about

Written somewhere in 2012, this song lists the regrets of someone who wishes he had taken different decisions at various points of his life. The "ragamuffin bloke" line refers to the book "True Story of a Little Ragamuffin" by James Greenwood.

lyrics

Wish my cap and feather days
Did not end up in the maze
As of now I’m left perplexed
In a life of hypertext
Wish I gained some confidence
Asked her for a comfy dance
As of now I’m left alone
Oozing of testosterone
On this Sunday afternoon
Dream a bitter dream
Mourning inability of
Acting on a whim
Why do I keep losing it?
Why do I keep missing opportunities?
Why am I still losing it?
Maybe it’s a curse?

Wish I pulled for Italy
Wouldn’t cry so bitterly
After all the bluish team
Always had a high esteem
Wish I held my wallet tight
In the darkness of the night
As it turns out I am broke
Like that ragamuffin bloke
On this Sunday afternoon
Dream a bitter dream
Mourning inability of
Acting on a whim
Why do I keep losing it?
Why do I keep missing opportunities?
Why am I still losing it?
Maybe it’s a curse?

Wish I wrote a testament
Left my fortune to a friend
As of now my greedy kids
Tear it up to little bits
Wish I said incinerate
Just before it was too late
As of now my shabby corpse
Will be eaten by the worms
On this Sunday afternoon
Dream a bitter dream
Mourning inability of
Acting on a whim
Why do I keep losing it?
Why do I keep missing opportunities?
Why am I still losing it?
Maybe it’s a curse?
