We Were Young

Song Description

I write a lot of song having to do with being young. Youth inspires me because it's generally a time in our lives that we are our purest and happiest. Music, to me represents an expression of my soul, the part of me that's incapable of anything less than perfection, how fortuitous that the two should meet.

Song Length 3:40 Genre Rock - Modern
Tempo Medium (111 - 130) Lead Vocal Male Vocal

Until the sun.... Turns into shade.... While you and I .... Sip lemonade.....

Even if we could.... Change all the bad to good..... Then we'd .... Still be the same ....

So willing to believe ..... Why would you learn.... to de....ceive....

So.... The story goes.... We grow up.... And Than grow old......

Lose our sight.... Then some hair.... If you're smart..... You won't care.....

Well done! Really recorded well - nice balance of all the instruments and I love the backing vocals, those are mixed very well! I really enjoy the dynamics of the whole song - really strong vocals too! At first I didn't know what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised! Very cool tune with a strong hook - I had to listen to it again.

This song is soooo Nice! What a positive thing in my day! Reminds me a bit of "It's the end of the world as we know it" only a whole lot better. I don't usually like this kind of happy music, but there's something about this song, and I cant place my finger on what it is. But I really really like it. One of the best songs I've heard here on Broadjam in a long while.
I'm so heppy I decided to review just one more song!

amazing song very upbeat

Catchy melody lyrics with a sense of humour. Held my interest with new instrumentation and density added and removed from the arrangement. Great hook! Cute ending.
I really like this track.

Nice snappy tune. I like it. Great vocal. Good instrumentation. Nice changes.

Love the intro, catchy and interesting. Great, well thought out production from beginning to end. Great work!

good upbeat fun sounding track. modern with a touch of country folk about it. liked the vocal atyle and rhythm.
good summer track

Fun tune, great vocals and instrumentation. Clear and energetic recording. Memorable melodies as well. Loved it!

Once and a while you come across a song that puts a smile on your face.
This is that song. Nice, nice, nice.
