I didn't notice that you cut your hair,
I didn't notice that it was blue,
I didn't notice that you pierced your tongue,
I don't recall the dress you wore the day I met you,
I almost missed your birthday once again,
Your sister called me just in time,
I forgot to wipe my muddy shoes,
You get so pissed when I track around the grime,
This is but a test,
This is just a trial run,
You can still push reset,
Trade me in for a better one,
Sometimes I'm a **** I'm a rabid hockey fan,
All I can promise is I'll do the best I can,
I forgot to pick you up on time,
And I forgot to pay the bills,
I forgot to put the seat back down,
Sometimes my drinking buddies take your favorite pills,
You can't say I don't bring you flowers anymore,
Because I don't bring them any less,
And I don't take you to your favorite store,
'cause I don't have the money to buy your favorite dress,
But I work and I try,
I'm not as big a jerk as every other guy you ever liked,
you ever knew,
Once in a while I go with you to buy new shoes,
But I work and I try,
I'm not quite as big a jerk as every other guy you ever liked,
You ever knew,
Sometimes I break down and take you to the zoo
