LYRICS: 

Whatever happened to 
The dreams that we once knew 
Whatever happened to us 
Did we grow up too fast? 
Well, I don’t want to be 
Whatever they decided for me 
And I don’t want to feel 
The way it’s making me feel 

We are, we are, we are 
We are born to the stars, we are 
We are never to stop 
Never to stop 
Even when it scares us 
We are, we are, we are 
We are given a chance we are 
We are never to stop 
Never to stop 
We are the only chance we’ve got 

Whatever happened to 
The brave and beautiful 
The hope in songs & books 
Discovering the universe 
Well I don’t want to be 
Their sensible version of me 
And I don’t want to feel 
The way it’s making me feel 

Whatever happened to 
The dreams that we once knew 
Whatever happened to our childlike wonder 
I need to feel the light 
The hunger for this life 
The beauty lies inside 
So go and find it
