There was a time when I thought that I would never be this close with anyone
Another lesson and the harshest words
I was be abused at ten out in the hot pacific sun
There was a time I came to your side
It was 3am and you were begging me to die
One year was all it took for you to forget the best friend that always carried you

So why are you still saying I'm not when I already am
(You keep on kicking me down, you keep on kicking me down)
And why are you still saying we won't when we already are
(You keep on kicking me down, you keep on kicking me down)

Ain't it a shame to be so young and insane
Ain't it a shame to be so young and insane

I used to love what I used to love
Moving on was a chore I wasn't quite ready for
They used to say I was a cautious man,
It's been weeks since I looked both ways or gave a damn

There was a time I came to your side
It was 3am and you were begging me to die
One year was all it took for you to forget the best friend that always carried you

So why are you still saying I'm not when I already am
(You keep on kicking me down, you keep on kicking me down)
And why are you still saying we won't when we already are
(You keep on kicking me down, you keep on kicking me down))

Ain't it a shame we're so young and insane
(We're so young and insane, we're so young and insane)
Ain't it a shame we're so young and insane
(We're so young and insane, hey it's such a shame)
Ain't it a shame we're so young and insane
(So young and insane, we're so young and insane)
Ain't it a shame we're so young and insane
(We're so young and insane, hey it's such a shame)

Was there something I said?
Cause there sure as hell will be now
Was there something I said
To make you doubt I could get back up
Cause I can get back up

Ain't it a shame we're so young and insane
(We're so young and insane, we're so young and insane)
Ain't it a shame we're so young and insane
(We're so young and insane, hey it's such a shame)

Why are you still saying we won't when we already are
Ain't it a shame to be so young and insane
