When We Were Young

Album: Young as the Morning, Old as the Sea (2016)
  • We used to never say never
    Used to think we live forever
    Flying free beneath the sun
    Days go running and hiding
    The weeks are going slippy and sliding
    Years leave quicker every time they come

    Remember when we were young

    Look back to the best of days
    Collecting all yesterdays
    As they built up one by one

    Oh how we beg and we borrow
    Say we do it tomorrow
    But tomorrow never seems to come

    We used to never say never
    Used to think we live forever
    Flying free beneath the sun
    Days go running and hiding
    The weeks are going slippy and sliding
    Years leave quicker every time they come

    Remember when we were young

    And we were boys on the beach
    Everything was in reach
    I know it's hard to remember
    And all had the years they vanish
    I always wanted to learn Spanish
    And travel round South-America

    We used to never say never
    Used to think we live forever
    Flying free beneath the sun
    Days go running and hiding
    The weeks are going slippy and sliding
    Years leave quicker every time they come

    Do you remember when we were young?

    We used to never say never
    Used to think we live forever
    Flying free beneath the sun
    Days go running and hiding
    The weeks are going slippy and sliding yeah
    Years leave quicker every time they come

    Do you remember when we were young?

    Do you remember when we were young?
    Do you remember when we were young?
    Do you remember when we were young? Writer/s: MICHAEL DAVID ROSENBERG
