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, About 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. chorus: Life goes by so fast, you only want to do what you think is right. Close your eyes and then it's past; (It's the) 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 Seven Eleven. 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. chorus: Life goes by so fast, you only want to do what you think is right. Close your eyes and then it's past; (It's the) 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. Wonderin' bout what you're doin' now And when you're comin' back.
