Lyrics
Life after youth
Fading in twilight
The dawn of a criminal in bloom
First love
First forgiveness
We were delinquents
Freaks of a faded memory

Outlaws
When we were forever young
When we were outlaws
We're outlaws of redemption

Baby hooligans
We destroyed suburbia
When we were outlaws
The outlaws of forever

Scars
Broken hearts
Breaking in cars
Running in the light of the moon
Lost souls
Bottle rockets
All that we wanted is
A life beyond the stars

Outlaws
When we were forever young
When we were outlaws
We're outlaws of redemption baby

Hooligans
We destroyed suburbia
When we were outlaws
We outlaws are forever baby

I've got no supervision
Nothing will change my spirits raised to hell
I plead my innocence
I bleed my innocence
But that's my first defense when you are young

Outlaws
When we were forever young
When we were outlaws
We're outlaws of redemption baby

Hooligans
We destroyed suburbia
When we were outlaws
We outlaws are forever

I found a knife by the railroad track
You took a train and you can't go back
Forever now
Forever now
You'll roam
Song Meaning
"A swelling, wistful tune that looks back at the trio's teenage punk days, 'when we were outlaws/when we were forever young.' 'I was feeling nostalgic,' says Armstrong, 'thinking about when me and Mike would break into cars and steal tapes and lighters and shit like that.' The band sees it as a sequel of sorts to their 1992 track 'Christie Road,' which mined the same period of their lives." (Track by Track Guide, Rolling Stone)
