Life is timeless, days are long when you're young You used to fall in love with everyone Any guitar and any bass drum Life is a drink and you get drunk when you're young Life is new and there's things to be done You can't wait to be grown up Acceptance into the capital world You pull on some weed, then you pull on someone when you're young
But you find out life isn't like that It's so hard to comprehend Why you set up your dreams to have them smashed in the end
But you don't mind you've got time on your side And they're never gonna make you stand in line You're just waiting for the right time
You're fearless and brave, you can't be stopped when you're young
You swear you're never ever gonna work for someone No corporations for the new age sons Tears of rage roll down your face But still you say "it's fun"
And you find out life isn't like that It's so hard to understand Why the world is your oyster but your future's a clam
It's got you in its grip before your born It's done with the use of a dice and a board They let you think you're king but you're really a pawn
You're fearless and brave, you can't be stopped when you're young You used to fall in love with everyone Any guitar and any bass drum
