Social Distortion – Story Of My Life lyrics

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, 'bout a rock 'n' roll weekend.

And the girl in the front of the room,
So close yet so far y'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.
Story of my life.

And I went down to my old neighborhood,
The faces have all changed, there's no one left to talk to.
And the pool hall I loved as a kid is now a 7-11.

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

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

    "Story of My Life" aches with regret for choices not made. Our narrator had some good times, sure, but he never told the girl at the front of the room about his true feelings for her. Similarly, he never extended himself to get a job downtown thanks to his ratty clothes and lack of self-confidence. Now he sits alone in his room, playing someone else's music (and a love song at that), thinking of the girl he never approached in high school. The narrator is not a successful guitar player - he never mentions playing in front of a crowd or on stage - and he's stuck in his home town... A town where all his friends have fled and the communal hot spot, the pool hall, is gone for good, replaced by a pathetic chain store designed to suck spare change out of your pockets. As he said, he only wanted to do what he thought was right, but it seems that he never did... And now it's too late.

    Lol as the song says this so could be my life story :). I miss those days of wild carefree living thinking we'll live forever & being neive thinking you could trust people especially those who called themselves friends. How simple love seemed even though you'd have overly complicated moments it was always about being together & having fun enjoying your time together then you grow up & forget what makes you laugh & happy soon you don't smile not enough time to worry about it either on to the next thing trying to catch that dollar.
