When We Were Young

When We Were Young

We took time to see the sun
Crossing rivers as we’d run
Chasing birds down by the lake in the mud
We would climb up in the trees
Up high among the leaves
We were wild and we were free when we were young

But now we’re older
And we feel the world at our feet
As time turns we drift away
Wish we were young again

We built castles in the sand
Felt like emperors of the land
Making walls to stop the waves from coming up
We found joy in little things
Like imaginary scenes
Oh, I miss the way we were when we were young

But now we’re older
And we feel the world at our feet
As time turns we drift away
And oh how time flies
Then you realize forgotten dreams
Got lost along the way
Wish we were young again
Wish we were young again

But there’s still so much to see in this life in front of me
Like pages of a book still unturned
We could sail the seven seas
Even raise a family
We could dream just like we did when we were young

‘Cause now we’re older
And we feel the world at our feet
As time turns we drift away
And oh how time flies
Then you realise forgotten dreams
Got lost along the way
Wish we were young again
Wish we were young again

When We Were Young‘ ~Hollow Coves~

I know I don’t conform to what society says is normal, thankfully….but I do wish that I had memories of being carefree and happy when I was young. Although I do have some, what I remember most of my youth wasn’t that….it was stress and anxiety….fear and depression….but back then I didn’t know what it was. Heck, I don’t know if it was even thought about much by anyone. Everyone just did the best they could with what they had at the time……mentally, emotionally, and physically. I don’t dwell on it, I mean it is what it is and none of it can be changed……but that doesn’t mean I’d want to go back and live it all again and maybe do it differently. I’m here now…I made it this far with only a few major catastrophes along the way, but hey…isn’t that what life is……..ups, downs, and sideways? It’s all about giving yourself room to make mistakes, learn from them….and if you fall…..picking yourself up….as many times as you need to.
