You were good 
You were kind 
You were drunk all the time 
But never drunk enough 
As you're battered by the underside 
Of what we swore we wanted 
And bothered by the crapshoot 
That has put you half to sleep 
A sorely needed sleep 
I hang outside the door all night
I'll bang on the door all night

You are good 
You are brave 
No matter what you say 
But never brave enough 
As you're trying to shield your glass 
Newborn from the dodgeballs 
And aching for children 
That you have never seen 
It's still a tragedy 
It's still a tragedy
