I threw you away
So I could play
I wanted the other side
What I didn’t know
I was walking so fast
Now walking slow
Around (I ran?) to the butcher
He cut me up
I took a lot of years
For the pieces to get back
Slow walking now
Got no place to go
And I don’t care
I feel like I’m there
I’m at the playground
But I’m watching the children
I can’t play nothing
I don’t know how
The spirit moves me
Along with the breeze
I alight on some sidewalk
It must be the park
I like the flowers
I like the statues
I threw you away
So I could play

    Song MeaningA forlorn spirit reflects on an abandoned life and childhood memories that can no longer be relived. Reminds me of "I See The Boys Of Summer In Their Ruin", by Dylan Thomas. Not sure if the forlorn spirit is actually DEAD.

    General Comment'I threw you away so I could play'. Sounds good to me! Unfamiliar with the artist, though. I'll have to check him/her out when I have nothing better to do.
