  • I was young and I was reckless man
    Moved out at seventeen and made my momma mad
    I thought I had it all figured out
    A pocket full of pills and a forty in my mouth
    Peeled out in my big black Chevy
    Flipped it six times and I knew that I was ready
    To straighten up because my best friend died
    I didn't wanna carry on living that life

    And now I'm running from the scene
    'Cause I was caught up in the crime
    It's a loaded memory
    Yeah, it kills me every time
    And I'm trying not to scream but it's eating me alive
    I'm still haunted by the best years of
    The best years of my life

    Yeah, let me take y'all back
    I was young and I was helpless man
    Self medicating my own depression man
    I drank a bottle after breakfast
    Took a look in the mirror ripped the rosary off my necklace
    Damn
    I lost my job so I lost faith
    I just saw a baby bump in my girl's waist
    I need a drink to feel right
    Party with my homies to escape from real life
    Yeah, we had it all figured out
    A pocket full of pills and a forty in my mouth
    But, I never should've let my best friend drive
    'Cause he's the reason my child will never see me alive
    Damn!

    Now I'm running from the scene
    'Cause I was caught up in the crime
    It's a loaded memory
    Yeah, it kills me every time
    And I'm trying not to scream but it's eating me alive
    I'm still haunted by the best years of
    The best years of my life

    All of a sudden nothing matters anymore
    He lost it all, his life was scattered on the floor
    And now his family's tryna pick up all the pieces
    I am locked up in a box, I am a monster
    I'm the reason that he's gone
    Wish I could take it all back
    Press rewind and take a picture of the past
    Pause it, feel my heart turn black
    My lungs are smoldering, I'm breathing in the ash

    Now I'm running from the scene
    'Cause I was caught up in the crime
    It's a loaded memory
    Yeah, it kills me every time
    And I'm trying not to scream but it's eating me alive
    I'm still haunted by the best years of
    The best years of my life

    I'm still haunted by the best years of
    The best years of my life
    I'm still haunted by the best years of Writer/s: Anthony Aaron Esperance, Anthony Esperance, Colin Brittain, Jacoby Dakota Shaddix, Jacoby Shaddix, Nicholas Alex Long, Nicholas Furlong, Nicholas Long, Nicholas Ras Furlong, Richard Baker, Richard Colson Baker, Tobin Esperance, Tobin Joseph Esperance
