We Were All So Young

This song is by Randy Stonehill and appears on the album Edge Of The World (2002).

I was just eighteen, choking back the fright,
Waiting in the wings on a Friday night,
And I walked on stage with my heart beating like a drum,
It was strange, but it felt like coming home, like some deeper truth I had always known,
And I couldn't wait to do it again when the show was done,
And we were all so young, we were all so young. (all so young)

When did the time go by, between a thousand cities and the wink of an eye?
We were all so young,
I guess sometimes I just could not see, with that bright spotlight shining down on me,
I've always had this song on the tip of my tongue,
And we were all so young,
We were all so young.

It was rock and roll 'bout the gospel truth, and it caused a stir that was front page news,
And we quickly learned that you can't please everyone,
But we wanted to stand for what is real, for more than the money or a record deal,
As the critics all sneered, we sang at the top of our lungs,
We were all so young, (we were all so young)
We were all so young. (we were all so young)

I know the times have changed, but the simple truth, it always stays the same,
We were all so young,
I never could have dreamed of the hope and joy that a song can bring,
I've really got to say I'm a fortunate son,
And we were all so young,
We were all so young,
Hey yeah, we were all so young,
We were all so young, yeah, yeah,
We were all so young.

Now the lights go down as the time gets near, and my thoughts flood back over thirty years,
I still feel just as good as when I first begun,
As I gaze at you past the microphone, it's a different view from the one I've known,
Now I'm playing my songs for your daughters and your sons,
And we were all so young, (we were all so young)
We were all so young, (we were all so young)
Yeah.

I've travelled this world around, and one by one I've watched the walls fall down,
And we were all so young,
The hardest thing I find is to keep my focus in complacent times,
You climb the ladder in faith, rung by rung,
Yeah, we were all so young, we were all so young,
Man, we were all so young, (we were all so young)
We were all so young, (all so young)
Yeah, yeah,
So young,
Oh.
