Past Tense

Me as a child
Small, not really very threatening at all
And then sweet, sweet sixteen
Well I couldn't have been all that mean

But you criticised me
Yes you terrified me
And even though it's all in the

Past tense
Simple looky likey times
Still live on inside my mind
Past tense
Something you said in passing
Is still paralysing me
Past tense
I'm still afraid to make mistakes
Incase you take your love away
Past tense
It's not in the past tense at all

Me, young adult
Trying hard
I even sent to out birthday cards
Even now and I don't know how
You still have the power to hurt me

But you criticised me
Yes you terrified me
And even though it's all in the

CHORUS

Coz you criticised me
Yes you terrified me
And even though it's all in the

CHORUS
