Dave Barnes - Twenty Three Lyrics

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
