Do you remember when we were kids?
And the way that it was
Build a mountain of anything
And look out from the top
And bring a handful of rocks from school
Put them in a secret place in your room
But I don't know why we never think of ourselves that way
We held the world in our hands by doing something that everyone does
That's the way that is was

You cover all of your tracks
With pride, shame, and dust
Living like your saving for
When you're down on your luck
But I know you're trying to get ahead
You came over to me and said, "It's all OK."
You're thinking about this way too much
Your best friend, keeping your chin-up
But the feeling faded away at the end of the day

Hey, there are plenty of people I know
Who don't give their worth
They've said it's something they hide to outgrow
But I gave each one hell because they won't say what's really missing for them
But they wouldn't listen because
That's the way that it was
That's the way that it was
That's the way that it was
That's the way that it was
That's the way that it was
That's the way that it was
