When we were young we were wise
We tried to do everything right

Do you see it coming?

When we were young we were afraid
To be cast out, to be ashamed

Do you feel it pulling?

O’ the fears will they rage always?
O’ our bodies will age, but our love will grow

When we were young we knew God
So sure we couldn’t be lost

Do you hear him calling?

Now we hardly believe
In anything we can’t see

Still you’re standing in front of me

O’ the fears they will rage always
O’ the seas they will change but our love will stay
O’ our bodies will age, but our love will grow

We thought, we learn
We thought we knew the world
When we were young
We thought, we learn
We thought we knew the world
When we were young

We thought, we learn
We thought we knew about the world
When we were young
We thought, we learn
We thought we knew about the world
When we were young
