Story of My Life
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 schoolboy crush
Wasn't just pretend

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 I went down to my old neighborhood
The faces have all changed and there's no one left to talk to
And the pool hall I loved as a kid
Is now a 7-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

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

So I sit at the edge of my bed
I strum my guitar and I'm singin' out my 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
