Lyrics

Kicking dust up, I'm wearing out my shoes
I can't make my mind up; I've got too much to lose
I'm old enough to leave home
But way too young to know what I should do
I'm treading water
I'm trying to keep my head above the ground
So would you come with me up to the oak tree?
Time will stop for us again
Look back, remember when
Yeah, we were just eighteen, under the oak tree
Safer than we'd ever been
Hold on to innocence
Where has the time gone? I'm feeling old and gray
Trying to breathe revival into my broken ways
I'm old enough to leave home
But way too young to carry all the blame
I'm treading water
I'm trying to keep my head above the ground
So would you come with me up to the oak tree?
Time will stop for us again
Look back, remember when
Yeah, we were just eighteen, under the oak tree
Safer than we'd ever been
Hold on to innocence
We were young, oh, we were young
And we had time
How I hate the feeling that time
It keeps slipping away
The child in me is kicking; don't let a moment pass
'Cause I can't bear to witness my parents age so fast
They're way too young to fly home
And I can't stand to watch the hourglass
I'm treading water
I'm trying to keep my head above the ground
I'm treading water
I'm trying to keep time from running out
So would you come with me up to the oak tree?
Time will stop for us again
Look back, remember when
Yeah, we were just eighteen, under the oak tree
Safer than we'd ever been
Hold on to innocence
We were young, oh, we were young
And we had time
To be young, oh, to be young
And to have time
