[the best days]

One of me old mates died
Actually he topped himself
But his dying changed nowt
The other lads will just forget him
I’ll forget him too
I looked for a photo so I could see his face
But there weren’t any
I thought he was me special mate
Sooner or later I’ll be gone too
It made me want to take photographs

Then I realised

We’re shit
But champions
As long as we live we’ll boast about this
What on earth were we thinking
But those days with the lads
And those days I spent wasthing time
Were the best days of my life
His death showed me how to live
I should have realised sooner
Maybe its too late
Now though
My Youth, Act Two begins
A better life
