Were We Wild And Young?

When we were 16, my friend wrote on her LiveJournal, "I shouldn't be sad. My boyfriend's awesome and the Sox are winning." I doubt she remembers the day or why she was blue. The journal has been deleted, but that line has always stuck with me. And perhaps high schoolers can be myopic and immature, but sometimes they're more keen than any of us could dream to be.
I don't remember, were we wild and young?
All that's faded into memory.
I feel like somebody I don't know.
Are we really who we used to be?
Am I really who I was?

The lights will draw you in,
and the dark will bring you down.
And the night will break your heart
only if you're lucky now.
