I gave my first kiss to you
while "everybody hurts" was on the radio.
and you did hurt me, eventually.
for you it was only a kiss,
whilst for me it was the end of innocence.
I never quite understood
how a day could mean so much to a person
and be just another Tuesday to another.
I've been living under your shadow forever
and then some more.
it took me some time to find out
what the hidden message was. no pain no gain.
and i gained -oh- so much,
till I finally found a girl
that could understand not the things i said,
but the motivation behind them.
yet, she had some learning of her own to do.
so she hurt me too.
tough luck, I guess...
