Kids - Lyrics

I saw a photograph of ten years back
It's you and I, we're standing in the rain
Somewhere outside Atlanta and I think my
Twelve-seat van is right there out of frame
This was before I knew my way around Los Angeles
Before I ever cared about nice neighborhoods
We were driving through the night
Sleeping on hotel floors
And thinking that we had it good

We were kids back then, thinking we would live forever
We were kids back then
We were wild and free, taking on the world together
We were kids back then
That's how we're always gonna be

I used to know a friend on my timeline
Who had lately been on my mind
We were close as blood
And if we sat down for a drink I think we'd forget
all the stupid reasons we lost touch (we lost touch)
It was just because

We were kids back then, thinking we would live forever
We were kids back then
You and me
We were wild and free, taking on the world together
We were kids back then
That's how we're always gonna be

All you got to do is blink your eyes and the years go by like that
They fly right past
I don't want to wait to realize everything that you and I
Already have

Five-thirty in the morning and we're awake again
You are holding baby Jane
I lean in to take a picture when it hits me
In twenty years I will look back and say

We were kids back then, thinking we would live forever
We were kids back then
We're so young and free, taking on the world together
We were kids back then
That's how we're always gonna be

We were kids back then, thinking we would live forever
We were kids back then
You and me
We were wild and free, taking on the world together
We were kids back then
That's how we're always gonna be
That's how we're always gonna be
Oh, that's how we're always gonna be
