i thought about sitting on the floor in second grade
        i couldn't keep the pace
        i thought i was the only one moving in slow motion
        while the other kids knew something i did not
        but if i acted like a clown
        i thought it'd get me through, it did
        but that don't work no more
        you're not a kid no more
        i thought i'd do some travelling
        never did

        regrets, regrets

        i thought about the hours wasted
        watching t.v., drinking beer
        i thought about the things i thought about
        until immobilized with fear
        and all the great ideas i had
        and how we just made fun
        of those who had the guts to try and fail
        and then i ended up in jail

        regrets, regrets

        ... but just for a day
        seems the police had made a computer mistake
        said there must be thousands like me with the same name
        anyway, i thought about the things i settled for or never tried
        i never visited my grandma even once
        when she was sick before she died
        so i don't blame you if you never come to see me here again

        regrets, regrets...
