Had it really been a year since
I cried so much that afternoon, I cried for you
I cried for George
I cried for the world and all of us
I laughed with joy, in wonder as I do
For how the light played upon the leaves
I lay down. I spun around.
I washed myself
And I thought I knew.
It had already been a year. I can’t believe
Sometimes, how time flies
And you know I was always this way.
Just so close to the edge of unraveling
Just so desperate to be told
I was more than good enough
To be made to feel I was everything
I was your great delight
To be showered with affection and encouraged and praised
Nothing so high maintenance
Just the same amount of adulation that I always gave
Oh I’ve come so far from the early days.
Now it’s an encore performance
Phoned in when I’m bored
It could never compare to the real me
Just a smidge more refined
Twice bitten and all of that shite
Hiding away biding my time
Tell me what you think before we both die
