"We Are Young" as written by Nathaniel Motte and Sean Foreman....
Windows down
Pedal to the sneakers
Turn up the volume
Blow out the speakers
Best clothes on
Going down on fire
Turn the lights off
Turn the music higher

I broke free; cast away
Won't find me
And now you're never gonna break me down
Gonna break me down
This is all I can take
So farewell
'Cause you're never gonna find me now
Gonna find me now

We are young
We are young
We drink and we fight
And we love just because
We are numb
We are on the run
And you're never gonna chase us down
We are young

Dance with the devil
Don't be shy
Nothing's gonna stop us
We can't die
Sleepin' in the bed
Waking up outside
At least I could say I tried

So fathers, don't let go of your daughters
We take what we want
We don't borrow
Think I found a message in a bottle
This says, "Drink me; drown your sorrows"

I broke free; cast away
Won't find me
And now you're never gonna break me down
Gonna break me down
This is all I can take
So farewell
'Cause you're never gonna find me now
Gonna find me now

We are young
We are young
We drink and we fight
And we love just because
We are numb
We are on the run
And you're never gonna chase us down
We are young
(Young, young, young)
We are young
(Young, young, young)
We are young
(Young, young, young)
And you're never gonna chase us down
We are young

If I'm doing this right
I'll be leavin' tonight
I got my bags packed tight
So many reasons to leave
I got my hands on my keys
Yeah, I'll be leavin' tonight

We are young
We are young
We drink and we fight
And we love just because
We are numb
We are on the run
And you're never gonna chase us down
We are young
(Young, young, young)
We are young
(Young, young, young)
We are young
(Young, young, young)
And you're never gonna chase us down
We are young

    General Commenti think its pretty self-explanatory...just saying that they're gonna do things that every other teenager/young adult is doing in this time period

    and the song is just sick in itself

    General CommentGREAT SONG.

    I've first heard it when I downloaded "Hellcats" (a chearleading serie, great soundtrack! Shiny Toy Guns' Ghost Town, My first Kiss & We are Young from 3OH!3, Rockstar from Fefe Dobson and a lot more....)
    And when I downloaded it, I just listened to it over and over until I memorized the lyrics.

    Very, very catchy. Very, very good when you feel like you're so deep down the well you'll never get out. Even better when you're more alone then you've ever been and decide you won't give up the fight.

    GREAT SONG.
