Ed wasn’t like the other boys
So someone said,
“I’ll bet he goes for boys” and we agreed
We made jokes and I made friends
With all the guys who’d never speak to me

A family moved in up the street
In English they chose not to speak
We couldn’t grasp that ideology
So we threw eggs and I threw up
The next best thing to an apology

But somehow
We turned out all right
For awhile they had to wonder
If our fear would pull us under

When I was eight I tempted fate
A big mistake
I told a girl she meant the world to me
I broke down when she broke up
And spent the rest of recess in a tree

I wasn’t always thin like this
A TV lovin’ kid
I’d walk to class while insults followed me
They grew quiet as I grew up
But when will I get my apology?

    General CommentI really identify with this song. This is a throwback to everyone's childhood. It's hard to put into words, but each of these situations is like something similar that has happened to all of us when we were young. And no, we never do get an apology for the messed up stuff that went down back then.
