When we first met we were kids, we were wild, we were insects
And after a while I grew coarse, I grew cold, I grew reckless
I hold this memory, hold you so close to me
Whispered we'll be always happy

Lately it feels like I'm asleep and I just can't wake up
Pacing the floor, want to call but I can't so I hang up
Sharing a secret on the train with a lady
Who's crying has ruined her make up

Now I see just how young, how scared I was
Eyes closed tight, throwing punch after punch at the world
Sarah, is it ever gonna be the same?
Sarah, is it ever gonna be the same?

Said goodbye to all the places I used to go
Said goodbye to all the faces I used to know
Nothing lasts forever
I guess by now I should know, I should know

There ain't a thing I can say that will ever repair
And you, who had so much advice and yet couldn't share
Maybe someday we will look back on this
And we'll smile but right now I can't bear

Now I see just how young, how scared I was
Eyes closed tight, throwing punch after punch at the world
Sarah, is it ever gonna be the same?
Sarah, is it ever gonna be the same?
