Remember the time
You were sixteen and I was twenty-one
The inappropriate advancement
You made toward me
And I was shocked

Remember the time
You mentioned his name
How I betrayed the family
Was an embarrassment
And I cried

Remember the time
You reminded me
Of the razor blades
My trickles of blood
And how they stained you

Remember the time
You said I was a disgrace
And how they would talk
Behind my back
And you would feel ashamed

Remember the time
You took her word over mine
Drawing the line between us
You chose her over me
And I was excluded

Remember the time
You said I hurt her
And she needed to be
Protected from me
And I was to blame

Remember the time
You were at the show
With them
You acted like I didn't exist
And I cried

Remember the time
You got high with my son
After you knew his addiction
I asked you to stop
And you said it was my fault

Remember the time
You were seven
Had an accident walking home
She made fun of your misfortune
And I took care of you

Remember the time
You got the record deal
Were on the road
Struggling to make your claim
And I supported you

Remember the time
You confided in me
Shared your own
Struggles with addiction
And I listened

Remember the time
You called me still high
Crying your bad behaviour
Had lost your true love
And I consoled you

Remember the time
You tried
To get your life back on track
We talked a lot
And I counselled you

Remember the time
You lashed out at me again
When I shared my feelings
I was wrong to trust you
And I walked away for good
