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
