I Was Wrong Lyrics - Social Distortion

Review The Song (8)



Well, when I was young
I was so full of fear
I hid behind anger, held back the tears
It was me against the world,
I was sure that I'd win
But the world fought back, punished me for my sins
Well I felt so alone, so insecure
I blamed you instead made sure I was heard
And they tried to warn me of my evil ways
But I couldn't hear what they had to say

I was wrong
Self destruction's got me again
I was wrong
I realize now that I was wrong

And I think about my loves,
well I've had a few. Well I'm sorry that I hurt them,
sponsored links
Did I hurt you too?
I took what I wanted
Put my heart on the shelf
But how can you love when you don't love yourself?
It was me against the world
I was sure that I'd win
The world fought back, punished me for my sins
And they tried to warn me
Of my evil ways
But I couldn't hear what they had to say

I was wrong
Self destruction's got me again
I was wrong
I realize now that I was wrong
I was wrong, yeah
I was wrong

I grew up fast
And I grew up hard
Something was wrong from the very start
I was fighting everybody
I was fighting everything
But the only one that I hurt was me
I got society's blood running down my face
Somebody help me get outta this place
How could someone's bad luck last so long?
Until I realized that I was wrong.

I was wrong
Self destruction's got me again
I was wrong
I realize now that I was wrong
I was wrong
Self destruction's got me again
I was wrong
The only one that I hurt was me
I was wrong

Huh, you got it rough?... | Reviewer: Aaron | 2/15/13

I was Deputy Sheriff doing unlawful things, addicted to Speed, addicted to Sex, regretful for a terrible divorce w/kids - all my troubles came down to a severe Bi-Polar disorder...spent my life swinging at ghosts and demons...I am finally getting it right...Find your soul and you'll find the meaning...This music takes me on that thrill ride

Maximum empathy | Reviewer: Dabbly | 8/1/12

I can't say I've ever personally experienced this song, but I can imagine and empathize with the notion it sends. Suddenly, everything you've ever tried to accomplish and what ground you've made is turned topsy-turvey when you finally see that you were wrong.

I might make a reference to this in a fanfic I'm writing, where the secondary protagonist is essentially someone going through this kind of ordeal.

This was me, too... | Reviewer: dan | 5/12/12

Like others here, this song struck a personal chord with me. I can't remember when I first realized I was wrong, going about this life-thing the wrong way completely. It was before this song came along, but not too long before. And Thanks, Mr. Ness, for all you have done to enhance my life with your wonderful words and music. Now my daughter is into Social D, at age 20, and she has better taste in music than I do. ;)

<3 | Reviewer: Amanda | 11/16/10

I love this song, my church actually used this song as the theme when my pastor spoke about his testimony called punker 2 pastor. Anyways, i had never heard the song but now i love it even though it is secular it has a good message. anyways check out my pastors website praisechapelkc.com and click sermons. He's Awesome! God Bless! I love social distortion!

Theme of my life | Reviewer: Judge_Grimm | 7/18/09

For the past two years I hasve been fighting with myself against satanism. I spoke with the Chaplain about five days ago and now I am saved. The first time I heard this song I immediately felt it is perfect in descvribing the past two years of my life and have adopted it as my personal theme song. I LOVE it.
