"When We Were Young" as written by Gavin Bradley Gardiner, Andrew Kekewich, Simon Walker and Andrew Wyatt....
When we were young I felt like dancing in the streets
But I was drunk and you were lying at my feet
Sure we were fine but you know it never meant that much to me
So I put my hand in the fire just to see how it might be
There are lots of people living in this town
Who go off to work at nothing
It just gets me down
So I don't pay it any mind
You said just to make I'd have to leave this place
Pack up all my things and get to bed by 8
But I couldn't get the nerve to go

So I'm going to find another lover tonight
Who will tell me everything's going to be alright
I'm going to find another lover tonight
Who will tell me everything's going to be alright

I'd settle in and buy a little patch of grass
But it brings me down to think these are things I'll never have
A home and a wife with a child just seem so far out of reach
So I'm making a plan in my head to bring these little things home to me
I'm sick of all these faces that I know
Walking up and down these streets just makes me feel old
But I'm having trouble letting go

I'm going to find another lover tonight
Who will tell me everything's going to be alright
I'm going to find another lover tonight
Who will tell me everything's going to be alright

We were wild and we were living beyond our means
You had a girl in every city
And I had a girl just up the street
But I could never make a change that fast
And got stuck living in the past
I was trying to hold on to something I knew would never last
