Kenny Knox – When I Was Young lyrics

When I was young,
The days would last forever
The sun shone so much brighter
And things seemed so much better

When I was young
Life was less complicated
Less grey & hard & jaded
A lot more love and a lot less hated
When I was young

I didn't need to talk about it,
I kept it to myself, the good & bad
Now it seems the world should know
Every little detail of everybody's show
I find it sad
Wish I was young

When I was young
I reached for goals and dreamed them
I learned to feel and be then
I could talk and play and make friends
When I was young

I didn't need a timeline
Or tweet my thoughts out loud
I didn't need to video myself
I didn't need a screen
To view my memories
I had friends that I didn't need to count

Wish I was young...
