When I was younger, ah-hah,
Living confusion and deep despair.
When I was younger, ah-hah,
Living illusion of freedom and power.

When I was younger, ah-hah,
Full of ideals and broken dreams, my friend.
When I was younger, ah-hah,
Evrything simple but not so clear.

Living on borrowed time,
Without a thought for tomorrow.
Living on borrowed time,
Without a thought for tomorrow.

Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba,
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba - mm - ba-ba-ba-ba.

Now I am older, uh-huh,
The more I see the less I know for sure.
Now I am older, ah-hah,
The future is brighter and now is the hour.

Living on borrowed time,
Without a thought for tomorrow.
Living on borrowed time,
Without a thought for tomorrow.

Good to be older, uh-huh,
Would not exchange a singe day or year.
Good to be older, ah-hah, (mm, babe!)
Less complications, evrything clear.

Living on borrowed time,
Without a thought for tomorrow.
Living on borrowed time,
Without a thought for tomorrow.

Oh yes, it all seemed so bloody easier then.
You know, like what to wear, very serious like,
You know, am I gonna get the little pimples?
Does she really love me, all that crap.
But now I dont bother about that shit no more,
I know she loves me! all I gotta bother about is standing up.

Uh-doo-doo-doo-doo-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah...

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-uh,
Alright, you can get out of that now.

Uh-uh-uh-uh.
