    This one should be pretty simple! Post your graduation song along with the lyrics!

    Mine was Soco Arametto Lime by Brand New. Sad story, actually... I was in a band with 2 of my closest friends ever; Vance and David. I love these guys so much. Well we were all supposed to play our graduation song during graduation. Well, I made the stupid choice of breaking into the school the night before and got caught. I got to graduate but I didn't get to play the song with them. It felt so wrong to be sitting back while they played the song and they said it felt wrong for not to be there. Sometimes I wish I could go back and change it all.

    I'm gonna watch this thread closely. I wanna see what your songs were. I also wanna see how many had Good Riddance by Green Day! =P

    This song touches me. I bolded the parts...


    Passed out on the overpass
    Sunday best and broken glass
    Broken down from the bikes and bars
    Suspended like spirits over speeding cars
    You and me were kings over the parkway tonight
    And tonight will go on forever while we
    walk around this town like we own the streets
    and stay awake through summer like we own the heat
    Singing "everybody wake up(wake up)it's time to get down"

    (everybody, everybody wake up its time to get down)
    And when I pass the bottle back to Pete
    on the overpass tonight, I bet we laugh

    I'm gonna stay eighteen forever
    So we can stay like this forever
    And we'll never miss a party
    cause we keep them going constantly
    And we'll never have to listen
    to anyone about anything
    cause it's all been done and it's all been said
    we're the coolest kids and we take what we can get


    The hell out of this town
    Find some conversation
    The low fuel lights been on for days
    It doesn't mean anything
    I've got another 500 another 500 miles
    before we shut this engine down,
    we shut it down

    I'm gonna stay eighteen forever (cut me open)
    So we can stay like this forever (sun poisoned)
    And we'll never miss a party (this offer stands forever)
    cause we keep them going constantly
    And we'll never have to listen (new haircut)
    to anyone about anything (new bracelet)
    cause it's all been done and it's all been said (eyeliner)
    we're the coolest kids and we take what we can get (wait forever)

    (you're just jealous cause I'm young and in love)
    Eighteen forever
    (your stomachs filled up but you're starved for conversation)
    So we can stay like this forever
    (you're spending all your nights growing old in your bed)
    And we'll never miss a party
    (and your tearing up your photos cause you wanna forget... it's over)
    cause we keep them going constantly
    (you're just jealous cause I'm young and in love)
    And we'll never have to listen
    (your stomachs filled up but you're starved for conversation)
    to anyone about anything cause it's all been done
    (you're spending all your nights growing old in your bed)
    and it's all been said
    (and your tearing up your photos cause you wanna forget... it's over)
    we're the coolest kids and we take what we can get

    Just jealous cause we're young and in love
    You're just jealous cause we're young and in love
    You're just jealous cause we're young and in love
    You're just jealous cause we're young and in love
    You're just jealous cause we're young and in love
    You're just jealous cause we're young and in love

    Good Riddance by Green Day's one of the first songs I learnt to strum on acoustics =)

    Here's our graduation song =)

    "Graduation (Friends Forever)" by Vitamin C:):nod:

    And so we talked all night about the rest of our lives
    Where we're gonna be when we turn 25
    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 blue
    Stay at home talking on the telephone
    And we would get so excitedand we'd get so scared
    Laughing at ourselves thinking life's not fair
    And this is how it feels

    [1]
    As we go on
    We remember
    All the times we
    Had together
    And as our lives change
    From 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, keep thinking that it's not goodbye
    Keep on thinking it's a time to fly
    And this is how it feels

    [Repeat 1]

    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?
    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, keep thinking that it's not goodbye
    Keep on thinking it's a time to fly

    [Repeat 1 (3x)]

    p/s: by the way, nice graduation song Scissorhands;)

    I as hell don't know to be honest. I remember that it was "Happy Days" when we were coming out, not sure what song it was during the ceremony.

    Green Day's Time of Your Life



    Another turning point;
    a fork stuck in the road.

    Time grabs you by the wrist;
    directs you where to go.

    So make the best of this test
    and don't ask why.

    It's not a question
    but a lesson learned in time.

    It's something unpredictable
    but in the end it's right.
    I hope you had the time of your life.

    So take the photographs
    and still frames in your mind.

    Hang it on a shelf
    In good health and good time.

    Tattoos of memories
    and dead skin on trial.

    For what it's worth,
    it was worth all the while.

    It's something unpredictable
    but in the end it's right.
    I hope you had the time of your life.

    (music break)

    It's something unpredictable
    but in the end it's right.
    I hope you had the time of your life.

    It's something unpredictable
    but in the end it's right.
    I hope you had the time of your life.

    Is it like a standard thing to always play Good Riddance at the graduation? I know it makes alot of sense, but man change it up ya know.

    I think the song just came out when I graduated, so my class did it before it was cool. :) Or so I'd like to tell myself.

    Haha, I'm talking about any graduations from early 2000's onwards, it just seems like a trend to play Good Riddance...it's too predictable.
