The Freshmen by The Verve Pipe, although one of my old favorites, is one of the saddest songs for me. I love the wistfulness in the tune and I sometimes find myself singing the chorus. But every time I listen to the song, it makes me wish the baby’s breath didn’t stop, the best friend never took a week’s vacation to forget her and the girl never took a week’s worth of valium and slept. ;-( Sad, huh?
For the life of me I cannot remember
What made us think that we were wise and
We’d never compromise
For the life of me I cannot believe
We’d ever die for these sins
We were merely freshmen
