The Freshman by The Verve Pipe

When I was young I knew everything
And she, a punk who rarely ever took advice
Now I'm guilt-stricken, sobbin' with my head on the floor
Stopped a baby's breath and a shoe full of rice, no

Can't be held responsible
She was touchin' her face
I won't be held responsible
She fell in love in the first place

For the life of me
I can not remember
What made us think that we were wise and we'd never compromise
For the life of me
I can not believe we'd ever die
For these sins
We were merely freshmen

My best friend took a week's vacation to forget her
His girl took a week's worth of valium and slept
And now he's guilt-stricken, sobbin'
With his head on the floor
Thinks about her now and how he never really wept he said

Can't be held responsible
She was touchin' her face
I won't be held responsible
She fell in love in the first place

For the life of me
I can not remember
What made us think that we were wise and we'd never compromise
For the life of me
I can not believe we'd ever die
For these sins
We were merely freshmen

We tried to wash our hands of all of this
We'd never talk of our lacking relationships
And how we're guilt-stricken sobbin' with our heads on the floor
We fell through the ice when we tried not to slip we'd say

Can't be held responsible
She was touchin' her face
I won't be held responsible
She fell in love in the first place

For the life of me
I can not remember
What made us think that we were wise and we'd never compromise
For the life of me
I can not believe we'd ever die
For these sins
We were merely freshmen
We were merely freshmen
We were only freshmen

FOR THE LIFE OF ME BEN FOLDS FIVE DID MUCH BETTER WITH THIS SUBJECT WITH 'BRICK'

Well I don't know who Ben folds is, or brick. But I can say this song represents a feeling that everybody has to go through eventually. Regret. And the retaliation that not too long ago we were stupid assholes. Why do all hong people have to be stupid assholes? Man. I sure as hell was. My best years wasted on being a stupid jerk. Maybe I didn't kill anyone but I sure as hell killed myself. Sad. Now I don't want to get out of bed. Lame

Brick is a song by Ben Folds Five about a dude getting a girl pregnant and the aftermath after she has an abortion. Go listen to it.

As for wasted years... I think we all waste our youth to some extent.
