Some are still getting their masters, married, baby making, single, etc. Im hoping that someone knows of a great song to bring all of us together to remember our fun younger days! Thank you and I apprechiate it!

There´s also "Bob Dylan´s Dream"

While ridin' on a train goin' west

I fell asleep for to take my rest.

I dreamed a dream that made me sad

Concernin' myself an' the first few friends i had.

With half damp eyes i stared to the room

Where my friends an' i spent many an afternoon.

Where we together weathered many a storm

Laughin' an' singin' till the early hours of the morn.

By the old wooden stove where our hats was hung

Our words was told, our songs was sung

Where we longed for nothin' an' were satisfied

Jokin' an' talkin' about the world outside.

With hungry hearts thru the heat an' cold

We never much thought we could get very old

We thought we could sit forever in fun

An' our chances really was a million to one.

As easy it was to tell black from white

It was all that easy to tell wrong from right

An' our choices they was few so the thoughts never hit

That the one road we travelled would ever shatter or split.

How many a year has passed an' gone

Many a gamble has been lost an' won

An' many a road taken by many a first friend

An' each one i've never seen again.

I wish, i wish, i wish in vain

That we could sit simply in that room again

Ten thousand dollars at the drop of a hat

I'd give it all gladly if our lives could be like that.  

Welcome! ;)

In My Life ~ Beatles

There are places I remember

All my life, though some have changed

Some forever not for better

Some have gone and some remain

All these places have their moments

With lovers and friends I still can recall

Some are dead and some are living

In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers

There is no one compares with you

And these memories lose their meaning

When I think of love as something new

Though I know I'll never lose affection

For people and things that went before

I know I'll often stop and think about them

In my life, I love you more

(Instrumental)

Though I know I'll never lose affection

For people and things that went before

I know I'll often stop and think about them

In my life, I love you more

In my life, I love you more

"Lather" - Jefferson Airplane

Lather was thirty years old today,

They took away all of his toys.

His mother sent newspaper clippings to him,

About his old friends who'd stopped being boys.

There was Harwitz E. Green, just turned thirty-three,

His leather chair waits at the bank.

And Sergeant Dow Jones, twenty-seven years old,

Commanding his very own tank.

But Lather still finds it a nice thing to do,

To lie about nude in the sand,

Drawing pictures of mountains that look like bumps,

And thrashing the air with his hands.

But wait, oh Lather's productive you know,

He produces the finest of sound,

Putting drumsticks on either side of his nose,

Snorting the best licks in town,

But that's all over...

Lather was thirty years old today,

And Lather came foam from his tongue.

He looked at me eyes wide and plainly said,

Is it true that I'm no longer young?

And the children call him famous,

what the old men call insane,

And sometimes he's so nameless,

That he hardly knows which game to play...

Which words to say...

And I should have told him, "No, you're not old."

And I should have let him go on...smiling...baby-wide.
