young and foolish lyrics – corinne bailey rae

i remember sitting back ’cause you said you had something to say
you told me that you had a secret, yeah yeah
promised to keep it safe
i kept it for you

and we talked and we laughed and we sat in the car; watched the world go past
i tried to dissuade you but you made up your mind
you were wise at 17

and there was nothing i could do and there was nothing i could say
i didn’t know why you asked me, you’re gonna do it anyway
everybody makes mistakes (ooh) and everybody feels the same
there was nothing i could do and there was nothing i could say

they said we grown up too fast, that we acted young and foolishly
i keep all this in mind when i recall the time
i have to disagree, and be here for you

oooh, and we talked and laughed and we sat in the park and watched the world go past
i tried to dissuade you but you know what you’re like
you were wise at 17

and there was nothing i could do and there was nothing i could say
i didn’t know why you asked me, you’re gonna do it anyway
everybody makes mistakes (ooh) and everybody feels the same
there was nothing i could do and there was nothing i could say

birds in the tree sing a song for me
about being young and foolish and naive
i haven’t changed that much from what i see
i was only trying to make things right

and there was nothing i could do and there was nothing i could say
i didn’t know why you asked me, you’re gonna do it anyway
everybody makes mistakes (ooh) and everybody feels the same
there was nothing i could do and there was nothing i could say

and there was nothing i could do and there was nothing i could say
i didn’t know why you asked me, you’re gonna do it anyway
everybody makes mistakes (ooh) and everybody feels the same
there was nothing i could do and there was nothing i could say…
