  • The world is cracked
    The sky is torn
    I'm hanging in
    You're holding on

    I can't pretend
    That nothing's changed
    Living in the shadows
    Of the love we made

    Back, when we were beautiful
    Before the world got small
    Before we knew it all
    Back, when we were innocent
    I wonder where it went
    Let's go back and find it

    Sha la la, sha la la, hey, sha la la
    Sha la la, sha la la, hey, sha la la

    Some dreams live
    Some will die
    But the you and me
    Is still alive

    Now am I blessed?
    Or am I cursed?
    'Cause the way we are
    Ain't the way we were

    Back, when we were beautiful
    Before the world got small
    Before we knew it all
    Back, when we were innocent
    I wonder where it went
    Let's go back and find it

    The world is cracked
    The sky is torn
    So much less
    Meant so much more

    Back, when we were beautiful
    Before the world got small
    Before we knew it all
    Back, when we were innocent
    I wonder where it went
    Let's go back and find it

    Back, when we were beautiful
    Back, when we were beautiful
    Back, when we were beautiful
    Back, when we were beautiful

    Sha la la, sha la la, hey, sha la la
    Sha la la, sha la la, hey, sha la la

    Sha la la, sha la la, hey, sha la la
    Sha la la, sha la la, hey, sha la la Writer/s: BILLY FALCON, JON BON JOVI, RICHIE SAMBORA
