John Jenkins – Songs From My Front Room # 14 – Christopher Roberts

I wrote this in the last few weeks as part of the “Talent is Timeless” monthly challenge.

This months challenge was to write a song about “passages”, one take on it for me was the “passing of time”. Christopher Roberts was a junior school friend I had. Me him, Mike Norton and Philip Martin for some reason, now lost in the midst of time, were taken out of the boys part of our classroom and stuck with the girls on the other side of the room.

We bonded well because of this and Chris was a good friend but being in a catholic school and doing our 11 plus exams all of us ended up in different senior schools. I never saw him again and cant remember which school he went to such is life.

I’ve decided to reintroduce my “Songs from my Front Room” videos and songs although as you can see I did this in the garden being such a beautiful day and all.

Hope you like the song – Its all true.

Christopher Roberts

We were so young, A little wet behind the ears

Laughing crying, Whatever happened to all those years?

A photograph, memories

Kids in a schoolyard Dirty faces sore knees

And did you ever imagine How life would turn out to be?

All of those dreams we hoped for

Did they become a reality?

 

We were stupid Exchanging comics, Marvel, and DC

Bursting tar bubbles Scrubbing our hands with margarine

Painted my face the brightest blue

Christopher Roberts I often wonder what happened to you

And did you ever imagine you’d live to be 63?

Christopher Roberts – Where can you be?

And did you ever imagine

How life would turn out to be?

All of those dreams we hoped for

Did they become a reality?

We were so young, A little wet behind the ears
