  • Life after youth
    Faded in twilight
    The dawn of a criminal in bloom
    First love
    First forgiveness
    We were delinquents
    Freaks of a faded memory

    Outlaws, when we were forever young
    When we were outlaws
    We're outlaws of redemption, baby
    Hooligans
    We destroyed suburbia
    When we were outlaws
    Outlaws of forever

    Scars, broken hearts
    Breaking in cars
    Running in the light of the moon
    Lost souls
    Bottle rockets
    All that we wanted
    It's for our life beyond the stars

    Outlaws, when we were forever young
    When we were outlaws
    We're outlaws of redemption, baby
    Hooligans
    We destroyed suburbia
    When we were outlaws
    We're outlaws of forever, baby

    I've got no supervision
    Nothing will change my spirit
    Race around
    I'll plead my innocence
    I'll plead my innocence
    But that's my best defense when you are young

    Outlaws, when we were forever young
    When we were outlaws
    We're outlaws of redemption, baby
    Hooligans
    We destroyed suburbia
    When we were outlaws
    We're outlaws of forever

    I found a knife by the railroad track
    You took a train and you can't go back
    Forever now, forever now you'll roam Writer/s: BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG, FRANK EDWIN WRIGHT III, JOHN PAUL LAWLER, MIKE RYAN PRITCHARD
