A harbour dance, I didn't live my youth with sufficient recklessness
Yeah I envy your youth, yes I envy your youth, I envy your youth, yes I envy your youth.
But looking at you now girl
I know we'll never be haunted by such doubts.
Yes it's clear as the day, yes it's clear as the day
It's clear as the day, yes it's clear as the day

I once had big dreams like you girl
I once had big dreams like you girl
I once had big dreams like you girl
But they're hard to sustain in this world

Oh we could have hit class, the kind people can't see past
Yeah I should have known better, yes I should have known better
Oh its too painful to look at you.
The memories you bring to the front of my mind
The regrets you bring to the front of my mind

I once had big dreams like you girl
I once had big dreams like you girl
I once had big dreams like you girl
But they're hard to sustain in this world

Ahhhhh aaaa-aaa-aaaahhh

A harbour dance I didn't live my youth with sufficient recklessness
I envy your youth, yes I envy your youth, I envy your youth, yes I envy your youth

    General CommentI'm pretty sure he's saying 'I harbor doubts,' not 'a harbor dance.'
    Other than that, this song makes me feel so light and so heavy all at once. It's a romantic sort of feeling.
