Graduation (Friends Forever)

  • And so we talked all night about the rest of our lives
    Where we're gonna be when we turn twenty five
    I keep thinking times will never change
    Keep on thinking things will always be the same
    But when we leave this year, we won't be coming back
    No more hanging out 'cause we're on a different track
    And if you got something that you need to say
    You better say it right now 'cause you don't have another day
    Cause we're moving on and we can't slow down
    These memories are playing like a film without sound
    And I keep thinking of that night in June
    I didn't know much of love
    But it came too soon
    And there was me and you
    And then we got real cool
    Stay at home talking on the telephone with me
    We'd get so excited, we'd get so scared
    Laughing at ourselves thinking life's not fair
    And this is how it feels

    As we go on
    We remember
    All the times we
    Had together
    And as our lives change
    Come whatever
    We will still be
    Friends forever

    So if we get the big jobs
    And we make the big money
    When we look back now
    Will our jokes still be funny?
    Will we still remember everything we learned in school
    Still be trying to break every single rule?
    Will little brainy Bobby be the stockbroker man?
    Can Heather find a job that won't interfere with her tan?
    I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye
    Keep on thinking it's a time to fly
    And this is how it feels

    As we go on
    We remember
    All the times we
    Had together
    And as our lives change
    Come whatever
    We will still be
    Friends forever

    La, la, la, la
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    La, la, la, la
    We will still be friends forever

    Will we think about tomorrow like we think about now?
    Can we survive it out there?
    Can we make it somehow (somehow)?
    I guess I thought that this would never end
    And suddenly it's like we're women and men
    Will the past be a shadow that will follow us 'round?
    Will these memories fade when I leave this town
    I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye
    Keep on thinking it's a time to fly

    As we go on
    We remember
    All the times we
    Had together
    And as our lives change
    Come whatever
    We will still be
    Friends forever

    As we go on
    We remember
    All the times we
    Had together
    And as our lives change
    Come whatever
    We will still be
    Friends forever

    As we go on
    We remember
    All the times we
    Had together
    And as our lives change
    Come whatever
    We will still be
    Friends foreverWriter/s: Josh Deutsch, Colleen Fitzpatrick
