The Verve Pipe: The Freshman - Analysis


When I was young I knew everything
and she a punk who rarely 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 now

I can\'t be held responsible
cause she was touching her face
I wont be held responsible
she fell in love in the first place

For the life of me I cannot remember
what made up 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 freshman

My best friend took a week\'s
vacation to forget her
his girl took a week\'s worth of
valium and slept
now he\'s guilt stricken sobbing with his
head on the floor
thinks about her now and how he never really
wept he says

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

When you are young you always think, well that would never happen to me . Or
even almost have a view that you were indestructible. You could never die, I am
too young. We have everything worked out, everything planned. This was kind of
the story between this girl and guy. The girl was stubborn and no matter how
many people told her she was wrong in here was, she though she knew everything.
Nothing bad could ever happen to her. She kept doing what she was doing and she
died. The Boyfriend is weeping over her death but convinces himself there was
nothing he could have done. She knew everything and it was her choice, why
would she take anyone\'s advice ? After all she was the one to fall in love. A
week is all it took to get over, but how could everything be going so right then
take a U turn for the worse. Everything was worked out but we can\'t be held
responsible because we were only freshman , young and childish in our ways. It
shows itself in different ways this way just happen to be death.
