Do you remember when we were free?
We pranced around on the velvety grass
Dozed under the great birch tree
Enjoying the breeze as we did a little dance
Long ago, we were unbound
Without a care in the world
Together we visited playgrounds all around
On the roundabout we used to twirl!
But then we reminisced about those days
Staring down at our answer scripts in distaste
We once didn’t have to worry about 1000-word essays
Can’t help but feel it was such a waste
We thought adulthood meant we’d be free
But after growing up we could both safely say:
’Adulthood really isn’t my cup of tea
All I look forward to is my payday...′
But as the sun set “we” became “I”
Why hadn’t I talked more to you...
When did all my plans go awry
My sorrow and anguish grew and grew
‘grew and grew’
i wish we didn’t, though.
weren’t we supposed to stay young forever?
