You Me At Six – When We Were Younger lyrics

When I was younger, I always thought
I could be someone if I tried enough
When I was younger, my father said
Wear a smile, show respect
When I was younger, you never said
When I was older, I'd feel helpless
When I was younger, you shone the light
And now that I'm older, it doesn't shine bright
When I was younger, you always said
That as I got older, you'd always be there

I'm singin' ooohhh, I'm singin' ooohhh
I'm singin' ooohhh, I'm singin' ooohhh

When I was younger, I used to care
About everything that my father said
When I was younger, you even told me
Just show evil, the upmost respect
When I was younger, I never thought
That when I was older, I'd see you give up
Now that I'm older, I carry the torch
Just promise you'll stand, you'll be strong

I'm singin' ooohhh, I'm singin' ooohhh
I'm singin' ooohhh, I'm singin' ooohhh
I'm singin' ooohhh, I'm singin' ooohhh
I'm singin' ooohhh, I'm singin' ooohhh

When I was younger, I never thought
When I was younger, I never thought
When I was older, I'd fight your wars,
When I was older, I'd fight your wars,
I'd do it for you, I'd do it for you
I'd do it for you, I'd do it for you

When I was younger, I only dreamed
That when I got older, you'd be proud of me
When I was younger, I promised you both
That when I was older, you'd be proud of me

    Josh: "It's about my parents and how I've slowly seen them become more vulnerable. When you're younger, you think they're superheroes but, eventually, you need to start looking after them."
    max: "I wrote this in the bus on the Warped Tour and I was listening to a lot of Pink Floyd. I wanted to write a really atmospheric song. People aren't going to be expecting this."
