lyrics

When you were young
We’d talk about everything
When you were young
We’d lie in bed remembering
What happened in the day
The minutes they would slip away

When you were young
We’d walk through the neighborhood
When you were young
Discussing what was bad and good
Playing silly games
You were the engineer I was the train

Now that you’re older
So much older
Something’s in the way
There’s hardly anything we can say
That matters

When you were young
We’d sing in the car ride home
When you were young
I never went traveling alone
I knew it wouldn’t last
But I didn’t think it would end this fast

Now that you’re older
So much older
Something’s in the way
There’s hardly anything we can say
That matters
I wish it would matter

When you were young
I thought you could depend on me
When you were young
There’s lots of things I didn’t see
You had to pull away
I hope that you’ll come back someday

Now that you’re older
So much older
Something’s in the way
There’s hardly anything we can say
That matters

Now that you’re older
And getting older
Something’s in the way
There’s hardly anything that we say
That matters
I wish it would matter

When you were young
