Flashback to 1999,
It's the summer, not a cloud in the sky.
Present day, things have changed,
Summer's over, and it rains here everyday.

Don't cry, we all make mistakes from time to time,
Unfortunately for me, being me was mine.
Don't cry, we all make mistakes from time to time,
Unfortunately for me, being me was... mine.

But how so,
I'm only 21 years old.
I used to be so happy,
Now here's another sad song by a sad boy playing the saddest chords he knows.

Don't cry, we all make mistakes from time to time,
Unfortunately for me, being me was mine.
Don't cry, we all make mistakes from time to time,
Unfortunately for me, being me was...

[Instrumental]

Don't cry, we all make mistakes from time to time,
Unfortunately for me, being me was mine.
Don't cry, we all make mistakes from time to time,
Unfortunately for me, being me was mine.

[Instrumental]

    My InterpretationThis song holds something for me, I was only a kid in 1999, life was simple, seemed like I had no worries, which compared to life now, I really didn't. "Present day, things have changed, Summer's over, and it rains here everyday." Things change I grew up, and things happen, and we don't always end up where we want to. Amazing song, and hold so much meaning.

    General CommentSuch a moving song, it kind of has Mike thinking about the time when he was around the age I am so I can sort of relate to bits of it, but I can see how it was different for him growing up at a different time

    General CommentI think that this song is showing how things have changed, and how mistakes where made and he's trying to accept how he ended up. It's showing that you can basically do anything even if you are a little bit sad, and that its okay.
