Original Song: Careless

My quest to write 5 songs before GDC 2017 continues. Song #3 is about my propensity to break things, and I tried go for something a little more light-hearted this time around.

CARELESS

The Last Unicorn is not supposed to feel regret.

Unicorns aren’t s’posed to feel regret But I do But I do

I prayed we’d survive all of our debts But I knew And I withdrew

Sweat and fear don’t guarantee That I’ll treat your heart tenderly

I wish for you that we had never met That this was just a sorry joke that nobody would get

I don’t know where you’re going to (I can’t be that responsible) I’ll do me and you do you (It doesn’t have to be so tragical)

I was a careless piece of shit And if I could, I’d erase all of it This isn’t high school, though, so it prob’ly won’t be long til you get over it

Not sure how I thought that we would work I’m not a boy You’re not a girl

Even if I wasn’t such a jerk I destroy Love to destroy

You tried to make me Honest (ME) Don’t you know that’s Impossibility

You’ll be okay - you just haven’t met The One yet Actually, why is it that you aren’t still upset?

I see you’re fine, well that’s new (I guess we weren’t all that serious) I’ll do me and you do you (But don’t you miss me just a little bit?)

I am a careless piece of shit Don’t know what I’ve got ‘til I’ve lost hold of it This isn’t high school, though, so I guess I better work on getting over it

Prob’ly maybe should get over it I’m over it Well, any day now
