another summer past. there was a test, i think we all failed, we must have left our cheat sheets in our lockers. changing faces in the dorms yeah, still here guess i could have gone, and when you write up your midterms, ill write, another rock song. funny how things turn out, its a punch line that makes me choke, and when a lightbulb flashes in your mind i just lite up another smoke. invincible i had it figured out, these tables turned without a doubt. when you return tell me what you learned and whats burning out. what we had was good, good times come to an end this is credit to that departure. used to wish the time would pass, now its just passed me up. i play those movies over in my head. the ghosts of my past returned, they're all haunting me, when your catching up on homework, i'll be catching up on memories. as you make new friends, dont forget your old ones. our footsteps may never close again, in the smiles and tears i will think of you. our time is a sky. and when your driving home for your winter holiday, ill be driving home for practice, destined to play

    General CommentA person who makes themselves happy is a succesful person.

    All the parallel lines are my favorites, the midterm/rock song, the winter holiday/practice. It says to me "you have your boring stable life, and I'm going to risk it, play in a band, and give it my best shot."

    "I guess I could have gone..." away to college?

    Lyrically reminds me of going away to college by blink 182. lockers, departure. Love this song.
