When We Were Winning

This song is by Broder Daniel and appears on the album Cruel Town (2003).

Oh when we were seventeen
Oh life was like a film
When we were seventeen
The sky was always tangerine
We ran through streets at night
Under starlight
We ran through streets at night
When we were winning

Oh wild was the world
And wild we burned
We were kings of the streets
Not yet beaten by defeat
But now it's hard to see
Through a fog of memories
But I remember
When we were winning

Now my friends are unemployed
Not needed in this world
Pushed down by this town
And always turned down
But in dreams at night
They can sometimes recall
When we were heroes
When we were winning

What have we done to our lives?
We could've been anything
We gave it our love for what?
This is the time

Oh it's in the air at night
There is a wind coming in
The days dying
Oh it's so beautiful
There's something happening somewhere
I take the bus into town
All I see is laughing
And we are winning

Soon I grow older
But God knows
I haven't lived yet
Before tonight's a memory
Let's go out
I am still young

Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah
