Lyrics

Looking back now, well it makes me laugh
We were growin our hair, we were cuttin’ class
Knew it all already, there was nothing to learn
We were strikin’ matches just to watch ‘em burn

Listen to our music just a little too loud
We were hangin’ in there with the outcast crowd
Headin’ to the rapids with some discount beer
It was a long train trussle but we had no fear.

Man I don’t know, where the time goes
But It sure goes fast, just like that
We were wanna be rebels who didn’t have a clue
With our rock ‘n roll t-shirts, and our typically bad attitudes
Had no excuses for the things that we’d done
We were brave, we were crazy, we were mostly
Young

Talked a good game when we were out with the guys
But in the back seat we were awkward and shy
Girls were a mystery that we couldn’t explain
And I guess there are some things that are never gonna change

Man I don’t know, where the time goes
But It sure goes fast, just like that
We were wanna be rebels who didn’t have a clue
With our rock ‘n roll t-shirts, and our typically bad attitudes
Had no excuses for the things that we’d done
We were brave, we were crazy, we were mostly
Young

Young, Young, Yeah and wishin’ we were older
Young, hey I wish it wasn’t over

Man I don’t know, where the time goes
But It sure goes fast, just like that
We were wanna be rebels who didn’t have a clue
With our Rock n’ roll T-shirts, and our typically bad attitudes
Had no excuses for the things that we’d done
We were brave, we were crazy, we were mostly
Young
Young, hey and wishin’ we were older, wish it wasn’t over

Kenny’s Note

There’s nothing quite like being young… when you can do anything because it hasn’t yet occurred to you that you can’t. It’s all fast, it’s all rocking. You are knee-deep in the experiences and you feel the rush and the pain. Even now, looking back, I can feel everything like it just happened. I think a lot of my fans are facing these same transitions. Maybe they’re falling in love or breaking up, partying or moving on for the first time. Whatever the situation, they are experiencing things that will stamp their lives and how they deal with the future. It can be thrilling and it can be scary, but it will never be the same.
