I am confident
You got it right, I am confident
We were always told
Told what to do
What to say, what to eat, what to drink
Hell, I was even told how to do them!
Again, you are right
We did not get all that we wanted
You were even told to stay put at times -- most times
Don't do this -- don't do that
You and I heard them quite often
Such painful chests, we did have
Yes, I remember
There were moments, I daydreamed
Told myself, grow fast -- be old
Good lord, you probably even said, be better than them
I know -- I said it, too
What's with the long face looking back?
Is it sadness for reliving those moments?
Naaahhh -- I know that look -- that feeling
Funny that it actually isn't funny that our wishes came true
Why would it be?
We had great lives -- you and I, all of us
'Course we did!
We now wish we could be told how to fix things
At times, we even wish harder we could have somebody do everything for us
You've always been correct all the way
Certainly, we were ungrateful
