I have serious problems with our cultures fascination with all things under the age of 25. It got to me when I heard people say "college is the best time of your life." Really? What about after college...am I just waiting to die? I refuse to accept that!!!


No For An Answer
© Seth Irby 2004

It’s OK that I’m fighting
That I’m scrapping tooth and nail
That I’m crying, crying out

It’s OK that I’m begging
That I’m falling on my knees
That I’m letting tears fall down

‘Cause I won’t take no for an answer
No for an answer, No for an answer
Can you keep my heart
From turning black and growing cold?
And I won’t take no for an answer

Don’t tell me that it’s
All down hill from here
Don’t tell me I
Just lay down and die

Don’t tell me that college was
The best time of my life
Tell me there is more
And that it’s worth fighting for

When we were young we had our dreams
But now do they mean anything
Can I keep the light behind my eyes?
Can I go on living until the day I die?
