When I Was Young

Album: When I Was Young (2017)
  • When the sky was gold
    And I needed no protection
    But as the wind would blow
    A thousand miles in no direction
    Man, it was a beautiful sight
    Days were soaked in sunlight
    Just so long ago
    But lately I like to imagine

    When I was young
    Whatever happened it would do me no wrong
    As long as I could sing my favorite song
    When I was young, oh
    And the holidays went on and on
    We were so high
    Let the freeway take us into the night
    And in the dark you sang my favorite song
    When I was young, oh
    And the holidays went on and on
    And on, and on, and on
    When I was young (Woo!)

    Now the sky is gray
    But honestly, it doesn't hurt me (No)
    I learned to find my way
    On the path and no returnin' oh, oh
    Everything I've left behind
    I'm reminded every time I meet your eyes
    We were so bold and brave
    Baby, can you imagine?

    When I was young
    Whatever happened it would do me no wrong
    As long as I could sing my favorite song
    When I was young, oh
    And the holidays went on and on
    We were so high
    Let the freeway take us into the night
    And in the dark you sang my favorite song
    When I was young, oh
    And the holidays went on and on
    And on, and on, and on
    When I was young (Woo!)

    When I was young
    We would play with fire
    When I was young
    And we would fuck the price
    When I was young
    It was do or die
    I would give my life just to feel like
    When I was young

    Oh oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh oh
    (Oh, do or die)
    When I was young
    Do me no wrong
    We were so high
    Oh, and the holidays went on and on
    And on, and on, and on
    When I was young Writer/s: Ronni Vindahl, Daniel Mizrahi, James Allan, Grant Harris, Albin Nedler, Kristoffer Fogelmark, Karen Marie Ørsted
