when life was good lyrics – jason reeves

“when life was good”

love is easier when we are young
it’s easier letting it go
it’s easier hurting than being alone
if only i could’ve believed that time wouldn’t take you from me
then i would have never let you leave
and now it’s haunting me

i remember staying up late ’til our parents went to sleep
sneaking out the back door
meeting by the trees
taking our clothes off
jumping in the creek
that’s when life was good

i remember holding up the phone line talking ’bout nothing
drifting off to dream
waking up knowing we were young and still in love
and that’s when life was good

i’m realizing over the years that catching and counting my tears
and if i’m patient they will disappear
i’m ready to try it again
the fire of when it begins
the fight for a feeling that never ends
it goes on and on again

i remember staying up late ’til our parents went to sleep
sneaking out the back door
meeting by the trees
taking our clothes off
jumping in the creek
that’s when life was good

i remember holding up the phone line talking ’bout nothing
drifting off to dream
waking up knowing we were young and still in love
and that’s when life was good

that’s when life was good
that’s when life was good
i remember
i remember
i remember

yeah
i remember staying up late ’til our parents went to sleep
sneaking out the back door
meeting by the trees
taking our clothes off
jumping in the creek
that’s when life was good

i remember holding up the phone line talking ’bout nothing
drifting off to dream
waking up knowing we were young and still in love
and that’s when life was good

that’s when life was good
that’s when life was good
i remember
i remember
i remember

love is easier when we are young
it’s easier letting it go
it’s easier hurting than being alone
