about

Back in 2004, I was deep into Charlotte Hatherley's music. This is my riff on her indie pop style.

I think the lyrics speak about the innocence I had back when I was in college. They're mostly inspired by conversations I had with bandmates during those long afternoons we were stuck in university.

lyrics

FOREVER AGO WE SAID WHILE IN COLLEGE

I'm amused to find that we're not through from talkin'
But I refuse to see you fade away
It's so confusin', the 'rents are overbearin'
I watch the news and wish for better days

So I say
It's so unfair
It's oh so
It's so unfair
It's oh so

Should I choose my own accommodation
I'd like it small but completely done my way
I could lose all my hair from all the waitin' so
I won't abuse my body 'til you pay

Forever ago we said while in college
(That life is a miracle)
Forever ago we said while in college
(Our parents are wonderful)
Forever ago we said while in college
(The world is so beautiful)
Forever ago we said while in college
(It's best that we don't know)

I'm amused to find that sex is overrated
But I refuse to see you go your way
If I could choose, Canada is waitin'
But I deduce my salary won't pay

So I say
It's so unfair
It's oh so
It's so unfair
It's oh so

Forever ago we said while in college
(That life is a miracle)
Forever ago we said while in college
(Our parents are wonderful)
Forever ago we said while in college
(The world is so beautiful)
Forever ago we said while in college
(It's best that we don't know)
