"The Nights Were Young" as written by and Snare/leverty....
Can you remember from way back when
It was the summer that we became best friends
And we made a promise that nothing could tear us apart
Now we used to hang out behind the old motel
We`d throw apples at cars and run like hell
We might`ve had a few close calls, but we never got caught
But when the sun went down we didn`t go home yet
We would lay on the grass and smoke cigarettes
And stare up at the sky and count up all the stars, that`s when

[Chorus:]
The nights were young and we thought that they would last forever
But nothing ever does so we`ll just have to remember
Though time slips by, the memories remain
I could never forget when the nights were young

Back then they said that we were way too young
But we were old enough to have some fun
And we`d laugh until it hurt and we were both in tears
Now we used to stake out the neighborhood liquor store
We couldn`t go inside for a couple years more
So we`d send the older kids to sneak a couple of beers
We didn`t have a care or a worry back then
We could count on each other through thick and thin
Nothing could come in between us we swore `till the end, that`s when

[Chorus]
(Solo)
The nights were young and we thought that they would last forever
But nothing ever does so we`ll just have to remember
The nights were young and we swore we`d always be together
But we went our separate ways so we`ll just have to remember
Though time slips by the memories remain
I could never forget when the nights were young
