These lyrics were written on May 15, 2013, the night before TCNJ graduation.

lyrics

Don’t we all look pretty in our cap & gown?
It don’t mean much to me right now
But sure did make my mama proud
And my father said to me,
He said, “This world is in your hands”
But I can’t fight it
I’ll never live up to grandeur that they think I can

But simple words struggle to say
Regrets are how we got this way
A chapter lost and gone
As I found, I found where I belonged

Don’t we all look pretty in our cap & gown?
I had all of these great big dreams
But myself, I shot them down
Because there isn’t time
For all of the things we want in this
And by the time my mind’s made up
I’ll have surely missed my ideal tryst

But simple words struggle to say
Regrets are how we got this way
Wasted pages, nightly rages
All gone in one day?

We forgot the power in our past
We lost the hours that went so fast
With brutal lessons and harsher themes
We finally found what it all means
This thing called growing up
Isn’t always all that it’s supposed to be

They offered me four years to finally find my fit
But high and mighty at seventeen and I couldn’t handle it
Someone tell me for all the work, what it is I have to show?
I’m unemployed, I’m miserable and worst of all I’m alone
Worst of all...

Simple words struggle to say
Regrets are how we got this way
A chapter lost and gone
As I found, I found, I found...

We forgot the power in our past
We lost the hours that went so fast
With brutal lessons and harsher themes
We finally found what it all means
This thing called growing up
Isn’t always all that it’s supposed to be
That it’s supposed to be
