Lyrics

Once I was complete and
Safe within your heart
Me - with a preference for
Making things worse

So, now I am a was
Now I am a was
I started at the top
And I worked my way down

Once I was so smugly
Foremost in your thoughts
Me - with a talent for
Making you cry

So, now I am a was
Now I am a was
I started at the top
And I worked my way down
So, now I am a was

So, now I am a was
I am a was
So, now I am a was
I am a, I am a, I am a, I am a,
