When We Were The New Boys

Lyrics and Music: Stewart, Savigar

With laughing eyes I do recall

Every face that crammed this hall

And in this room our hats were hung

And words were written and songs were sung

And we held our glasses high

And we dared to reach for the sky

And we never would grow old

When we were the new boys

And on these streets we were like kings

We'd roll and tumble, fight and sing

And in these smoky pubs the yarns were spun

And many a sweetheart was lost and won

And on these green fields we played for pride

No quarter given, no compromise

We were lovers and we were sons

When we were the new boys

When we were the new boys

Behind this cellar door on cheap guitars

We played our blues till the early hours

No one listening but a few old friends

We never dreamed it could ever end

This was our moment, this was our space

This was a jewel of a time to have graced

But they're all sweet memories now

When we were the new boys

When we were the new boys

All my life I've been running

down the side of this hill

But way down deep in my heart

don't want the water to ever be still

All these friends have long since gone

Blown and scattered like autumn leaves

Some are lawyers and some are thieves

Some are now behind the sun

But I'll never, never be afraid

From the cradle to the grave

I learned my lesson and I learned it well

When we were the new boys

When we were the new boys

And we held our glasses high

And we dared to reach for the sky

And we never would grow old

When we were the new boys

When we were the new boys
