kind of

i've always thought i was a nice guy
i've always thought i was a nice guy with a pretty mean side
i've always thought we were pretty close
i've always thought we'd be sure to last
i've always thought we were an average family
i've always thought violence was not the way of the land
i've always thought that mean side was just a phase
i've always thought that it'd go away
but by the way things have been going, it's made a point
that it's here to stay

you always said that i'd be free one day
you always said that i was bitter/rotten
you always said that i had come from the sun's rays
you always said that i would be forgotten
you told me i was a mean guy
you always told me i was a mean guy with a kind of nice side

i've always thought i was semi-decent
i've always thought that all grounds were for speaking
i've always thought it wouldn't take this long to ease me
i've always thought we'd be friends for life--since 7th
grade
i've always thought i'd make it on my own
i've always thought you'd keep me down
i've always said i was ok
i've always thought so, anyway
but by the way things have been going, it's made a point
that it's here to stay

you always said, "we're all so simple, people"
you always said, "we ask too much of others"
you always made me feel you really cared
you always told me that we were like brothers
you always said someday we'd find a meaning
you always felt like all you had was all you needed
you always told me i was a mean guy
you always told me i was a mean guy with a kind of nice side

i always thought i was an ok guy
i've always known i'd be the lonely kind
