Younger

Album: A Great Big World (2018)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • This upbeat synth-pop track finds the A Great Big World duo taking a nostalgic look back at a more innocent time as they wish they were just kids again.

    No shame, no fame, no worries
    The king of wiffle ball
    Without a care at all


    "There's this sense of 'anything is possible,'" A Great Big World's Ian Axel told ABC Radio. "There's this freedom and this fearlessness that we lose as we get older...so when we wrote this song, we were just trying to hang on to that spark."
