Here's the day you hoped would never come
Don't feed me violins
just run with me through rows of speeding cars.
The papercuts the cheating lovers
The coffee's never strong enough
i know you think it's more than just bad luck

There there baby
it's just text book stuff
it's in the ABC of growing up
Now, now darling
oh don't lose your head
cause none of us were angels
and you know I love you yeah

Sleeping pills know sleeping dogs lie
never far enough away
Glistening in the cold sweat of guilt
I've watched you slowly winding down for years
You can't keep on like this...
now's a bad a time as any

There there baby
it's just text book stuff
it's in the ABC of growing up
Now now darling
oh don't kill yourself
cause none of us were angels
and you know I love you yeah

it's ok by me..
it's ok by me..
it's ok by me..it was a long time ago


it's ok by me..
it's ok by me..
it's ok by me..it was a long time ago

There there baby
it's just text book stuff
it's in the ABC of growing up
Now now darling
oh don't lose your head
cause none of us were angels
and you know I love you yeah

There there baby
it's just text book stuff
it's in the ABC of growing up
Now now darling
oh don't kill yourself
cause none of us were angels
and you know I love you yeah

    My OpinionA - i cant belive there are no comments for this awesome song. I wonder if thats a software glitch.

    B- This song is about forgivemess, my opinion, of course.

    Here's the day you hoped would never come
    Don't feed me violins
    just run with me through rows of speeding cars.
    The paper-cuts the cheating lovers
    The coffee's never strong enough
    i know you think it's more than just bad luck

    The author is saying I've heard it all before and been through it all before. Lets forget about our lives and mistakes for a minute here. After all, it wasn't all bad luck, decisions were made to lead to misfortunes and disappointments.

    There there baby
    it's just text book stuff
    it's in the ABC of growing up
    Now, now darling
    oh don't lose your head
    cause none of us were angels
    and you know I love you yeah

    All of this happens and more will happen. Its all part of maturing and I guess, it all never really ends (if it does, then your jaded and closed). Don't hold others to higher standards than you do yourself, we all make mistakes. Don't make the issue more than it really is.


    Now now darling
    oh don't kill yourself

    Again, possibly not physically killing yourself by keeping a loved one away from yourself and thus depriving oneself of the joys of life and shared experiences they could have in the awesome company of this person they are pushing away for a mistake that was long time ago.


    it's ok by me..
    it's ok by me..it was a long time ago
