Freshmen

         I thought I’ll have no blog entry this week but while I was on my way to office, The bus i was riding on played this song while everyone’s quiet and sleepy, I’ve found the lyrics of the song interesting and I knew I’ve heard this song many years ago but only now that I was able to listen to it attentively.

So I’ve searched in the internet and found out the full lyrics of that song entitled “Freshmen” popularized by the Verve, this song was written out the composer’s own experiences. And it might share, remind and warn us of the hurts and pains  brought by permarital sex (unwanted pregnancies), passions expressed in the wrong timing . Listen to this song and read the lyrics below so you would know what I mean.

When I was young I knew everything
And she a punk who rarely ever took advice
Now I’m guilt stricken, sobbin’ with my head on the floor
Stop a Baby’s Breath and a shoe full of rice, no…

I can’t be held responsible
‘Cause she was touching her face
I won’t be held responsible
She fell in love in the first place

For the life of me I cannot remember
What made us think that we were wise and we’d never compromise
For the life of me I cannot believe we’d ever die for these sins
We were merely freshmen

My best friend took a week’s vacation to forget her
His girl took a week’s worth of valium and slept
And now he’s guilt stricken sobbin’ with his head on the floor
Thinks about her now and how he never really wept he says

I can’t be held responsible
‘Cause she was touching her face
I won’t be held responsible
She fell in love in the first place

For the life of me I cannot remember
What made us think that we were wise and we’d never compromise
For the life of me I cannot believe we’d ever die for these sins
We were merely freshmen
hey yay e yay e yay e yay e yay hey yay e yay e

We’ve tried to wash our hands of all of this
We never talk of our lack in relationships
And how we’re guilt stricken sobbin’ with our heads on the floor
We fell through the ice when we tried not to slip, we’d say

I can’t be held responsible
‘Cause she was touching her face
And I won’t be held responsible
She fell in love in the first place

We were merely freshmen
We were only freshmen

             We need people to educate us, guide us, help us and whom we can be accountable with. And being “freshmen” shouldn’t be a “norm-accepted-by-the-public-kinda-culture”, Guilt and shame what Sin always want to offer us. It’s possible to prevent this from happening , Jesus has come  that might have life and have it to the full (John 10:10) Let Jesus be in the center  your relationship, your priority, your first love.

“Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” – Matthew 19:26

Jesus Christ is always there with us and for us. Even if we’ve made mistakes in the past. He will always be there to pick you up. If you to accept Him in your life or know Him more, please see salvation prayer. Thank you and God bless you!
