Do you remember?

We never talked about it but I hear the blame was mine
I'd call you up to say I'm sorry,
But I wouldn't want to waste your time
'Cause I love you, but I can't take anymore
There's a look I can't describe in your eyes
If we could try like we tried before
Would you keep on telling me those lies?
Do you remember?

There seemed no way to make up,
'Cause it seemed your mind was set
And the way you looked it told me,
It's a look I know I'll never forget
You could've come over to my side,
You could've let me know
You could've tried to see the distance between us
But it seemed to far for you to go
Do you remember?

Through all of my life,
In spite of all the pain
You know that people are funny sometimes,
'Cause they just can't wait to get hurt again,
Tell me do you remember?

There are things we won't recall,
And feelings we'll never find
It's taken so long to see it,
'Cause we never seemed to have the time
There was always something more important to do,
More important to say
But "I love you" wasn't one of those things,
And now it's too late
Do you remember

You know it's bad when your little girls are arguing over whether "what in the world" or "oh my word" are bad things to say or not. Oh, my. I need some real help. They are self-righteous and pious already. Now they are calling each other wonderland and candyland instead. It's cropping up and rearing it's sweet and cute and ugly little head.

Hahaha! I can relate. My kids used to argue over the expletive "oh, my goodness." Now I have to tell my older ones to limit the number of times they say "crap" and "pissed."

Crap, pissed, it sucks, damn it...

They are the height of all sinfulness.

A little kid saying fart, that is even worse.
