When I Was Young Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

The rooms were so much colder then
My father was a soldier then
And times were very hard
When I was young
When I was young

Smoked my first cigarette at ten
And for girls, I had a bad yen
Life meant so much more
When I was young
When I was young

When I was young, it was more important
Pain more painful, the laughter much louder, yeah
When I was young
When I was young

Don't you know, I met my first love at thirteen?
She was brown, and I was pretty green
I learned so very much
When I was young
When I was young

Love, my love, my love
Love, my love
Love, my love
Yeah, yeah

When I was young, it was more important
Pain more painful, laughter much louder, yeah
When I was young
When I was a baby

My faith was so much stronger then
I believed in my fellow men
I was really so much older then
When I was young
When I was young

When I was a baby, baby, baby, love
When I [Incomprehensible], yeah
Just got to [Incomprehensible] with no shoes
[Incomprehensible], oh love

When I was young
When I was young
When I was young
When I was a baby, baby, baby, oh love
When I was young
When I was young
When I was young, yeah
