When We Were Young
When we were young
We were small but we didn't know it
When you were hurt
You would smile so you didn't show it
And I can't believe you're mine
Can't believe you're mine
When we were young
We were brave, we were wild warriors
And you liked to race
So we'd run to the distant shores
And I can't believe you're mine
Can't believe you're mine
When the night came we would both say goodbye and go
But now that I'm older I'm sleepless outside your door
So let me in
I can't believe you're mine
Now we are tall
We are wise
We are tired or growing
All of this time
You and I
How did we not know it
And I can't believe you're mine
Can't believe you're mine
Can't believe you're mine

    This song is talking about when maybe her and her friend were younger talking about how when they were younger they were different how they were brave and stronger just like children are in the world today they are not afraid of anything because they are not experienced and that's all they know.
