down in the creek
caught in the stream
where you shared your skin with me
it was enough, just to be young

falling asleep
covered in leaves
while the sun set on the trees
it was enough, just to be young

got lost on an old trail looking for you
on the banks of the river like we used to do
water dried up years ago
silk rope 'round my neck on the morning commute
well I don't know if this is living or just something to do
maybe i'm just passing time

and I grew up too fast
i just grew up too fast
i grew up too fast
i just grew up too fast

got lost in a moment waiting for you
in a downtown bar with some thoughts to lose
eighteen down six more to go
there's an old man slurring out pieces of truth
he said, "son you gotta move you gotta move you gotta move
just look how life left me behind

and you'll grow up too fast
you'll grow up too fast
cause no one tells you that
you've got to make it last

back when we were young
when the world had just begun
back when we were young
we still had a little love
back when when we were young
yeah back when we were (young)
back when we were

but we grew up too fast
we just grew up too fast
cause no one told us that
you gotta make it last
