WHEN I WAS YOUNG — ONE

WHEN I WAS YOUNG — ONE

When I was young,
I once ran naked into the sea,
And swam as far as I could swim,
Almost drowned! But I was young.
And that was then.

When I was young,
I drank a lot of beer,
And held in my pee,
Until the drinking was long done.
But that was then, how silly of me.

When I was young,
I loved the open sea,
And fell asleep one mindless, youthful day
And was burned as burned could ever be.
I was young, and oh so foolish back then.

When I was young,
And most immature,
I hooked onto the world
And ran towards the sun.
But that was way back then.

When I was young,
I helped pick up the remains of those
Left laying in the dirt, once upon a day,
And drank that night to forget the sight.
When I was young and unafraid.
