Forgive The Children We Once Were

This song is by Delta Rae and appears on the album Carry the Fire (2012).

We grew up in golden light
Every chance to get it right
What did we do with it?

It's gone, what I had back then is gone
Can't get it back again

Raised by kids who gave us names
These grown up children we became
Who spread the gossip and the shame

We waited

For love, for dreams in the night
For days to come when we'd be all right
I can't remember why I did the things I did
I was just a kid

All our lives we feel this young
Sorry for the things we should have done
Sorry for the kids we pushed too far
Sorry now for all the lonely hearts who can't move on because

We waited

For love, for dreams in the night
For days to come when we'd be all right
I can't remember why I did the things I did
I was just a kid

All the lines we knew back then, they now are faded
All the laws we once obeyed, they have betrayed us
People that I used to hate, I hardly remember
Forgive the children we once were
