When I think of you, I must admit
I still feel something strange
Though it’s been nearly a lifetime since
I’ve uttered your old name

And I don’t even know why it came to me now
With that old familiar ring
And I know I can’t find my way back in
But I’m trying anyway

I don’t know why
I never told you
You had a right to know the truth
I can't take it back, but I can say I'm sorry
I never meant to ruin this
But intentions don’t always amount to much

Now I’m well aware that we’ve both moved on
I’m not trying to re-open wounds
But it’s haunted me for all these years
And I wondered if it haunted you

If so, then I hope this will ease your mind
Maybe now you can break the curse
But I’m sorry for what I did to you
Back then, for what it’s worth

We Were Pirates Washington, D.C.

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.
