Born Bad

They say the day
That I was born
It rained here
And yet it was the best
Day of your life.
And who would ever dream
A child, sweet as I seemed,
Would be the source of
So much pain and strife.

Every time I tried
To take the high road
Something deep inside me
Dragged me down
Where ever I appeared
Came hate, dispair and fear
Seems trouble always
Followed me around.
Say it’s not too late for
You to hold me
You were always there
When times were bad
And they’re so bad
The love you gave to me
So unconditionally
So sad, so sad
Born bad.

Nary have I written you
A letter
Hardly have I called
Lest things were bad
And all those I called friends
Are all gone in the end
In truth you were the best
I ever had
Mama, is it too late
For you to hold me?
You were always there
When times were bad
And they’re so bad
The love you gave to me
So unconditionally
So sad, so sad
Born bad.

I don’t want to go
I don’t want to go
I’m not ready yet
No! no!
