  • Days when
    We'd fight, we'd fight 'til I would give in
    Yeah, perfect disasters
    We were reaching, reaching for the rafters, eh ey

    And on most of the days we were searching for ways
    To get up and get out of the town that we were raised, yeah, 'cause we were done
    I remember, we were sleeping in cars
    We were searching for OZ
    We were burning cigars
    With white plastics tips 'til we saw the sun
    And we said crazy things like

    I refuse to look back thinking days were better
    Just because they're younger days
    I don't know what's 'round the corner
    Way I feel right now I swear we'll never change
    Back when we were kids
    Swore we would never die
    You and me were kids
    Swear that we'll never die

    Lights down
    And we drive and we're drivin' just to get out
    Yeah, perfect disasters
    Yeah, we were swinging, swinging from the rafters, hey ey

    We were dancing in cars
    We were looking for ours
    We were naming the stars
    After people we knew 'til we had to go
    And we were saying things like

    I refuse to look back thinking days were better
    Just because they're younger days
    I don't know what's 'round the corner
    Way I feel right now I swear we'll never change
    Back when we were kids
    Swore we would never die
    You and me were kids
    Swear that we'll never die

    Nights when we kept dancing
    Changing all our plans and
    Making every day a holiday
    Feel the years start burning
    City lights they're turning
    Something 'bout this feels the same

    Back when we were kids
    Swore we would never die
    You and me were kids
    Swear that we'll never die
    I refuse to look back thinking days were better
    Just because they're younger days
    I don't know what's 'round the corner
    Way I feel right now I swear we'll never change

    You and me were kids Writer/s: RYAN TEDDER, BRANDON COLLINS, BRENT KUTZLE, STEVE WILMOT
