I wrote this song when I was 18. I bought the lottery ticket and the cigarettes. I also had a lot of life changing things happen which included starting a relationship with the girl who is now my wife. This song still means so much to me as I face more and more responsibility. I have played this song for a long time. It has not made it into an Aardvark Park set as of yet. -Gerren

Well October came and my the leaves had changed
and everything was different around here. So I decided to
go along and change myself as well.
18 made me a man, I can handle life I swear I can.
Well October came and my age had changed and I bought
myself some cigarettes. I lit one up then I spit it out
cause they killed a man it's hard to live without.
Well October came and I found a girl,
I've been with her ever since. She deserves much more
than me so I try to love her the best I can
And if 18 made me a man, responsibility made me an adult.
