Story of my lifeWell, high school seemed like such a blurI didn"t have much interest in sports or school electionsAnd in class I dreamed all dayAbout a rock "n" roll weekendAnd the girl in the front of the roomSo close yet so far, you know she never seemed to noticeThat this silly school-boy crush wasn"t just pretendLife goes by so fastYou only want to do what you think is rightClose your eyes and then it"s pastStory of my lifeStory of my lifeStory of my lifeThe story of my lifeAnd I went down to my old neighborhoodThe faces have all changed, there"s no one there left to talk toAnd the pool hall I loved as a kidIs now a Seven ElevenAnd I went downtown to look for a jobI had no training, no experience to speak ofAnd I looked at the holes in my jeansAnd turned and headed backLife goes by so fastYou only wanna do what you think is rightClose your eyes and it"s pastStory of my lifeStory of my lifeStory of my lifeStory of my lifeAnd good times come and good times goI only wish the good times would last a little longerAnd I think about the good times we hadAnd why they had to endSo I sit at the edge of my bedI strum my guitar and I sing an outlaw love songThinkin" "bout what you"re doin" nowAnd when you"re comin" backLife goes by so fastYou only wanna do what you think is rightClose your eyes and it"s pastStory of my lifeStory of my lifeStory of my lifeStory of my lifeStory of my lifeThe story of my life
