And one day the world’s gonna be alright,
And there will be no pain
Shut the ICU down tonight
'Cause everyone is safe
And I will overlook this operation by your side

'Cause we’re too young, we’re still kids
We’re too young, we’re still kids

I see your hearts get bigger when you lose your friends
And everyone’s around you saying that it’s not the end,
It's not the end

But you cried so hard,
And I watched you grow so strong
And I made you laugh in my arms
And your tear-stained shirt, you felt the snowflakes on your back

And you stood so proud
You had me wishing, wanting, begging for some words from you
And you smiled to the crowd,
It’s enough for now

’Cause we’re too young, we’re still kids
We’re too young, we’re still kids

Take a break from the mask,
You’ve done enough today
I saw you smiling like it’s all ok,
And it will be soon

This is a song for the boys and the girls I never met
And all my friends that I have had and I have kept
So get me down, down for the count
’Cause we are all the same, we’re all the same

It’s my job to keep you strong, I do it ’cause I’m supposed to
It’s my job to keep you strong, I do it ’cause I like to
It’s my job to keep you strong, I do it ’cause I’m told to.
It’s my job to keep you strong, I do it ’cause I love you
I do it 'cause I love you
I do it 'cause I love you
I do it 'cause I love you

On that day, we will be in charge
The weather’s always bright and 68 degrees

    My InterpretationI think it means life is really tough (with all the war and the killing going on) and we need to keep each other strong and support one another instead of tearing each other apart.  In the end...we all really are just the same.  And the mask that he refers to is about people not being themselves.  I think the song is saying we should all love one another and be kind to everyone.  What a great world it would be if we all were like that.  Sorry if that's sappy...just my opinion.

    General Commenti dont think words can even go to describe this song.
    it could be about someone dying and being there for that person, and proving to them that youll always be there for them and to protect them through the hard times
    it can also be about people (kids) growing up too fast)
    its just a pure beautiful song

    I think it's about two young friends and one looks put for one another and the fLl in love butones sayin they're too young too but then they tell them tht they will still be there for them no matter what ever happens

    My InterpretationThe Ready Set is my favorite band! This song is my life! I have 3 really close friends! But they are all like 4 years older then me! they are like my big sisters they look out for me! And they do it cause they are suppose to and they like to and they love me! This song is just my life and we are all really young! So this song is about protection! looking out for the ones you love and are younger! and watching and taking care of them in different ways!
