The Freshmen The Verve Pipe / Villains (Written By Brian Vander Ark / 1996 Sid Flips Music/EMI April Music Inc. (ASCAP).) When I was young I knew everything And she a punk who rarely ever took advice Now I'm guilt stricken, sobbing with my head on the floor Stop a baby's breath and a shoe full of rice, no I can't be held responsible Cause she was touching her face I won't be held responsible She fell in love in the first place 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 My best friend took a week's vacation to forget her His girl took a week's worth of valium and slept And now he's guilt stricken, sobbing with his head on the floor Thinks about her now and how he never really wept he says I can't be held responsible Cause she was touching her face I won't be held responsible She fell in love in the first place 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 We've tried to wash our hands of all of this We never talk of our lacking relationships And how we're guilt stricken, sobbing with our heads on the floor We fell through the ice when we tried not to slip, we'd say I can't be held responsible Cause she was touching her face I won't be held responsible She fell in love in the first place 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 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
