You’re not the same
You’ve lived a life
The lines on your face
Are spreading like cracks in the ice

Your body is weak
But your mind it is strong
And still you look back
And you wonder where you went wrong

I’m trying not to care
But I care
That I’m not a young man anymore
That ship has sailed
I'm on the shore
And I wish I didn’t mind
But I can still see
That I can’t go back and change a thing
Whatever will be will be it seems to me

Sun up, sun down
You shuffle along
And ask yourself why
You never felt you belonged

Remember the good
Don’t focus on the pain
And one day you’ll see
That only the good will remain

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.
