Green Day - Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)



Lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong wrote this song when his girlfriend moved to Ecuador to live with her family and continue her schooling. He tried to be levelheaded about it, but to show his anger, he named the song "Good Riddance" and made "Time Of Your Life" the subtitle.


"It's about trying to be cool, accepting that, in life, people go in different directions. People come into your life and it's wonderful, but they seem to go out of your life as quickly as they came in."



Lyrics


Fuck...



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


It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time



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


Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time


Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial


For what it's worth it was worth all the while



It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right


I hope you had the time of your life



It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right


I hope you had the time of your life



It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right


I hope you had the time of your life
