Taken for Granted

They pushed me against the car
It was raining
They told me I was in big trouble
As they handcuffed me I could hear it....

Drip
Drip
Drip

Drip

I wish it was the rain I was hearing
No, it was my mom's tears
Her sobs
I wish I had the guts to look at her

In life, some things are taken for granted
Like your reputation...
Your friends...
The love from your family...

I used to take that for granted
But things change
People change
Life changes
Way
Too

Fast

I wish "I'm sorry" would fix it
I wish it was that easy
But life doesn't work like that...
And it never will
