Lyrics



Do you remember when we moved out?

My mum said, "I love you, but it's a small house"

So we changed up and saved up

Gave up our town

We were dangerous, couldn't tame us

What's missing now?



Time

Suddenly we got no time

We're so busy doing life

That I miss your eyes on mine

Mine



If you just focus on me

Like we were sixteen

And plotting our lives

Can I wear your t-shirt

And sleep on you

While I dream of all the good times?



When we were sixteen

Like we were sixteen

Like we were sixteen



Do you remember the teacher said

You're too young, too stupid, don't lose your head

But years gone and we held on with the best intent

Just two kids who kicked it on MSN



Oh, time

Suddenly we got no time

We're so busy doing life

That I miss your eyes on mine

Mine



If you just focus on me

Like we were sixteen

And plotting our lives (When we were plotting our lives)

Can I wear your t-shirt

And sleep on you

While I dream of all the good times?



When we were sixteen

Like we were sixteen

Like we were sixteen



Let's take the love that we found

And give it back to ourselves

Sometimes these things don't work out

Sometimes there'll be no one else

They said we'd never even make it this far

But here we are

We're still counting stars

Like we were sixteen



Oh, when we were sixteen

We're still counting stars like we were sixteen



We're still counting stars like we were sixteen

The "total plays" shown on this page simply refers to the total number of times our archiving system has seen it being played since it was launched on the 28th of July 2014. It should not be relied upon as an exact figure for total all-time plays as the true figure could vary by quite a substantial amount.
