When We Were Young

When we were young
We could do anything
We could be anything

We were villains
That always got away

We were heroes
Who saved the day

When we were young
We always looked up
With smiles or frowns

We were each others friends
Family, doctor, and cure
We were everything to each other
Childhood pals

When we were young
Nothing held us back
Nothing let us drop

We were in the clouds
Flying high soaring through
We were in a world
That held all possibilities

When we were young
It was so long ago
And now we are old
No longer so invincible
