Green Day - Good Riddance


Another turning point a fork stuck in the road.
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go.
So make the best of this test and don't ask why.
Its not a question but a lesson learned in time.

(Chorus)
It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

So take the photographs and still frames in your mind.
Hanging on a shelf in health and good time.
Tatooes and memories and asking on trial.
For what it's worth, it was worth all the while.
(Chorus)
(Musical Solo)
(Chorus) X2

        Here's what I get out of this song.  It seems to me that that Billy Joe has somehow had an abrupt discourse in his life (Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go), causing him to have to leave something or someone important in his life.  He is basically saying that he hopes this person will always remember him(So take the photographs and still frames in your mind).
