Back when we were younger,
we were bold and we were brave
And we had a little faith in our hearts

We could wear them on our sleeves
Just as long as we believed
That we would never tear each other’s apart

And we never had to get our feet wet first
We held’em right on the fire
Yeah, we dove head on after we felt
Or we burned in our desire
Yeah, we burned in our desire

Didn’t’ complicate things
Until I said its name out loud

Then experience and fear
Held it back till it was clear
That she was gone and I was too damn proud

Cuz I’d never had to get my feet wet first
I held’em right on the fire
Yeah I dove head on after what I was feeling
And I burned in my desire
Yeah, I burned in my desire

Now I’m getting older and I’m getting scared
Cuz I don’t wanna alone right now,
But I don’t wanna show I care

So maybe I’ll just get my feet wet first
Before I hold’em to the fire
Then I’ll dive head on after what I’m feeling
Or I’ll burn in my desire
Yeah, I’ll burn in my desire
