It Never Happened

When I was sixteen.
I worked out a little plan.
I'd be nothing.
I'd be dead four years from then.

But it never happened.
And I missed out.
And it never happened.
And I found out.

All my friends.
Had their lives.
All laid out.
And I missed out.

When I was twenty one.
I worked out another plan.
A plan of success.
I'd be in the biggest band.

But it never happened.
And I missed out.
And it never happened.
And I found out.

All my friends.
Were divorced.
Are out of work.
Paying child support.

Later on you find out,
Things never work out.
Later on you find out,
Things don't work out.
