When we were young the world was great,
When we were young we were invincible,
When we were young honesty was the only thing we knew,
When we were young people were perfect,
Oh, when we were young.

But now we've grown older,
And now we know,
Now we see the truth,
And wish it weren't so.

Now that we're older the world isn't so great,
Now that we're older we know people get hurt,
Now that we're older lies are easier to speak,
Now that we're older we see the darkness inside,
Oh, now that we're older.

Do you remember when we were young?
When our only wish was to grow up?
Oh, what I'd give to be that young again.
Oh when we were young...
