    Title of Song: We Did It When We Were Young.
    Artist: The Gaslight Anthem.

    Lyrics:

    Don't write me no more letters, my mailbox is full of bombs
    Between you and the kooks on my block
    I don't remember the good times, I wasn't there when you were kind
    And my wife had some dogs in our yard

    And I cannot hold a candle for every pretty gun
    We were strangers many hours and I missed you for so long
    When we were liars, lovers in combat
    Faded like your name on those jeans that I burned

    But I am older now
    And we did it when we were young
    I am older now
    And we did it when we were young

    There are no reasons to believe, I buried my faith in another plot
    Where your heart and your claws will not find
    And I don't feel you or recall, I put your bones out in the yard
    For someone else to be called and caught by

    And I cannot hold a candle for every pretty gun
    We were strangers many hours and I missed you for so long
    When we were liars, lovers in combat
    Faded like your name on those jeans that I burned

    But I am older now
    And we did it when we were young
    I am older now
    And we did it when we were young

    I am older now
    And we did it when we were young
    I am older now
    And we did it when we were young

    Part of creating peace and harmony is to first be at peace with ourselves. We cannot give out what we don't have and that's one of the major reasons I love this song. The artist regrets his past life which might mean many things to most people; bad break up, wrong decisions, regrets but he got to a point in his life where he found peace of mind with who he is, with his wife, amazing dog and putting the past where it belonged; the past.

    Most people don't let the past stay where it is which makes it difficult for them to spread love, peace, harmony and the fragrance of their goodness. This song is colourful and a reminder that we should let go of the past; things we cannot change and throw our kindness around like confetti.


    Thank you for your time.
