Your senior year in high school is supposed to be the best.
However this year is turning out to be one big mess.
Searching for colleges, taking SATs
All this work, oh come on, please.
Why should I study? Why should I try?
Will I ever get by?
My mom says study, my dad says have fun,
But still, my work is not yet done.
Where will I go? What will I be?
What will ever become of me?
No matter where I go, no matter what I find,
My memories of high school will never be far behind.
