Ben rector - Kids

I saw a photograph from ten years back
It's you and I, we're standin' 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 drivin' through the night, sleepin' on hotel floors
And thinkin' that we had it good

We were kids back then, thinkin' we could live forever
We were kids back then
We were wild and free, takin' all the world together
We were kids back then
That's how we're always gonna be

Passed an old friend on my timeline who had lately been on my mind
We were close as blood
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, thinkin' we could live forever
We were kids back then, you and me
We were wild and free, takin' all 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 mornin', and we're awake again
You are holdin' 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, thinkin' we would live forever
We were kids back then
We're so young and free, takin' all the world together
We were kids back then
That's how we're always gonna be

We were kids back then, thinkin' we could live forever
We were kids back then, you and me
We were wild and free, takin' all 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
