When We Were Young Lyrics

[Verse 1: Tom DeLonge]
When we were young
The world felt so small (Felt so small)
When we were young
Nothing could break us apart (Break us apart)
Do you know your eyes are like stars? (Are like stars)
Summer nights, making out in my car (In my car)

[Chorus: Tom DeLonge]
When we were young
Are you still riding free like every other?
When we were young
Nothing's too fast 'cause we explode together
When we were young
Do you still think of me, like maybe ever?
When we were young
Losing something we had when we were younger

[Verse 2: Mark Hoppus]
Back in the day we used to say
"F**k them all" (F**k them all)
Prodigal sons, were second to none
They gave me a job (Gave me a job)
Now I'm stuck at work like a typical jerk with nowhere to go
(Nowhere to go)
We fell out of touch, now everything sucks
I'm out on my own (Out on my own)

[Chorus: Tom DeLonge]
When we were young
Are you still riding free like every other?
When we were young
Nothing's too fast 'cause we explode together
When we were young
Do you still think of me, like maybe ever?
When we were young
Losing something we had when we were younger

[Chorus: Tom DeLonge]
When we were young
Are you still riding free like every other?
When we were young
Nothing's too fast 'cause we explode together
When we were young
Do you still think of me, like maybe ever?
When we were young
Losing something we had when we were younger
