Your Freshman Year

You were an eager beaver during your freshman year
Ready for the good times, wrapped up in fear
It was a time of change, it was a time to explore
It was a time to open every metaphorical door
A door of experience, a door of new romance
A door of truth during your first dance
You had to study but you wanted to play
During your freshman year, you lived day after day

Bridge 1

With goals in your heart and large lust in your soul
A night with someone you liked and you lost all control
You were slightly derailed by this new love you found
So much so you couldn’t focus when they were around

Chorus 1

Stars were in his eyes, you longed to touch
That guy, that crush you wanted so much
During your freshman year
And oh, you look back on it now
Now that you’ve got a man of your own
And oh, the many mistakes you made
All the ones that made you feel so alone
The ones that show you how much you’ve grown
You see it in him when he doesn’t want to hear
What you went through during your freshman year
What you went through during your freshman year

Verse 2

You played football, baseball or ran in track
Thought your buddy was loyal to you behind your back
You caught him with that girl you pined for
It was there you had to slam that metaphorical door
That door called experience, that door of new romance
That door filled with truth during your first dance
You decided to study instead of going out to play
during your freshman year, you lived day after day

Bridge 2

With goals in your heart and spite in your soul
All because someone you liked lost their self-control
You were slightly derailed by this new boy she found
But then you would focus when you got off the ground

Chorus 2

Stars were in her eyes, you longed to touch
That girl, that crush you wanted so much
During your freshman year
And oh, you look back on it now
Now you’ve got a teen son of your own
And oh, you see the mistakes you made
All the ones that made you feel so alone
The ones showing you how much you’ve grown
You see it in him when he doesn’t want to hear
What you went through during your freshman year
What you went through during your freshman year

Back to Chorus 1 then end.
