[Verse 1]
Hey, once upon a younger year
When all our shadows disappeared
The animals inside came out to play
Hey, When face to face with all our fears
Learned our lessons through the tears
Made memories we knew would never fade

[Pre-Chorus]
One day my father he told me
Son, don't let this slip away
He took me in his arms, I heard him say
When you'll get older
Your wild heart would live for younger days
Think of me if ever you're afraid

[Chorus]
He said, one day you'll leave this world behind
So live a life you will remember
My father told me when I was just a child
These are the nights that never die
My father told me

[Verse 2]
When your past starts pouring down
Light a fire they can't put out
Carve their name into the shining stars
He said go venture far beyond the shores
Don't forsake this life of yours
I'll guide you home no matter where you are

[Pre-Chorus]
One day my father he told me
Son, don't let this slip away
When I was just a kid, I heard him say
When you'll get older
Your wild heart would live for younger days
Think of me if ever you're afraid

[Chorus]
He said, one day you'll leave this world behind
So live a life you will remember
My father told me when I was just a child
These are the nights that never die
My father told me

These are the nights that never die
My father told me
My father told me
