When | for the past

We were twenty-year-olds and we went for Tea
and it was fun and it wasn’t something twenty-year-olds did.
We are thirty-year-olds now and we go for Tea
and I wonder if it’s something thirty-year-olds did.
Do you miss your Twenties? Like I miss the not feeling young
yet probably looking terribly so.
Like I miss being thought to be young
yet never feeling like I had enough time of my life left.

We were Twenty-year-olds and they went to clubs
and to parties and we never did.
Never really felt like I missed out on that even now.
We are Thirty-year-olds and they go to more expensive bars
and pubs and drink the more bitter stuff now
yet we never did.
We are Thirty-year-olds now and they zip around on the roads
in their flashy cars, not the poor students anymore but
yet I felt that was freedom.
