Verse 1

F#m E
Here in this diary,
A D F#m E
I write you visions of my summer.
D
It was the best I ever had.

There were choruses and sing-alongs,
A D
and that unspoken feeling.
F#m E D
Of knowing that right now is all that matters.
F#m E A
All the nights we stayed up talking
D F#m E
and listening to 80?s songs;
D F#m
quoting lines from all those movies that we love.
E A D F#m E D
It still brings a smile to my face.
Bm D
I guess when it comes down to it…

Chorus

F#m E A D
Being grown up isn’t half as fun as growing up
F#m E D
These are the best days of our lives.
F#m E
The only thing that matters
A D
is just following your heart
F#m E D
and eventually you’ll finally get it right.

Verse 2

F#m E
Breaking into hotel swimming pools,
A D
and wreaking havoc on our world.

Hanging out at truck stops just to pass the time.
F#m E A D F#m E D
The black top’s singing me to sleep.
F#m E
Lighting fireworks in parking lots,
A D
illuminate the blackest nights.

Cherry cokes under this moonlight summer sky.

2015 Riverside, it’s time to say, ‘goodbye.’

acoustic)
