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
Ah ah ah ah

Verse 2:
And the girl in the front of the room
So close yet so far ya know she never seemed to notice
That this silly schoolboy crush
Wasn't just pretend
Ah ah ah ah
Chorus w/Rhythm Figure 1:
Life goes by so fast
You only want to do what you think is right
Close your eyes then it's past
Story of my life
Story of my life
La la la la
Story of my life
Story of my life
Verse 3:
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
Ah ah ah ah
Verse
And I
I had
And I
And I
Ah ah

4:
went downtown to look for a job
no training, no experience to speak of
looked at the holes in my jeans
turned and headed back
ah ah

Repeat Chorus

Good times come and good times go
I only wish the good times would last a little longer
I think about the good times we had
And why they had to end
Ah ah ah ah
Verse 6:
So I sit at the edge of my bed
I strum my guitar and I sing an outlaw love song
Thinking about what you're doing now
And when you're coming back
Ah ah ah ah
Repeat Chorus
