When We Were Younger
By ChelseyyVengeance

 



When We Were Younger

When I was younger, I always thought,
I could be someone, if I tried, enough.
When I was younger, my father said,
Wear a smile, show respect.
When I was younger, you never said,
When I was older, I'd feel helpless.
When I was younger, you shone the light,
Now that I'm older, it doesn't shine bright,
When I was younger, you always said,
That when I got older, you'd always be there,

I'm singing ooohhh, I'm singing ooohhh,
I'm singing ooohhh, I'm singing ooohhh,

When I was younger, I used to care,
About everything that, my father said,
When I was younger, you even told me,
To show evil, the upmost respect,
When I was younger, I never thought,
That when I was older, I'd see you give up,
Now that I'm older, I carry the torch,
Just promise you'll stand, you'll be strong.

I'm singing ooohhh, I'm singing ooohhh,
I'm singing ooohhh, I'm singing ooohhh,
I'm singing ooohhh, I'm singing ooohhh,
I'm singing ooohhh, I'm singing ooohhh.

When I was younger, I never thought,
When I was younger, I never thought,
When I was older, I'd fight your wars,
When I was older, I'd fight your wars,
I'd do it for you, I'd do it for you,
I'd do it for you, I'd do it for you,

When I was younger, I only dreamed,
That when I got older, you'd be proud of me,
When I was younger, I promised you both,
That when I got older, you'd be proud of me.

We were halfway through writing the album, but you couldn't wait any longer, you had to go be
with your wife, she was always adamant, that no matter how long it took, she would wait for you on
the other side, and I strongly believe you're both together now, as happy as you were on this earth.
It's a little hard at times to deal with the fact you're gone, but I think of how much you loved
each other, and I know more than anything that you're where you need to be.
Remember when I was seven and you asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, and I said I wanted
to make you proud, you laughed and said no matter what I chose to be, you would always be the
proudest grandfather to walk the earth. Well we picked up an award last week, and I had to dedicate
it to you, you and grandma. It's our first award as a band, and we had to go all the way to England
to get it. They even cheered when our name was called out as a nomination, we hadn't even won at
that point and they were going crazy!
We all miss you so much, to the point it hurts, you were always one of the first to bail us out when
we needed cash for demo's and t-shirts, always there to show your support, I'll never forget when I
saw you in the crowd at our first gig at Chain Reaction, you were going crazy, and all the kids were
like who the fuck is this dude? But I couldn't have been more proud, cause you always said
you were our biggest fan, and that if I was ever gonna make it big, it had to be in a band with my
best friends, and you were right. When we got that contract from Hopeless Records, and I ran to your
house in my bare feet to show you the contract, and you just smiled and said I told you so.
I miss you grandpa, I'll always miss you, we all will.
Give my love to grandma, and give her the biggest hug from us all.

I'll make you proud of me.
Love Brian.

A/N This was just something I wrote after listening to this song called When We Were Younger
by YouMeAtSix. Check it out, it's beautiful.
I just felt it was quite a fitting tribute.

Read and review?
I'll love you all forever
