Night Before Graduation…

And I’m already feeling the bittersweet feeling rush all over my body. It’s time to graduate, but it will be tough leaving behind all the relationships that were established over the years. Hell, it’s going to be tough leaving the safe haven that is Woodinville. I find it funny that as I am moving forward, I am looking back in time to convey my emotions. And so I return back to the Strokes, the very first band I truly loved. Their first album Is This It? was a treat for the ears, but upon returning to the album as a senior about to graduate, the lyrics just spoke to me. Oh hell, it causes the paradox of making me yearn for the “good old days” but at the same time make me anticipate what the future has to hold.

 

The lyrics really articulate what I’m feeling right now. A toast to a year done, a toast for memories to come.

 

In many ways, they’ll miss the good old days
Someday, someday
Yeah, it hurts to say, but I want you to stay
Sometimes, sometimes

When we was young, oh man, did we have fun
Always, always
Promises, they break before they’re made
Sometimes, sometimes

Oh, my ex says I’m lacking in depth
I will do my best
You say you wanna stay by my side
Darlin’, your head’s not right
See, alone we stand, together we fall apart
Yeah, I think I’ll be alright
I’m working so I won’t have to try so hard
Tables, they turn sometimes

Oh, someday…

No, I ain’t wastin’ no more time

And now my fears
They come to me in threes
So, I
Sometimes
Say, “Fate my friend,
You say the strangest things
I find, sometimes”

 

Oh, My ex says I’m lacking in depth
Say I will try my best
You say you wanna stay by my side
Darlin’, your head’s not right
See, alone we stand, together we fall apart
Yeah, I think I’ll be alright
I’m working so I won’t have to try so hard
Tables, they turn sometimes

Oh, someday…

I ain’t wasting no more time

 

“Someday”

 

Off to a new point in my life!
