i've got the pictures of the memories
of running with the gang
black and white on paper
but in my head the colors never fade

that was before
when nothing else
took precedence over saving the world


we used to draw lines in the sand
that none of us would dare to cross

we'd go on secret missions to stop the villian's plan
at any cost

when was the last time you
you laughed so hard you cried?

don't let these days fly by
cuz you can't turn back time
[no matter] how hard you try

thought of giving up on being grown
there's too much life to live before you're old
i'm finally giving up on being grown
there's too much life to live before you're old

when was the last time you
you laughed so hard you cried?

    General Commentaww i love this song... it makes me sad and happy at the same time. its about not letting your childhood go to waste and to just live it up before you get too old and regret not doing anything with your life.

    General Commenti loved being younger... recently i've lost touch with a friend i've had all my life, just seing him grow up without me is so hard. i wish he knew how much he meant to me...

    General Commentim all like ready to go to college and i feel so old, and i keep listening to this and it makes me feel like everything ive been doing is some preparation for the future and i have missed the point of being young... so im making a pledge to myself to act my real age for the next three months until i leave
