lyrics

when i was a young boy,
i scratched my days with ink.
i thought, "when i get to the future,
i don't want to know how i think."

well, i forgot how to think.

and i've tried to remember the days
that weren't as bad as they seemed.


when i was a young girl,
i marked my days in pen.
i wanted to be able to look back,
to see where i'd been.

well, i know where i've been.

and i've tried to forget all the days
when i felt as bad as i did.


when i was a young child,
i drove myself mad
to try and remember
to remember the good and the bad.

about

Brine Webb Norman, Oklahoma

"Haunting melancholy, covered in a coat of drunken optimism. The simplicity of his lyrics defy the complexity of all they imply. Webb is a writer of desperate honesty and brilliant truth."
