Remember when I was young and so were you
And time stood still and love was all we knew
You were the first, so was I
We made love and then you cried
Remember when

Remember when we vowed the vows and walked the walk
Gave our hearts, made the start, it was hard
We lived and learned, life threw curves
There was joy, there was hurt
Remember when

Remember when old ones died and new were born
And life was changed, disassembled, rearranged
We came together, fell apart
And broke each other's hearts
Remember when

Remember when the sound of little feet
Was the music we danced to week to week
Brought back the love, we found trust
Vowed we'd never give it up
Remember when

Remember when thirty seemed so old
Now lookin' back, it's just a steppin' stone
To where we are, where we've been
Said we'd do it all again
Remember when

Remember when we said when we turned gray
When the children grow up and move away
We won't be sad, we'll be glad
For all the life we've had
And we'll remember when

Remember when
Remember when

    General CommentThe song is pretty self-explanatory.
    It talks about growing up, learning things on the way, maturing, and becoming a new person.

    General Commentwhen I first heard this song, i will admit, it made me misty. I was with my girlfriend at the time and she had three kids and we had raised them for two years together, of course, she got transfered in her job, i couldn't find a job and we fought alot about money. we tried to make it work but in the end, it jsut would' in a way, this song takes on a different meaning for me, when you got someone you want to share your life with, think of this song, and think this way, you can be with that person all of your life and look back with them and say Remember when? or you can sit back alone, and think to yourself, remember when? sometimes songs make you see things you never think about

    General CommentFor my parents 30th anniversary, I made a cd of old pictures of our family growing up. I needed a song to play while we watched the movie, and I had just bought Alan's greatest hits 2 cd. As soon as I heard this song, I knew it was the one to listen to while we watched the movie. When my mom started crying, I knew it was the perfect song. This song fits my parents perfectly. I love this song. It's so beautiful.

    General CommentFor me-alone and heartbroken over the break up from the man that I was sure I would end up with...this song is painful to hear ~ but so beautiful. Makes me want to make marriage work-not give up, and do it right the next time that I fall in love.

    General CommentI'm young. And, this song, wow. Brings tears to my eyes. My mother brought me to an Alan Jackson concert, and I can admit, I was hesitant to going because I'm not into country music at all. When this song came on, I was bawling my eyes out. The imagery playing in the background while he does this song is just.. wow. Beautiful.
