“When We Were Young,” the lead single off her sophomore album People We Become, out February 10. Fun Fact: “When We Were Young” features background vocals from former Doobie Brother and esteemed solo artist Michael McDonald. “Jo Harman is yet another example of the rich lineage of great female soul singers to come from Great Britain,” McDonald says. “To be counted among these supremely talented women you have to really have it ‘goin’ on,’ which she surely does! It was my great privilege to work with her.” Jo Harman says: “‘When We Were Young’ is somewhat about maturity and growing up, losing the innocence of youth, as it were. It also talks to the deterioration of a relationship too, the loss of that time when things were so much simpler and carefree in the early stages. The Nashville musicians really brought the song to life with their wonderful playing and, unexpectedly having the great Michael McDonald feature on it was a dream for me; he’s simply an incredible artist and his own songs really speak to me like no other. I can’t wait to play ‘When We Were Young’ when I make my U.S. debut at Joe’s Pub in New York City in March.”

Song Lyrics:

How close can we get till we let go
And we now it's still away
And I know how it feels to have to give it all away
There's no no hiding the pain
It's in there but trouble and I know how it feels
To brace yourself for all of a change

Cause we're out of time
And I wish you back in line
And I smile like you do when everything's going wrong
And I start to feel older and older

When we were young it was oh so easy then
When we were young we were never ever spent
But I always knew from a sense that I got
That we would forfruit from this ??
Cause when we were young all the worry was left for getting old

How far to keep this whole world apart
Stick it right together
And I know how it feels
It ain't another thing to me

Cause we're out of time
And I wish you back in line
And I smile like you do when everything's going wrong
And I start to feel older and older

When we were young it was oh so easy then
When we were young we were never ever spent
But I always knew from a sense that I got
That we would forfruit from this ??

Cause when we were young all the worry was left for getting old
When the brave has past
And I'm moving on baby
Love I feel for you for so long
Will soon enough for me to go on and on
Hold on
We're gonna turn it around
And I smile like you do when everything's going wrong
And I start to feel older and older

When we were young it was oh so easy then
When we were young we were never ever spent
But I always knew from a sense that I got
That we would forfruit from this ??
Cause when we were young all the worry was left for getting old
When we were young baby
When we were young
