Recovery (exercise 4)

Man, I was a real fucked up child.
I don't think I ever recovered from that.
"Home" moved around a lot
and I don't think I ever recovered from that.
My seventh summer, I lost a close friend
and I don't think I ever recovered from that.
This one time, furniture split my head open
and I don't think I ever recovered from that.
Watching my mates fall into the dark?
I don't think I ever recovered from that.
I even lost myself to exercise bulimia
and I don't think I ever recovered from that.
Then I gained it all back, real fast,
and I don't think I ever recovered from that.
The day I sat on the edge of the Grand Canyon.
I don't think I ever recovered from that.
Or playing the role of the Frog Princess.
I don't think I ever recovered from that.
Man, I haven't changed towns since 2004
and I don't think I ever recovered from that.
Someone told me I've a "trust-able" face
and I don't think I ever recovered from that.
Realizing that I've gained job immunity?
I don't think I ever recovered from that.
The kicker is my generally fast recovery time,
which I don't think I'll ever recover from.
