Young Folks
Peter Bjorn and John Lyrics


If I told you things I did before
Told you how I used to be
Would you go along with someone like me?
If you knew my story word for word
Had all of my history
Would you go along with someone like me?

I did before and had my share
It didn't lead nowhere
I would go along with someone like you
It doesn't matter what you did
Who you were hanging with
We could stick around and see this night through

And we don't care about the young folks
Talkin' 'bout the young style
And we don't care about the old folks
Talkin' 'bout the old style too
And we don't care about their own faults
Talkin' 'bout our own style
All we care 'bout is talking
Talking only me and you

Usually when things has gone this far
People tend to disappear
No one will surprise me unless you do

I can tell there's something goin' on
Hours seems to disappear
Everyone is leaving I'm still with you

It doesn't matter what we do
Where we are going to
We can stick around and see this night through

And we don't care about the young folks
Talkin' 'bout the young style
And we don't care about the old folks
Talkin' 'bout the old style too
And we don't care about their own faults
Talkin' 'bout our own style
All we care 'bout is talking
Talking only me and you

And we don't care about the young folks
Talkin' 'bout the young style
And we don't care about the old folks
Talkin' 'bout the old style too
And we don't care about their own faults
Talkin' 'bout our own style
All we care 'bout is talking
Talking only me and you

Talking only me and you

Talking only me and you

Talking only me and you

We were together for a decade- since we were kids.
He did some things and treated me horribly.
I finally called it quits in 03/2022.
He came back to me this past October.

First verse is spot on [about how we both felt and talked about].
We’re now planning our future - our style.

This is entirely true; I wish you the best.
Fck the saying, but it’s unfortunately true - if it’s meant to be, it’ll happen.

This song! Such a party! I (slightly) remember being wasted, bars closing up, meeting up with a friend crossing the street, and instead of going home, sharing headphones and having a dance party to this song on repeat in the median. We didn't care...

Johnny77mutt

This song hasn’t aged at all. Still feels fresh after all these years.

Was Wasnt

Good indie rock will do that.

7lightcraft

Other than the musical parts of it being great and unique and catchy; it's the lyrics being timeless

Nathan Windom

Absolutely timeless
