"In This Diary" - Lyrics and Music: Kristopher Roe

Here in this diary I write you visions of my summer,
It was the best I ever had.
There were choruses and sing alongs
And that unspoken feeling of knowing
That right now is all that matters.

All those nights we stayed up talking
Listening to 80's songs
And quoting lines from all those movies that we loved
It still brings a smile to my face.

I guess when it comes down to it...

Being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up
These are the best days of our lives.
The only thing that matters is just following your heart
And eventually you'll finally get it right.

Breaking into hotel swimming pools
And wreaking havoc on our world,
Hanging out at truck stops
Just to pass the time.
The blacktop singing me to sleep.

Lighting fireworks in parking lots
Illuminate the blackest nights
Cherry cokes under this moonlit'summer sky.
2015 Riverside, it's time to say goodbye!

Get on the bus, it's time to go.

Being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up
These are the best days of our lives.
The only thing that matters is just following your heart
And eventually you'll finally get it right.
