WHEN I WAS YOUNG
Neffex


I've been looking all around
Tryna figure out what the hell really counts
When everything feels like it's fillin up with doubt
Thoughts heading south
And no one can hear me shout

And the voices in my head so loud
Calm before the storm like a Seattle cloud
The sky so gray trna figure it out
Why I'm so down in this sunlight drought

Yeah memories coming back to me
Of a simpler time when I was young and free
Playing games with the kids that lived next to me
Didn't care about time or anything, yeah

But things changed, turned 23
Had to figure out what the hell was next for me
Do I do the safe thing something guaranteed?
Or do I do what I love till my fingers bleed?

It'll all be okay
Figure out my own way
But for now here I lay
And remember a day
When I was young
When I was young

Smoke stacks 'cause it's cold outside
Fire burning from the other night
I can smell the coals in my soul it
Makes me feel something deep inside

Memories of a better life
Memories where I felt alive
In these times you can choose to survive
In these times you can choose to thrive

And I wanna make somethin', take somethin'
Take control of my life and display somethin'
Show the world what I love and go play something
Show the world what I love on a stage strumming

And I wanna make y'all feel the same
And I wanna take away all the pain
At least for a minute while I play
I wanna make you feel okay

It'll all be okay
Figure out my own way
But for now here I lay
And remember a day
When I was young
When I was young, yeah
