Running down those country roads

We were sixteen, free and alone

Didn’t care what life had in store for us

Just singing the songs of our own


Where did those children go

They spread their wings and flew away

I lost track of them so long ago

If only I could go back to those days


I would not worry about the hypocrites

Or all the other ne’er-do-well

They should have followed their own advice

As far as I can tell


But we listened to all of their lies

Instead of letting our hearts sing

I watched the sunrise fade from your eyes

And now I know what the future brings
