Kids In Love

Album: Anywhere But Here (2010)
  • I look back to the one and only summer time
    And my girl was the envy of every friend of mine
    She slept safely in my arms
    We were so young and invincible

    Closed lips, she was never one to kiss and tell
    Those trips in the summer never went so well
    Young love was such dumb love
    Call it what you want it was still enough

    And you're still out of my reach
    And you're still all of the things
    That I want in my life
    How could I ask you to leave me?

    And we were just kids in love
    The summer was full of mistakes we wouldn't learn from
    The first kiss stole the breath from my lips
    Why did the last one tear us apart?

    Our breath smelled of cigarettes and alcohol
    We'd walk down the beach counting every star
    Our hearts beat inside our chest
    Leaving us gasping for every breath

    Her smile with the wind blowing through her hair
    Was so contagious in the air
    So satisfying and I'm still smiling

    And you're still out of my reach
    And you're still all of the things
    That I want in my life
    How could I ask you to leave me?


    And we were just kids in love
    The summer was full of mistakes we wouldn't learn from
    The first kiss stole the breath from my lips
    Why did the last one tear us apart

    We're falling down, can we pick up the pieces?
    We're at an all time low, how do we get it back?
    We're falling down, can we pick up the pieces?

    We're falling down, can we pick up the pieces now?

    And we were just kids in love
    The summer was full of mistakes we wouldn't learn from
    The first kiss stole the breath from my lips
    Why did the last one tear us

    We were just kids in love
    The summer was full of mistakes we wouldn't learn from
    The first kiss stole the breath from my lips
    Why did the last one tear us apart?

    We were just kids in love
    The summer was full of mistakes we wouldn't learn from
    The first kiss stole the breath from my lips
    Why did the last one tare us apart? Writer/s: GREGG WATTENBERG, WRITER UNKNOWN
