Urban, Keith - We Were Lyrics

We were just a couple years short of the age by my name on a fake ID
And still, 'bout a hundred away from the day your daddy said you could run with me
We were a couple of line-steppers who just couldn't wait to step over the line
Never thinking we wouldn't last, I was your first and you were mine

And we were leather jackets, hangin' on to a Harley, two heartbeats in the moonlight
We were, both feet hanging out over the edge of the water tower skyline
At least there's a little bit of sweet in the bitter, though a part of me is always gonna miss it
I am who I am, I just miss who I was when we were

We were gonna make it work, little baby had it all laid out in her mind
By the time we knew time was running out we'd done run out of time
But we were downtown Saturday night, last call, cover band
'Til the last song played, never thought we'd fade like the stamp on the back of her hand

We were, her on my shoulders, lighter in the air, pour some sugar on me
We were a top town in Johnson's field when she whispered that she wants me
At least there's a little bit of sweet in the bitter, though a part of me is always gonna miss it
I am who I am, I just miss who I was when we were

We were leather jackets, hangin' on to a Harley, two heartbeats in the moonlight
We were, both feet hanging out over the edge of the water tower skyline
At least there's a little bit of sweet in the bitter, though a part of me is always gonna miss her
I am who I am, I just miss who I was when we were
Yes, I do

Friends say "Oh well, let that ship sail, you've gotta let go of her"
Just wasn't meant to be, but somewhere down deep I still believe that we were

    When I hear this I think of all of my best friends who I moved away from. I miss those good times we had together. We were basically brothers. Sadly had to all part ways:(

  12. Kelly Houlahan

    This is awesome. I love how they did it all in one take. That was probably really hard to do. I also like the part when he gets on the phone. :-) Really cool video. Love Keith Urban, he needs to make more songs like this and less poppy stuff like The Fighter or Coming Home.

  13. Lisa Cooper

    Keith, you always know how to hit right to the heart. But I do love your music, even if sometimes one of your songs make me cry. Still gonna keep right on playing them and keep on listening.

  14. Sonya Lynne

    Love him and he plays a sweet guitar plus all other stringed instruments!

  15. J Silver

    He never fails to kick ass and does it right every-time!

  17. Susan m

    Does anyone else think he sounds like Eric Church in this song.

  18. Lauren Hall

    This song just flows so well! I listen to it and think back to how the old classic country was sung. This is like a modern version of classic. The new soft door opening to a new era of country music. Just love it!

  19. manuela mauder


  20. Wendy Bridgman

  31. Bear Girl

    Beautifully written and performed!!🎶💜

  32. Squash Head

    Perfect timing I fee this song so much right now. Going through a brake up I caused and I still love her more then life it’s self. She is falling in love with someone else. I can’t stop thinking of her and our good times. I can’t believe she is sharing special moments with someone else when it was me she shared those times with just a few months ago. I fear I will always have this pain because there was a time we could have been together forever. I will always regret not realizing this until she was gone.

  33. Suzy Fick

    EPIC, beautifully delivered. Perfect for this Christmas holiday season. This song touches my soul, brings such joy and happiness.

  34. Rick Gonzalez

    💙always Monica I’ll never forget u

  37. sabine sabine

    Super grüße von germany

  38. Dj Steiner

    Going through hell with my girlfriend over something I did. I can’t lose her

  39. Bubblegum Playz

    Close to the end I saw that keith’s guitar looked like the pattern on an evoker in Minecraft who else sees that?

  40. Jennifer Madrid

    I just came here to speed up the video and see what happens

  48. Greg Simmons

    I just miss who I was when we were. This song makes me long for that long ago yesterday WHEN, we were. Well done Keith Urban

  49. pham nga

    Holding on to the past is a silly thing, but opening up to let someone else in is basically impossible. It’s crazy when wherever you go, whoever you meet, they all remind you of that one person. On the day you let go of his hand, you already knew that your heart would hardly open up to anyone else.

  50. Travis Batchelor

    Oh well, let that ship sail. Life is extremely humbling in every aspect. Don't sink let it sail 🖤

  51. Tater

    I only thing wrong with this song is that it ends!!

  52. Speaks Volumes

    There's that hot guy again! Yeah(-:

  53. Boaz Baggins

    ‘Vegan leather jackets holdin onto a electric Harley’ - it’s better for people, animals & the planet. ; )

  54. Jace 67

    I feel like he should have won a reward at the CMAs or ACMs yesterday

    Theresa Marie

    I agree. Keith wirhout a doubt should have won. Ummm age looks good on this gorgeous man. Besides his Talent making him super sexy

    Speaks Volumes

  57. anthony joseph

    It's my first time hearing this country song and I already love it👌. Reminds of my ex girlfriend who had to move so far away 😔.

  58. Mary Sagraves

    We were my husband and me. Lost him to cancer but this song makes me think of us. We were steam. Half of me is gone. I miss when we were

    Mary Sagraves

    Meant to say a Team

  70. Lyndi Delzeith

    This song creates an image in my head. It's like reading a really good book where you understand and you can create the scenario in your head. But that's the thing of a song. A song is story. That you listen to

  71. relaxbg8

    Urban, these movements, cut neckline, hairstyles are very feminine. I always have mixed feelings about his orientation when I look at him. I feel sorry for NIC. She is not such a cool person.

  72. Chris Shade

    I loooooove this at 146 llove the part

  73. relaxbg8

    great lyrics, congratulations Eric, because almost all the glory belongs to Keith, and yet he is only the performer of this song.

  74. Clifford Duzz

    And what the hell's on your back

  75. Clifford Duzz

    Look at Keith he thinking he knows WTF that mixing board even does at all but hey Great song though

  89. Denise E

  90. englandportugal91


  91. Tony Reyes

    You'll think of me

  92. misteroz

    Full disclosure, I’ve never been a massive fan of KU but this one blew me away.

  93. grace s

    This is one of those songs you play at 3am when you’re sobbing about the person you fell in love with but you know that they will never fall in love with you. It hits hard.

    Stephanie Heywood

    Hard to fall in love with anybody new when u can't fall out of it

    Country Boy

    True Stephanie

    Barry Newell

    Grace you have think that you are special and if they cant see that then its their lost. If you have a good heart then you deserve the person who sees that and wants you. Just find the person who loves for the right reasons.

    Antonio Cruz

    The hardest part is when she tells you she doesn't love you anymore and can't explain why

  94. rama devi
