I know you think that I shouldn't still love you,
Or tell you that.
But if I didn't say it, well I'd still have felt it
where's the sense in that?

    I remember hearing this song from childhood yes ('; [2] Same here! I heard it when I was in 5th grade in two places: the hair cuttery at my local Wal*Mart and Home Depot. I kept asking everyone who it was by and none of my classmates knew haha (not surprised). I'm glad I found it again. Great song.

    I too always heard the line as, "I will go down with this shit..." because the 't' is very hushed so I thought it sounded censored as a child. Didn't even consider that 'go down with this ship' makes more sense. :P
