the past lyrics – never shout never

“the past”

and i sing songs about the past.
how i was raised and i was thrown out on my *ss,
cause i didn’t care.
about going to school.

and i saw the look in her eyes.
my mother nearly cried when i had told her that i had wanted to go,
just to prove them wrong.

i’ve been smoking cigarettes since i was only fourteen,
just to find an escape from this town that was so mean to me.

and i sing songs about my friends.
the way we grew up, and all the lose ends we used to laugh,
cause we didn’t give a d*mn.

and i saw the look in my brother’s eyes,
when i told him i was leaving he couldn’t help but despise me.
he’s wanted out his whole life.

i’ve been smoking the green since i was merely sixteen,
just to find an escape from this town that was so mean to me.

and i sing songs about the past.

i plead for relief,
this town won’t receive
all the things that i want.
the things that i need.

and i’ll beg and i’ll beg.
i’m down on my knees.
mama, oh mama,
let me please leave

i plead for relief.
this town won’t receive,
all the things that i want.
the things that i need.

all i ever wanted was love.
