When I was twelve I smoked pot.
~I was just learning how~
As I inhaled I started to choke.
Then everyone started to saying "toke!"
If I'd known then what I know now.
When I was fourteen I snorted coke.
~I was just learning how~
As I snorted my nose began to burn.
Then my stomach started to turn.
If I'd known then what I know now.
When I was seventeen I shot meth.
~I was just learning how~
As I shot up I began to cry.
I still remember that first high.
If I'd known then what I know now.
When I was seventeen everyone cried.
~I was just learning how~
As they buried me in the rain,
I never realized I could cause so much pain,


I wish I'd known then what I know now.
