When we were young the world seemed so old
Careless and cold
We did what we were told in our lives
When we were young
Had the world by the tail
Good would prevail
Starships at sail
And none of us would fail in this life
Not when you're young

We were drawn to whoever could keep us together
And bound by the heavens above
And we tried to survive traveling at the speed of love

Woah when we were young
When we adored the fabulous
Woah when we were young
We were the foolish fearless
Never knowing the cost of what we paid
Letting someone else be strong
Woah when we were young

In a moment of grace
A long leap of faith
The still more glorious dawn awaits
It's my life
I'm here with the lovers

And we burned the bridges
We're crossing over
Just to see the firelight
And the innocent are getting over
Being old tonight

Woah when we were young
When everything was what it seemed
Woah when we were young
And everyday was how we dreamed
Never knowing the cost of what we paid
Letting someone else be strong
Woah when we were young

And when you look at yourself tonight
Are you someone you recognize?
You can take back what you've given away
But it must be the last time

Woah when we were young
Woah when we were young
When we were young

Woah when we were young
When we adored the fabulous
Woah when we were young
We were the foolish fearless
Woah when we were young
We didn't know it wouldn't last
Woah when we were young
