Lyrics of When We're Old

I know I’ll never forget that day when first time we met We’ve come a long way since then and I would do It all again From your very first smile I knew that I’d walk a mile See it’s for real when you know you never want to let go These are the reasons I want you to know (oh oh oh) You make this place feel like home These are the reasons I can’t let you go (oh oh oh) Let’s sing this song that we wrote When we’re old (oh oh oh) When we’re old (oh oh oh) No matter what comes our way I feel like you’re here to stay You were there right from the start and let me inside your heart After all this time, I hate the sound of goodbye And if you leave I would… These are the reasons I want you to know (oh oh oh) You make this place feel like home These are the reasons I can’t let you go (oh oh oh) Let’s sing this song that we wrote When we’re old (oh oh oh) When we’re old (oh oh oh) Right from our very first kiss I knew it’ll end up like this I’m not afraid to grow old if I have your hand to hold
