Lyrics:

Rulers

When we were young,
barely seventeen,
we chased the sun.
We were not aware
of all the dangers.
We were all so bold.
We were drenched in ourselves,
yeah we were young.

But now
all our fears
have gained their ground.

(Chorus)
You and I
We were the rulers but now we hide -
Afraid to die.
Make it go away,
I pray you'll make it go away.


Backdoor open -
Midnight strategies.
We had broken
all conformity
with our adventures.
We were made of gold.
We were prized by ourselves,
yeah we were young.

But now
all our tears
have run their rounds.

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
*Instrumental*

And I'm craving someone's youth.
And I'm blaming it all on you.

'Cause you see,
it was meant to be
for a while.
No denial.


When we were young,
barely seventeen,
we chased the sun.
But right at the end
We got burned.
