When I was young at night I'd call your name
When I was young I fell in love every other day
When I was young, lord when I was young

All of what I've done and all I've seen
Place it brought me to, the place I thought I'd be
When I was young, lord when I was young

Now in the lonesome of the night I wake, no names do I call
And in the lonesome of the night I drink, to all the loves I've lost
Oh the days I let slip away
I was fierce and wild in love when I was young

Working never did agree with me
Maybe I never stuck around long enough to see
When I was young, lord when I was young
When I was young, lord when I was young

Now in the lonesome of the night I wake, no names do I call
And in the lonesome of the night I drink, to all the loves I've lost
Oh the days I let slip away
I was fierce and wild in love when I was young

All those long gone nights with you next to me
I let those years slip by so easily
They went so easily

I spent all my days trying to be
Something you can't hold, something close to free
But I ain't young, lord knows that I'm not young

Oh the days I let slip away
I was fierce and wild in love when I was young
Oh the days, all the mistakes that I made
I was fierce and wild in love when I was young
