"Fast Times At Dropout High" as written by and Kris Roe....
"Fast Times at Dropout High"

alone at last. just nostalgia and I
we were sure to have a blast.
for you it was just another sunday
in a small indiana town.

I went by the place where you and I
wrote our names in wet cement
and for a moment remembered how it felt
to have no one understand that there's this dream
and they're not part of it. how soon we do forget.

the house was gone but the piano lingers on
and so does the fire that burned it to the ground.
you can take away all of my rights to see the day
but you can't take away my love for the day.

then there's the time that you took me aside
and said I was not your only son
childhood is so fucked up.
I never had any closer friends
than the ones I had when I was young.
alone again just you and i
nostalgia wave goodbye.
I think it's time for me to go.

    General Commenthey does anyone know where the little dialogue at the end of the song comes from? i think it's from a cheesy ben affleck movie but i don't remember but it sounds really familiar.

    General Commenti just wanted to say that the part with the piano after the little dialogue is truly beautiful... excellent use of the piano

    General CommentThe dialog at the end of the song is from Good Will Hunting. Its Ben Affleck talking to Matt Damon when they are at the construction site. And by the way, this song really kicks ass.

    General CommentEveryday I pick you up. We go out, have a few drinks, a few laughs, and it's great, but ya wanna know what the best part of my day is? It's the 10 seconds from when I pull up to the curb and I get to your door, and I'm hoping you won't be there. No good-bye, no see-ya-later, no nothing. Just picked up and left. I don't know much, but I know that.
