I Was Wrong

Tilbage i 1996 lyttede jeg en hel del til det amerikanske band Social Distortion og deres album White Light, White Heat, White Trash. Bag deres rå lyd ligger der ofte et budskab, der stikker meget dybere. En sang, jeg vender tilbage til, er “I Was Wrong”. Alene det at turde skrive en sang om at indrømme sine fejltagelser på denne måde gør sangen værd at kende.

Her er teksten.

When I was young, I was so full of fear
I hid behind anger and held back the tears
It was me against the world; I was sure I would win
But the world fought back, punished me for my sins
Well, I felt so alone, so insecure
But I blamed you instead, made sure I was heard
They tried to warn me of my evil ways
But I couldn’t hear what they had to say

I was wrong
Self-distruction got me again
I was wrong
I realize now that I was wrong

And I think about my loves; well, I’ve had a few
I’m sorry that I hurt them; did I hurt you too?
Well, I took what I wanted; put my heart on the shelf
But how can you love when you don’t love yourself?
It was me against the world; I was sure that I’d win
But the world fought back, punished me for my sins
They tried to warn me of my evil ways
But I couldn’t hear what they had to say

Well, I grew up fast, and I grew up hard
Something was wrong from the very start
I was fighting everybody; I was fighting everything
But the only one that I hurt was me
I got society’s blood running down my face
Somebody help me get out of this place
How could someone’s bad luck last so long
Until I realized that I was wrong.
