I wish I could go back to college
Life was so simple back then

What would I give
To go back and live
In a dorm with a meal plan again

I wish I could go back to college
In college you know
Who you are
You sit in the quad
And think oh my god
I am totally gonna go far

How do I go back to college
I don't know who I am anymore

I wanna go back
To my room
And find a message
In dry-erase pen on the door

I wish I could just drop a class
Or get into a play
Or change my major
Or fuck my T.A
I need an academic adivisor
To point the way

We could be
Sitting in the computer lab
Four a.m before the final
Paper is due
Cursing the world
That I didn't start sooner
And seeing the rest of the class there too

I wish I could go back to college

How do I go back to college?


I wish I had taken more pictures.

But If I were to go back to college
Think what a loser I'd be-
I'd walk through the quad
And think
Oh my god
These kids are so much younger than me

    General CommentSelf-explanatory. I don't wish I could. In fact, I realized when I was at a restaurant last night surrounded by very young people that I am too old to converse and too old to want to speak the language and spend all my time drinking booze and picking people up for sex. It's not me. It reallly never was. I want to have fun, but it's not my kind of fun. I like remembering what I did the night before. I like laughing and acting stupid, but within reason. To each his own, though.
