"Young and Old" as written by and Mitchell Bennett....
How long, how long
Until I see you?
And when, and when does
The light come shining through?
Remember days when we were so young and
Remember days when we were so young and
We were so young and old

    General CommentNo one commented on this amazing song??? What the fuck, the ending is just mind-blowing and so much better than almost anything.
    However I think it's about losing someone and longing to see him/her back. And about remembering that someone and how the time just used to stand still when they were together. How it seemed that the world was just made for the two of them and like nothing could ever change that fact. And that makes it even more unbelievable that that someone seems now gone forever...

    Beautiful sad song!

    General CommentI'm pretty sure they say:

    "remember days when we were so young and blue"

    Maybe not both times, but definitely the second.

    General CommentI agree the ending is heaven in my ears. I love songs that are bare bones in words but can have the most resounding and stirring message.

    I always think about when I was 18, and a senior in high school.. and about all of the contrasting emotions I was feeling as I felt really young but at the same time old.. and I think about my love[s] back in that time and how I thought the world would stand still for us and we'd grow gray together and reminisce.

    General CommentI agree with ExcessiveClaptrap.. and it's exactly how I feel at the moment. I just break out in tears everytime I hear this song. Life is so beautiful.
