What made us think we were wise and we’d never compromise.

When I was young I knew everything
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

I can’t be held responsible
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 weeks’s worth of
Valium and slept
And now he’s guilt stricken sobbing with his
Head on the floor
Thinks about her now and how he never really
Wept he says

I can’t be held responsible
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

hey yeah
hey yeah
hey yeah

We’ve tried to wash our hands of all 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
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

Es ist gerade keine gute Zeit.
Dieser Song erinnert mich an meine späte Teenagerzeit, als wir dachten, dass alles geht – keine Kompromisse. Alles hat sich geändert, einige Träume sind zerplatzt, die Realität hat uns die ein oder andere Ohrfeige verpasst, aber diese Sehnsucht in uns, die ist noch da, irgendwo. Hoffe ich. Hoffe ich sehr.

  1. Und wieder wunderschöner Song! Erinnert mich so von der Stimme und dem Sound her ein wenig an Toad the wet sprocket übrigens!
    Liebe Grüße

    • Interessant, Toad The Wet Sprocket kannte ich bisher noch nicht. Werde ich mir gleich mal auf Spotify zu Gemüte führen. Danke für den Tipp und den Kommentar!
      Liebe Grüße auch für dich!
