Green Day I was there Lyrics

Last updated: 05/03/2010 11:00:00 AM

Looking back upon my life
And the places that I've been
Pictures, faces, girls I've loved
I try to remember when
Faded memories on the wall
Some names I have forgotten
But each one is a memory I
Look back on so often.

I look into the past
I want to make it last
I was there
I was there
I look into the past
I want to make it last
I was there
I was there

Looking back what I have done
There's lots more life to live
At times I feel overwhelmed
I question what I can give
But I don't let it get me down
Or cause me too much sorrow
There's no doubt about who I am
I always have tomorrow

I look into the past
I want to make it last
I was there
I was there
I look into the past
I want to make it last
I was there
I was there

Looking back upon my life (upon my life)
Faded memories on the wall (faded memories on the walls)
Looking now at who I am (who am I?)
I don't let it get me down. (No, I don't let it get me down!)

Looking back upon my life
And the places that I've been
Pictures, faces, girls I've loved
I try to remember when
But I don't let it get me down
Or cause me too much sorrow
There's no doubt about who I am
I always have tomorrow

I look into the past
I want to make it last
I was there
I was there
I look into the past
I want to make it last
I was there
I was there

Beautiful. | Reviewer: Lisa | 4/29/10

I think this song is really pretty. Didn't John Kiffmeyer (or Al Sobrante) write this when he was still in the band? This is a really good song. I think he knew he was leaving when he wrote it, but he wanted to state that he was there, and that he was the drummer in Green Day's evolving stages. This song (and the whole 39/Smooth album) are really cool! I highly recommend them both!!!
