Story of My Life
Social Distortion Lyrics


Story of my life

Well, high school seemed like such a blur
I didn't have much interest in sports or school elections
And in class I dreamed all day
About a rock 'n' roll weekend
And the girl in the front of the room
So close yet so far, you know she never seemed to notice
That this silly school-boy crush wasn't just pretend

Life goes by so fast
You only want to do what you think is right
Close your eyes and then it's past
Story of my life

Story of my life
Story of my life
The story of my life

And I went down to my old neighborhood
The faces have all changed, there's no one there left to talk to
And the pool hall I loved as a kid
Is now a Seven Eleven

And I went downtown to look for a job
I had no training, no experience to speak of
And I looked at the holes in my jeans
And turned and headed back

Life goes by so fast
You only wanna do what you think is right
Close your eyes and it's past
Story of my life

Story of my life
Story of my life
Story of my life

And good times come and good times go
I only wish the good times would last a little longer
And I think about the good times we had
And why they had to end
So I sit at the edge of my bed
I strum my guitar and I sing an outlaw love song
Thinkin' 'bout what you're doin' now
And when you're comin' back

Life goes by so fast
You only wanna do what you think is right
Close your eyes and it's past
Story of my life

Story of my life
Story of my life
Story of my life
Story of my life
The story of my life

The story of my life

I first heard this song when I was 17 and I didn't really get the part about life going by so fast... now I'm 30 and I start to understand

Melissa Schermerhorn

I'm almost 48, such a true song

Gnomesmusher

Dude, I first heard this when I was 17 and now I'm 49. You'll understand it a lot more at my age. haha.

Brandon

I’m 25 and I realize this already, I was the same as you at 17, didn’t believe it. I look back at think about who told me and went “fuck was he right”, 8 years gone like that

Brian Goodman

So is life. All you can do now is remember the good times and soak up the nostalgia. I love everyone in these comments. Life does indeed go by so fast. Have a good life everyone!

Rorry Templeton

I freaked out a bit turning 30, but I just turned 40, and now I don't care, I feel the exact same as i did at 20.

If social distancing don't work for you, try some Social Distortion. Worked for me. I'm at peace now.
