I was busy thinking demons up
To plague my simple mind.
Tried to live an honest life
But then I realised
I couldn't grow a beard.

You kept harping on about your job
You think I should get one.
Heart attack at 41.
Well, that doesnt sound like fun to me,
I'd rather play guitar.

I wrote out my life story and
I read you every line.
You looked bored but you still smiled
then I guess an average life
doesn't make thrilling read.

You sang along with other songs
but you wouldn't sing with me.
Said “don't take it personally”,
I just “didn't have what she has”
and while that's true, it's kinda mean.
