We hope this song makes you smile... even if you hadn’t felt good for a while :)



I guess you could smile even if you hadn't felt good for a while
I guess you could laugh even though you're only half there
I guess you could sing even though your hands are shaking
I guess you could speak even though the future looks so bleak
I guess you could love even though it's never enough
I guess you could dream even though you don't know what it means
I miss my family
think they'll forgive me?
I miss the green, green river
with the water that looks like silver in your eyes
when we were young
when we were young
when we were young
I guess you could follow even though inside you're hollow
I guess you could lead even though you know you're the one in need
I guess you could trust even though some days it's a total bust
I guess you could grow even though the more you learn,
the less you know
I guess you could hope even though it looks like a sinking boat
I guess you could mope and say, 'that's all she wrote'
I miss the school yard
where we would try so hard
I miss the possibility of you and me
when we were young
when we were young
when we were young
when we were young
I guess you could fly even though you're afraid of heights
I guess you could quit even though you know you could do it
I guess you could freak even though you're not past your peak
I guess you could curse even though things could be worse
I miss the holiday
when we'd get away
I miss the living room and birthday balloons
when we were young
when we were young
when we were young
when we were young...
