To be Young – Lyrics

Oh it was white sand and deep blue waves
We were running up to shore
Sun glints on sparkling faces
I don’t feel or see anymore
To be young

We’re just leaves, leaves, floating on down the stream
My job, my house, my car, my whole social scene
So high are the stakes, every move we make
Sends us down, down, down in that stream

Here in the only life I know
Those summer days rush out like warm air from my lungs
That’s just the way the story goes
All I’ve learned I still wish I didn’t know
All I didn’t know, oh, when we were young

When I was young I told myself I’d keep my friends
They were good and I was true, didn’t need to end
Oh how they’ve risen they fallen
Like the sun circles round
Guess I’ve done just as well as anyone
Hard to accept it, I’m just anyone

But here in this only life I know
Those summer days rush out like water from the lawn
It’s just the way the story goes
Stand in line now and talk about the day
When we were young

My conscious could’ve sunbathed
Every day in my bright blue mind
Now it’s crowded with guilt and purpose and
I just want it all aligned

Here in the only life I know
Not taking orders I don’t know which way to go
That’s just the way the story goes
And I’ll be damned if I’m to live it out alone
Here in the only life I know
With any waste of time it hits so close to home
It’s just the way the story goes
And I’ll be damned if I’m to live it out alone
I won’t live it out alone

We’re just leaves, leaves, floating on down the stream
My job my house my clothes my whole social scene
So high are the stakes
So high are the stakes, every move we make
Sends us down, down, down in that stream
And one day, one day, one bright clear day
I think we all might just disappear
Sink on down in that river cold and clear, my dear
On down like leaves in an icy stream
On down like leaves to the bottom of an icy stream
