Lyrics:

It was never a bad thing
that you loved me too much
it was never a bad thing
your heart beating and such
it was never a bad thing
your happy times grew
it was only a bad thing
that I never loved you

I spend time with writers and poets in black
drinking coffee, eating heartache. giving nothin back
my words so profound that all flocked around me
my words full of crap as their awe would surround - me


It was never a good thing
you found me at all
it was never a good thing I answered your call (that you had to fall)
it was never a good thing
in your black limousine
it was only a good thing I was jaded and mean

I walked on the river bank cluttered with slime
and I wrote down a few words - that never would rhyme
as I picked up some garbage some bottles some tin
and I felt I was real there - not the fake that I've been

It is never a bad thing the lights and the song
and it wasn't too bad when the concerts ran long
and it wasn't too bad seeing smiles, tears and faces
but it hurt awfully bad in my own lonely spaces

Take me back to the garbage where everything's real
to the shelters and gas stations where everyone feels
dirty and weary from working too long
and words, rhymes and prose - hold no meaning in song.

It was never a bad thing that you loved me too much
and it was never a bad thing our hearts beating - and such
It was never a bad thing - your happy times grew
It was only a bad thing that I never loved you
yes it was only a bad thing
that I never loved you.
