“Regret”

Maybe I’ve forgotten the name and the address
Of everyone I’ve ever known
It’s nothing I regret
Save it for another day
It’s the school exam and the kids have run away
I would like a place I could call my own
Have a conversation on the telephone
Wake up every day that would be a start
I would not complain of my wounded heart
I was upset you see
Almost all the time
You used to be a stranger
Now you are mineI wouldn’t even trust you
I’ve not got much to give

We’re dealing in the limits
And we don’t know who with
You may think that I’m out of hand
That I’m naive, I’ll understand
On this occasion, it’s not true
Look at me, I’m not you

I would like a place I could call my own
Have a conversation on the telephone
Wake up every day that would be a start
I would not complain of my wounded heart

I was a short fuse
Burning all the time
You were a complete stranger
Now you are mine

I would like a place I could call my own
Have a conversation on the telephone
Wake up every day that would be a start
I would not complain about my wounded heart

Just wait till tomorrow
I guess that’s what they all say
Just before they fall apart

One Response to Regret – New Order

    What a change in ‘dynamics’ from the last post, Kevin. For the last little while I’ve been involved with several blog on ‘People Pleasing’. Yes, it was my daughter who alerted me to the ‘fact/possibility’ that this has been a part of my ‘character???’. So yes, to see something from a different perspective. Quite different from the internal analysis that focuses on being ‘aware’ of your thoughts, etc. but instead concentrates on developing awareness of your interaction with others. Yes. I like Nietzsche’s ‘perspectivism’. But it has also led to me cutting off from a couple of relationships, (one unfortunately, with the people pleasing consequence of ‘reactive’ – or ‘on the side of anger’ outburst. So now is the problematic – should I go back and cancel what I did, and said, or would that lead to more ‘people pleasing’. Yes an interesting concept). But that put aside, I did happen on this post in the last little while too….and yes, I find there as with a lot of things, there are many interpretations possible. Hope you enjoy. (It followed a discussion on whether it was possible for ‘something to come from nothing’….well you are no doubt aware of the many contexts and varieties in the expression of this thought. But the future? for instance…where does that come from???? 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RNdl-HIkDqQ
