lyrics

WHEN I WAS YOU

I see you runnin' for the roses
Givin' all you have to give
Tryin' too hard to even notice
You're headin' straight into the wind

Settle in and find your stride
It's all so short, enjoy the ride
I should know, 'cause I've been in your shoes
And I did the same when I was you

I'll bet I know just what you're hopin'
Use your speed and set the pace
But happiness is truly knowing
Life is more than just a race

Settle in and find your stride
It's all so short, enjoy the ride
I should know, 'cause I've been in your shoes
And I did the same when I was you

When I was young my daddy tried to help me see
And I ignored him when he said to me

Settle in and find your stride
It's all so short, enjoy the ride
I should know, 'cause I've been in your shoes
And I did the same when I was you

And I did the same when I was you
And I was the same when I was you
