Voici les paroles de What I learned from TV, une magnifique chanson, lente et nerveuse à la fois.
If I could take back all the bad words and if I had prayed for all the pregnant girls and if I had told my mother I loved her, my sister I missed her, my father that he was like no other and if I was not bitter about the lover, who left me crying at the alter, I would be better, I would be stronger.
If the skies were clear and the stars were bright and if it was not pollution that caused the Northern Lights and everything was safe at night and people didn't fuss and fight, it would be better, we would live longer, I want to run faster, I wish I was more clever.
If guilt trips weren't my last resort and if I could hear that guys voice off Transworld Sport and if I hadn't cheated or lied to coincide with whatever game I was playing, we would be winning, we'd both be singing, my cat wouldn't be missing, my kitchen would be gleaming, I hate this feeling.
