When we were young the world seemed so old
Careless and cold
We did what we were told in our lifes
When we were young
Had the world by the tail
Good would prevail
Starships at sail
And none of us would fail in this life
Not when you're young

We were drawn to whoever could keep us together
And bound? by the heavens above
And we tried to survive travelling at the speed of love

(Wo oh oh)
When we were young
When we adored the fabulous
(Wo oh oh)
When we were young
We were the foolish... ?
Never knowing the cost of what we paid letting someone else be strong
(Who oh oh)
When we were young

In a moment of grace
A long leap of faith
The still more glorious dawn awaits
My life... ?
I'm here with the lovers... ?

And we burned the bridges
We're crossing over... ?
Just to see the firelight
And the innocent are getting over
Being old... ? tonight

(Who oh oh)
When we were young
When everything was what it seemed
(Who oh oh)
When we were young
And every day was how we dreamed
Never knowing the cost of what we paid letting someone else be strong
(Who oh oh)
When we were young

And when you look at yourself tonight
Are you someone you recognize?
You can take back what you've given away but it must be the last time

(Who oh oh)
When we were young
(Who oh oh)
When we were young
When we were young

(Wo oh oh)
When we were young
When we adored the fabulous
(Wo oh oh)
When we were young
We were the foolish... ?
(Who oh oh)
When we were young
We didn't know it wouldn't last
(Who oh oh)
When We Were Young


Take That - When We Were Young

Sorry for all the incorrect words...
Not such a great idea letting a Swedish 19-year old re-write the lyrics xD
But this will hopefully due!

    I think this song is obviously reflective 'when we were young' meaning that they're aware of how much has changed in that time and they're looking back and how it was and how it is and what's different and what they see differently
