There was a time when it moved me
A time when it was all I had
And although I had to grow up
I miss that place

It used to be so clean-cut
Everything was there to see
A place for me to be me
And then it all got serious

I want the fire back

Take me away, take me away
I wanna feel the way I did when I felt young
Take it away, please take it away
I wanna feel the way I did when I felt young

If and when I find you
I won't let you out of sight
'Cause the road at times looks bad
Kind of like you did

And all the time in the world is slipping away

Take me away, please take it away
I wanna feel the way I did when I felt young
Take it away, please take it away
I wanna feel the way I did when I felt young
Take it away, please take it away
I wanna feel the way I did

When I had all the hope in the world to carry me on

Take me away, please take it away
And play it loud like it used to sound when I was young
Take it away, please take me away
I wanna feel the way I did when I felt young
Take it away, take this shit away
And let it move me like it did when I was young

Play it loud like it used to sound when I felt young
Let it move me like it did when I felt young

When I felt young

    General CommentI think this song is about love. As she has gotten older she is finding it harder to love as easily as she once had. I think she is also asking someone to 'take away' all this doubt and reservations she has about love
