  • Do you remember when we moved out?
    My mum said, "I love you, but it's a small house"
    So we changed up and saved up
    Gave up our town
    We were dangerous, couldn't tame us
    What's missing now?

    Time
    Suddenly, we got no time
    We're so busy doing life
    That I miss your eyes on mine, mine

    If you'd just focus on me
    Like we were sixteen
    And planning our lives
    Can I wear your t-shirt
    And sleep on you
    While I dream of all the good times?
    When we were sixteen

    Like we were sixteen
    Like we were sixteen

    Do you remember the teacher said
    "You're too young, too stupid, don't lose your head"
    But years gone and we held on with the best intent
    Just two kids who kicked it on MSN

    Oh, time
    Suddenly, we got no time
    We're so busy doing life
    That I miss your eyes on mine, mine

    Oh, if you just focus on me
    Like we were sixteen
    And plotting our lives (When we were plotting our lives)
    Can I wear your t-shirt
    And sleep on you
    While I dream of all the good times?
    When we were sixteen

    Like we were sixteen
    Like we were sixteen

    Let's take the love that we found
    And give it back to ourselves
    Sometimes these things don't work out
    Sometimes there'll be no one else
    They said we'd never even make it this far
    But here we are
    And we're still counting stars
    Like we were sixteen

    Oh, when we were sixteen
    We're still counting stars like we were sixteen
    We're still counting stars like we were sixteen Writer/s: Elena Jane Goulding, Frederick John Philip Gibson, Joseph Bryn Kearns, Rachel Agatha Keen
