WHEN WE WERE YOUNGER Am I too young to be nostalgic? After all I often feel like I'm the oldest person here Am I too young for this rhetoric? After all I always was a little older than my years Am I too old to ride the rollercoaster? Give me a break, I'm just tryin to have some fun Am I supposed to be a grown-up now? Well, I can't shake the feeling that my life has just begun But when we were younger everything was stronger The sun, the beer, the rock'n roll, The techno beats and the sudden love The days were short, but the nights were longer When we were younger Am I too old for this haircut? Does my face look really wrinkly when you see it in the light? I took a look at the starts the other night and then my future, and it didn't shine as bright Am I the only thing that matters to you? Of course I'm not, yeah you said that, but you lied You lied And when we were younger everything was stronger The sun, the beer, the rock'n roll, The techno beats and the sudden love The days were short, but the nights were longer When we were younger The stars, the stars don't spell my name And I'm stuck with that song I never made And it makes me wanna quit the whole charade But you hold me, hold me up to the standards of my youth and of my age And you know that all my joy and all my rage will not allow me to behave Oh, when we were younger everything was stronger The sun, the beer, the rock'n roll, The techno beats and the sudden love The nights were longer When we were younger everything was stronger The love we built was concrete, then It's rubber now; it don't break, it bends But maybe it's stronger Than when we were younger
