When we were young
We all lived for fun
We thought we were special.
There were no goodbyes,
We believed all the lies,
Always under pressure.

Well there's something on my mind
And it's hard to say I tried to tell you
We're running out of time
And I know, I know, I know...

If it makes you feel good and it makes it alright,
Then it's bound to connect deep in everybody's eyes
All it takes is a song with a hook and a line
And it's bound to blow up like the 4th of July.

Oh, when we were young
We laid in the sun
At night we were faded.
We never went home but
We were never alone,
Yeah, we thought we had made it.

Well there's something on my mind
And it's hard to say I tried to tell you
But take this as a sign
Cuz I know, I know, I know...

If it makes you feel good and it makes it alright,
Then it's bound to connect deep in everybody's eyes
All it takes is a song with a hook and a line
And it's bound to blow up like the 4th of July.

Whatever, there'll be laughter, remember, forever!

If it makes you feel good and it makes it alright,
Then it's bound to connect deep in everybody's eyes
All it takes is a song with a hook and a line
And it's bound to blow up like the 4th of July.

If it makes you feel good and it makes it alright,
Then it's bound to connect deep in everybody's eyes
All it takes is a song with a hook and a line
And it's bound to blow up like the 4th of July.

Oh, when we were young.
Oh, when we were young.
When we were young.
When we were young.
