Dave Barnes

Dave Barnes - Twenty Three

rate me

We were gonna be the ones on the radio

Gonna be the ones with the sold-out shows

Wanted everyone to know our name

We were busy chasing lights and fame

A band in a van headed to your town

Weren't gonna leave till you kicked us out

Doing what we had to do

Crashing on a couch or two

And when the lights went down

We were singing

We were young and fun

Just another band on the run

We were just chasing dreams

Finding out in the meantime what it means

To be young and wild and free

We were twenty three

We were staying up way too late on 21st

Living our lives like a second verse

Of a song that we all began

But nobody knows how it ends

There were summertime shows at the Exit In

Playing like we'll never get the chance again

Spotting big shots in the crowd

Hoping they'd find us out

And when the lights went down

We were singing

We were young and fun

Just another band on the run

We were just chasing dreams

Finding out in the meantime what it means

To be young and wild and free

We were twenty three

Living out our teenage fantasies

Dreaming about the possibilities

You never know

Who'll be on the cover of the next Rolling Stone, you see

And we were singing

We were young and fun

Just another band on the run

We were just chasing dreams

Finding out in the meantime what it means

To be young and wild and free

We were twenty three

It was brighter by the day and better by the minute

Having twice as much fun 'cause we were all in it

It was brighter by the day and better by the minute

Having twice as much fun 'cause we were all in it
