That was the way, that was the way it was

When you're five years old and don't have nowhere else to run
       A chord diagramC majorC                                              A chord diagramE minorEm
Except into your mother's arms, where she held you so tight
           A chord diagramA minorAm                                                     A chord diagramFF
And you're scared of the dark so you sleep with your little night light

When you walked up to school and everyone there was your best friend
         A chord diagramA minorAm                                         A chord diagramFF
When you learned your numbers and shapes and played pretend
           A chord diagramC majorC                                               A chord diagramE minorEm
You didn't mind that your hair was a mess, you were so carefree
           A chord diagramA minorAm                                       A chord diagramFF
You didn't know how cold and cruel this world would one day be


Chorus:
A chord diagramDmDm              A chord diagramG MajorG
We were just so young
               A chord diagramC majorC
We should have known
   A chord diagramE minorEm          A chord diagramA minorAm
We should have known

That one day we'd hate our bodies and we'd orbit around buttons on a phone

We should have known
         A chord diagramDmDm                                   A chord diagramG MajorG                                  A chord diagramC majorC
That one day we'd pluck our eyebrow hairs and wonder why the cool kids stared at me
   A chord diagramE minorEm               A chord diagramA minorAm
Oh why'd it have to be
    A chord diagramDmDm
Our imaginations have run dry
   A chord diagramG MajorG                                 A chord diagramC majorC
We hate ourselves and have a nightly cry
            A chord diagramE minorEm             A chord diagramA minorAm
And then we act like we're fine
     A chord diagramDmDm                                 A chord diagramG MajorG                           A chord diagramC majorC
It's alcohol and bombs and drugs, don't ever let your children grow up

(Oh oh oh oh oh oh)

We would swing on the swings and jump off and pretend we could fly
       A chord diagramA minorAm                                             A chord diagramFF
But as soon as we blinked we grew up and we're junior high
       A chord diagramC majorC                                                       A chord diagramE minorEm
So our dads dropped us off at the park and we stayed out 'till ten
       A chord diagramA minorAm                                        A chord diagramFF
So the makeup comes out and we think we need the perfect boyfriend


Chorus:
A chord diagramDmDm              A chord diagramG MajorG
We were just so young
              A chord diagramC majorC
How didn't we know
    A chord diagramE minorEm        A chord diagramA minorAm
How didn't we know
             A chord diagramDmDm                         A chord diagramG MajorG                                          A chord diagramC majorC
That we'd be independent on our own and lose more friends while traveling down the road
        A chord diagramE minorEm        A chord diagramA minorAm
Oh, how didn't we know
             A chord diagramDmDm                               A chord diagramG MajorG                                     A chord diagramC majorC
That there's more to life than sleepovers and jocks turn out worse than the science nerds
    A chord diagramE minorEm                    A chord diagramA minorAm
But somehow that all gets blurred
           A chord diagramDmDm
And some relationships they end real fast
    A chord diagramG MajorG                                      A chord diagramC majorC
And though you want you might never get it back
          A chord diagramE minorEm              A chord diagramA minorAm
The doors close just like that
       A chord diagramDmDm                                   A chord diagramG MajorG                           A chord diagramC majorC
It's depression and it's broken love, don't ever let your children grow up

    A chord diagramE minorEm          A chord diagramA minorAm
(Oh oh oh oh oh oh)

A chord diagramC majorC  A chord diagramE minorEm

We're no longer young

So now that we know
   A chord diagramE minorEm          A chord diagramA minorAm
So now that we know

That this world could use some turning 'round, if only we could find some common ground

But it's up to us
