Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.Carl Jung

Patrick’s always talking
About everybody else
He doesn’t even know 
He’s just talking about himself

"Two-faced Tommy
Is such a stupid clown
Always talking trash
When people aren’t around"

Patrick’s always talking
About everybody else
He doesn’t even know 
He’s just talking about himself

"Albert's so angry
Screaming all day
It makes my blood boil
When he acts that way"

Patrick’s always talking
About everybody else
He doesn’t even know 
He’s just talking about himself

“Walter’s such a drunk
He’ll never get it right
Always at the bar
I see him every night”

Patrick’s always talking
About everybody else
He doesn’t even know 
He’s just talking about himself

“Heather’s so jealous
She’s bitter and cruel
If I had all her privileges 
I wouldn’t be such a fool”

Patrick’s always talking
About everybody else
He doesn’t even know 
He’s just talking about himself

and so my heart is paying now

December 10, 2022

Another love before my time made your heart sad and blue
And so my heart is paying now for things I didn't doHank Williams, Cold Cold Heart

Don’t blame yourself
For your broken heart
It might feel heroic
But it isn’t very smart

There’s something you know
But you’ll never understand
She made you so happy
But she didn’t give a damn

You could spend some time with a real live girl
But you’d rather keep bleeding in Imaginary World

You’re a really sweet guy
But you gotta let it go
It wasn’t your fault
When she stomped on your soul

I really wanna love you
But I can’t compete
With a sad sad song
That you wanna repeat

You could spend some time with a real live girl
But you’d rather keep bleeding in Imaginary World
