"Younglife" as written by Butch Walker, Nathan Young, Joseph Milligan, Christian Mcalhaney, Stephen Christian and Deon Rexroat....
Hey brother, do you remember when
We used to play outdoors
Till the light was absorbed by the night.
Hey brother, it was an innocent time.
We used to laugh 'till we cried,
But still boys on the inside.
(I wanna do it again)

First time staying out all night.
Last time that we got away with lies.
I can hear it in the back of my mind.
Over and over again.
(I wanna do it again)

[Chorus]
Late nights and early lights.
Never thought it would come to a goodbye.
I replay it on the back of my mind
Over and over again.
(I wanna do it again)

La la la, la la la la la
La la la la la
(I wanna do it again)

Hey lover, do you remember when
We would dance in your apartment
Till neighbors would knock on your door?
And I remember, do you remember when
We had no money to speak of,
No where else to eat but your floor.
(I wanna do it again)

First time staying out all night.
Last time that we got away with lies.
I can hear it in the back of my mind.
Over and over again.
(I wanna do it again)

[Chorus]

All those days gone forever.
Wonder if we're gonna ever.
See all our young life friends that we made again.
Have we all lost connection?
The life pulls in all directions.
Memories bring us back to where we've been.

(I wanna do it again)

The first time staying out all night.
The last time that we got away with lies.
We can hear it in the back of our minds
Over and over again.
(I wanna do it again)

[Chorus]

[Repeat: x4]
La la la la, la la la la la
La la la la la
(I wanna do it again)

    General CommentThis song is great. This song is about remembering the past and where you came from. Not regretting any aspect of it and wanting to go back, because it was worth it.

    General Commentoh my gosh, the night i got this album literally like 20 mins before my best friend told me he was moving away, then i heard this song... and bawled my eyes out, because everything that it talks about in this song has happened to us... the dancing and neighbors, staying out all night, seriously, its like stephen wrote this song about our friendship... weird. "Never thought it would come to a goodbye" is exactly what i was thinking when he told me, then i heard this song... oh my gosh.

    General Comment@ mrwonderr I don't think anyone yells that. Anberlin is a christian band, and I think they'd catch something like that.

    General CommentGreat song. I can relate, because I recently moved off to college and everyone else from home stayed. Even the friends outside of school are somewhere else.
    The first chorus really reminds me of times with one of my best friends when we'd hang out outside our houses each night (he lived right across from my dad).
    So many memories coming back with this song.

    General CommentIt sounds like he says, "I wanna hear you again" at the end, not "Do you."

    General Commenthahasnorlax, the last time they say that line, it is "I want to hear you again". I just usually get lazy when things are repeated until it fades to the end of the song, so I stopped after the first time.

    General CommentI know, my comment was towards mrwonderr, because he thought they said 'do you' instead of 'hear you.'

    Nice work tho, the rest is good.

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. I'm 22, so I'm at the time of my life where I never see my younglife friends anymore. They're all having babies and planning marriages. It's so depressing but this song helps me re-live all of those memories.

    The first time staying out all night
    The last time that we got away with lies
    We can hear it in the back of our minds
    Over and over again...

    I wanna do it again!
