I rememberI remember taking long walks in the parkMy friends and I would spend the day bitching and laughingWhen it started to rain, we'd head to someone's houseThose times will always be some of my fondest memoriesI remember spending nights in the local barMy friends and I would drink ourselves silly and forget our worriesLouise would always drink too much and we'd carry her homeThose times will be where I go when I reminisceI remember loafing round the common roomMy friends and I would listen to music and gossip about each otherIt was a guilty pleasure because we should have been doing workThose times are remembered with fondness
Then And NowThen, we would do the same thing every week.Now, I do something different every day.Then, university was something in the distance.Now, it's very real.Then, I was in denial.Now, I accept it.Then, all their worries were my worries too.Now, I couldn't care less.Then, I didn't appriciate what I had.Now, I regret not making the most of it.Then, people were always busy.Now, people are always free.
