"In My High School" as written by and Timothy Jon/larsen Johnson....
In my high school we separate the rich from the rest
Those who wear rags and those who only wear the best
And in my high school the hold assemblies for the football team
But never for the kids with different dreams

(1st chorus)
We've got jocks and we've got smokers
Rednecks and jokers
There's a category for us all
And we stuggle with out homework our teachers and their rules
Yeah, they think we're just adolescent fools
In my high school there's some who think they're tough as they can be
But when I look in their eyes all I see is insecurity
And in my high school there's some who will wait
And then there's some who won't
Some that cross those lines and some that don't

(2nd chorus)
We've got outcasts and we've got rebels
Mostly saints, sometimes devils
You see them walkin' up and down the hall
As they stuggle with their boyriends their girlfriends their math
And they long for the bell that gets them out of class...in my high school

(bridge)
We laugh, we cry, we fall, we fly.
And sometimes we wonder why we're even here
We pass, we fail and only time will tell
If we'll ever make it though these teenage years
In my high school there's some who study for their entrance exams
Some just want to play guitar in some rock 'n roll band
And in my high school the seniors just can't wait for June
They don't realize that we grow up way too soon

(3rd chorus)
They'll be doctors, they'll be lawyers
Teachers and warriors
And they'll live out their dreams big and small
And they'll struggle with their jobs their husbands and their wives
And they'll talk about the best days of their lives--in my high school, in my high school, in my high school

    My InterpretationThis song talks about life in high school and the struggles that go on during that time. It moves on to say that when we grow up, we'll remember those times as the best parts of our lives. Life gets so much harder when we become adults.
