You went away. Slowly but surely I forgot your name. It was something that started with an...Oh, I don’t remember. But I think I’m better off anyway. Day after day, it wasn’t easy, but I moved on someway. Until all of a sudden you showed up and told me that your mind had changed. But I was better off without you. Inside my head, I’ve played out the scene again and again. And I’d like to think that I’d say no, but if you came back, I know I’d fold as soon as you returned. Because you’ve had my heart, even since the day that things fell apart. And I haven’t stopped thinking of you and me together. Though I know it’s wrong. But I was better off without you. I know I couldn’t change your mind because you’re just the same old person. I used to think that you could change.

We Were Pirates is the musical brainchild of Mike Boggs, a multi-instrumentalist who writes and records songs in his home studio in the DC area.

To date, Boggs has released three We Were Pirates albums & a film score for the Calvin & Hobbes documentary ‘Dear Mr. Watterson’ in 2013.

2012's Change is slightly more mature and aggressive than Boggs’ previous works, but with the same WWP catchiness.
