When We Were Young Lyrics

by Brett Dennen

Remember when we were young
We felt like the luckiest ones
Nothing to worry about
The whole world was a hand-me-down

It's hard to be different
It's even harder when you wanna fit in
High school was a catastrophe
It was a failure factory

Turn it up, turn it up
Turn up your radio loud
Don't forget where you come from
It's too soon to be proud

Remember when
We... were... young
Remember when
We... were... young

Remember when we were broke
Money would come and go
The whole world is a hand-me-down
So you gotta wear it proud

Whenever I reminisce
I know that the greatest risk
Is giving up the fun for pay
I don't want to live that way

Oh tear it up, tear it up
Tear up that page
I don't wanna grow up
I don't wanna act my age

Remember when, we were young

Turn it up, turn it up
Turn up your radio loud
Don't forget where you come from
It's too soon to be proud

Remember when, we were young

Remember when, we were young

Ohhhhhh
Ohhhhh oh oh ohhhhh-oh
Oh oh oh oh oooohhh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh ohhhhh

Ohhhhhh
Ohhhhh oh oh ohhhhh-oh
Oh oh oh oh oooohhh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh ohhhhh

How will I know if I don't ask why
I won't let it pass me by
I see my life in a faded sky
Slippin away, ayyyy ayyyyyy

Tear it up, tear it up
Tear out that page
I don't wanna grow up
Don't wanna act my age

Remember when, we were young

Turn it up, turn it up
Turn up your radio loud
Don't forget where you come from
It's too soon to be proud

Remember when, we were young

Remember when, we were young
