The Wood Brothers – When I Was Young lyrics

When I was young I didn't look at the clouds and hope for the rain
When I was young I didn't think these lights would ever bring me sorrow
When I was young I thought someday everybody's gonna know my name
When I was young the hardest work I had was waitin' for tomorrow

When I was young I used to wake up early in the morning
When I was young I could climb up a mountain didn't matter how tall
When I was young I didn't listen to anybody's warning
When I was young I could jump; I wasn't afraid to fall

Well now I'm grown, and things are not exactly what they seem
The older I get, the less I know and the more I dream

When I was young I didn't worry about money in my pocket
When I was young I didn't think I'd ever need to buy a diamond ring
When I was young I used to put my heart in a cage and lock it
When I was young I could talk about love but I didn't know a thing

But now I'm grown, and things are not exactly what they seem
The bigger I get, the smaller the world, and the less it all means

When I was young I used to say my prayers without the feelin'
When I was young I didn't worry about the things I couldn't understand
When I was young I didn't know anything about hurtin' and healin'
When I was young I guess I didn't believe I'd ever be a man

But now I'm grown, and things are not exactly what they seem
I think about God - and I wonder does he think about me
