"Reunion" as written by and Bobby Goldsboro....
In the year of my decline
Sucking freezies in the rain
Diving twisted to the suburbs
And then driving back again

Seventeen and half alive
Headlights illuminate the school
Inhale the powder from the science class
Yes, nearly dying felt so cool

Your face is all that hasn't changed
You're reassembled just like me
But when I reach to touch your hand
You stroke mine gently

All I want is one more chance
To be young and wild and free
All I want is one more chance
To show you you were right for me
You were right for me!

I'm back in gym and it's the same
As my name tag floats away
I had six too many drinks last night
Yes, and that's why I made you stay

Plus I always wanted you
You liked to rock it in your car
You said you didn't understand me
Because I always tried to see so far

Well Tainted Love's too fast to dance to
So let's leave them all behind
They hated us with everything they had
And we hated them in kind

All I want is one more chance
To be young and wild and free
All I want is one more chance
To show you you were right for me

All I want is one more chance
To be young and wild and free
All I want is one more chance
To show you you were right for me

Reunion, reunion
Reunion, reunion
Reunion, reunion
Reunion, reunion

    General CommentI guess this is a coming of age song of sorts. "All i want is one more chance to be young and wild and free," before facing responsible adulthood.

    General Commentim thinking maybe hes at his high school name tag (notice the references to high school stuff and a name tag) while hes there he sees a woman he loved. she hasnt changed... he realizes that he wants a chance to be young and back in high school again and tell this woman that she was right for him...

    General Comment"Nearly dying felt so cool"

    Until I heard Stars perform this song, I thought that Torquil sang "Nearly died, it felt so cool." I think I like it this way better. I really identified with that feeling, that you're a teenager, and you've got it all figured out. You're doing things that are so new to you and life is exhilarating because of it. I liked interpreting it as if they were inhaling something that was completely harmless, but they felt so cool from doing it, that they almost died. Of course, "Nearly dying felt so cool" works too, but it doesn't trigger that same spark of a memory for me.

    General Commentyah he's at his high school reunion and he remembers how it felt to be so "young and wild and free" and wants to like that again, and also he sees a women he used to date, who probably dumped him and she's completely changed, just like he has ("you're reassembled just like me") but he still wants to show her that she was right for him, maybe even have a wild and free night with her. haha.

    "You liked to rock it in your car"

    I love that line. The imagery in the song is incredible. It makes me so happy. I always bop along when I listen to it.
