Too Young

Desiree - Too Young
Desiree - Too Young

This song is about the innocence of 2 best friends growing up together in a small town... when life's most pressing decision was what flavor to choose at Baskin Robins.

This was the first song I wrote when I moved to Nashville, TN. I was reminiscing of my youth and memories that me and my best fried Ellen from high school shared together. I didn't get real creative with this one... Welcome my life folks.

Desiree :)

 

 

Lyrics

Too Young

Your car was cherry red, we used to drive all night
Dreaming of the future and laughing at the moon
We never worried, and we swore we'd never care
We were both invincible, and life was fair

But we were, Too Young to realize
Too Young to see
Too Young to know how crazy life can be
We were too Young to appreciate, Too Young to believe
That these were the only years that we would ever be care free

The summer heat would melt us but our spirits would fly high
We'd sneak home past our curfew, laughing at the moon
Strawberry wind down by the railroad tracks
When I left I thought that I could always come back

But I was, Too Young to realize
Too Young to see
Too Young to know how crazy life can be
Too Young to appreciate, Too Young to believe
That these were the only years that I would ever be care free

I remember hearing, enjoy it when you're young
But I'd be out that door, before those words were done

Cause I was, Too Young to realize
Too Young to see
Too Young to know how crazy life can be
Too Young to appreciate, Too Young to believe
That these were the only years that we would ever be care free
