  1. You Were Mine

Lyrics

You Were Mine
(Tiffany Williams)

You were born half-damned, anybody would give you that
They ignored you or they beat you with a coat rack
They had you hawking pills when you were seventeen
It ain’t no wonder you got so mean
It ain’t no wonder you got so bitter and so mean

A belly full of of devil cremes and alcohol
The easy throb of heroin and fentanyl
When they found you lying face down on the floor
I wonder if they knew what for
I wonder if they ever asked you what for

(Pre-Chorus)
I guess I’ll never know the whole truth, just the parts people tell me when they’re stoned
They always say they don’t wanna speak ill of the dead, but you’ve been gone
You’ve been gone

(Chorus)
You were no good, and you hurt me
You were everything I came to learn that I don’t wanna be
You were selfish and reckless most of the time
But you were mine

I only knew you during my forgetting years
I’ve got your mouth and eyes like yours but mine are clear
When I think about you now it’s like a dream
One that’s dark and hard to see
And the more I try to make it out, the quicker it leaves

(Pre-Chorus)
I remember knowing that I loved you, but even when I cried you wouldn’t stay
I’d sit in your lap, chew your hair while you smoked Winston Lights and I’d drift off
And you’d drift off

CHORUS
You were no good, and you hurt me
You were everything I came to learn that I don’t wanna be
You were selfish and reckless most of the time
But you were mine
