Andy Black – When We Were Young lyrics
[Adele cover]

[Verse 1: Andy Black]
Everybody loves the things you do
From the way you talk to the way you move
Cause everybody here is watching you
Cause you feel like home, you're like a dream come true
But if by chance you're here alone
Can I have a moment before I go?
Cause I've been by myself all night long
Hoping you're someone I used to know

[Pre-Chorus: Andy Black]
You look like a movie
You sound like a song
My God, this reminds me
Of when we were young

[Chorus: Andy Black]
Let me photograph you in this light
In case it is the last time that we might
Be exactly like we were before we realised
We were sad of getting old, it made us restless
It was just like a movie
It was just like a song

[Verse 2: Juliet Simms]
I was so scared to face my fears
Nobody told me that you'd be here
And I swear you'd moved overseas
That's what you said when you left me

[Pre-Chorus: Juliet Simms]
You still look like a movie
You still sound like a song
My God, this reminds me
Of when we were young

[Chorus: Andy Black & Juliet Simms]
Let me photograph you in this light
In case it is the last time that we might
Be exactly like we were before we realised
We were sad of getting old, it made us restless
It was just like a movie
It was just like a song

[Refrain: Juliet Simms]
(When we were young)
(When we were young)
(When we were young)
(When we were young)

[Bridge: Andy Black & Juliet Simms]
It's hard to admit that everything just takes me back
To when you were there, to when you were there
And a part of me keeps holding on just in case it hasn't gone
I guess I still care, do you still care?

[Breakdown: Juliet Simms]
It was just like a movie
It was just like a song
My God, this reminds me
Of when we were young

[Refrain: Juliet Simms]
(When we were young)
(When we were young)
(When we were young)
(When we were young)

[Chorus: Andy Black & Juliet Simms]
Let me photograph you in this light
In case it is the last time that we might
Be exactly like we were before we realised
We were sad of getting old, it made us restless
Oh, I'm so mad I'm getting old, it makes me reckless
It was just like a movie
It was just like a song
When we were young
