When We Were Young

Album: Young as the Morning, Old as the Sea (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • Passenger wrote this song when he was on holiday in Ibiza, looking out at a beautiful view. He explained to The Sun: "It sounds cheesy, but there was something about my surroundings that brought it out of me. It's a sentiment everyone can relate to and that's all I try to do with songs – say something that everyone feels."
