Lyrics

Hey little kid,
that I saw at the bus stop one day
It was nearly midnight in Honolulu
We were waiting for the shuttle
to take us to the airplane,
but you mother said,
yes, your mother said,
like I couldn't hear her
she said, "Get the fuck away from me! Why don't you ever shut up?! Get the fuck away from me!"

Oh..
Well, I just want to say that it happened
cause one day when you ask yourself,
"Did it really happen?"
You won't believe it, but yes, it did
and I'm sorry
and I'm sorry
Cause it happens every day

They won't believe you
when you tell them
They won't believe you
when you say,
"My mother, she did not love me."
"My mother, she did not love me."

No, No, No..

Some days you'll feel like a cartoon
and people will rush to make excuses for you
You'll hear yourself complain,
but don't you ever shut up
Please, kid, have your say
Cause I'll still love you
even if
I don't see you again.
