The Freshmen
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,
Sobbing with my head on the floor
Stop a baby's breath and a shoe full of rice, no

I can't be held responsible
'Cause she was touching her face
I won't be held responsible
She fell in love in the first place

For the life of me I cannot remember
What made us think that we were wise and
We'd never compromise
For the life of me I cannot 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 a
Valium and slept
Now he's guilt stricken sobbing with his
Head on the floor
Think somebody now and how he never really
Wept he says

I can't be held responsible
'Cause she was touching her face
I won't be held responsible
She fell in love in the first place

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

We've tried to wash our hands of all of this
We never talk of our lacking relationships
And how we're guilt stricken sobbing with our
Heads on the floor
We fell through the ice when we tried not to
Slip, we'd say

I can't be held responsible
'Cause she was touching her face
And I won't be held responsible
She fell in love in the first place

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

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

We were merely freshmen
We were only freshmen

In the 90's we couldnt wait to grow up, now in our mid 30s and 40s we just want those simple times back.

Isn't that the unabashed truth.

fuck this is so true it hurts

And now we waste our lives documenting them rather then living them.

If we didn't have social media we'd have those times....

If you did not live in the 90's you just don't know......it was a time with JUST ENOUGH technology---but not to much . There was a vibe, and people were more social and compassionate. Every weekend---gathering at a friend's apartment and meeting new people around a bottle of wine and maybe smoking a little in a small college town. Seeing your future wife for the first time and talking about music and laughing with everyone. It makes me tear up----it was such a special time in history.....before people were obsessed with social media. Of course we had the internet, but NO ONE wanted to be stuck in front of a computer on Friday night. It is bittersweet to go back there in my mind----feels like if I stay to long I might cry.....
