Never Get to Know by Paul Baribeau on Paul Baribeau. What a great song. Lyrics: I'll never get to know my friend Steven
He thought he found an answer
He was my firend since kindergarden
And then I watched him disappear.
I'll never get to know my friend Mellisa
She had a baby when she was sixteen
And now she works in a mall in Florida
Sometimes I wonder who she could have been.
I'll never get to know my mom's friend Bonnie
She's the one who made me want to be an artist
She could paint the prettiest pictures
until both her lungs collapsed.
I'll never get to know my mom's friend Harry
He had a low scrattchy growl of a voice
He sing "make me an angel that flies from montgomery"
And then he drank himself to death
I'll never get to know my sister
Because my sister is a crack head
But thank God I remember
When she was just a little kid
I'll never get to know my dad
Because my dad lives in a dream
And even though I think he's the best
He seems so far from everything
And I'll never get to know my mom
Because my mom is an alcholic
And I bet when she was young
She never saw it coming
You might wonder why I'm an asshole
I wonder I'm so uptight
I wonder why I just don't chill out
And learn how to have a good time
But sometimes I'm scared right out of my mind
And sometimes I just get angry
Because I've been let down by the people that I love
But I will not let down the people who love me.
