Nothing to lose is a path you can choose
And it feels just right at the time
Then one day you awake with a fear you can't shake
You're an actor forgetting your lines

You were a star when you started so bright eyed and ready
But now you just can't seem to shine
Nothing to lose is a path that you choose
And it feels just right at the time

But can you still remember your very first kiss?
Or the future you hoped for when we were still kids?
Stay young, stay young

There are constants like gravity, heartbreak and shame
You can never out run them, they're part of your name
Like lessons you learn from a past you can't change
Stay young, stay young

For a lifetime of paying dues and ruthless reviews
Yeah, it's hard not to end up a cynic
When everyone's too scared to walk in your shoes
But can work up the nerve to be critics

Oh, can you still remember your very first kiss?
Or the future you hoped for when we were still kids?
Stay young, stay young

No, don't lose your heart
Don't lose your soul
Don't give up control

It's the business end of a loaded gun
Facing tomorrows of black useless lungs
With nothing but lies left on tips of our tongues
Stay young, stay young

Oh, can you still remember your very first kiss?
Or the future you hoped for when we were still kids?
Trying to keep up our innocence in this fucked up world
Stay young, stay young, stay young, stay young, stay young

Nothing to lose is a path that you choose
And it feels just right at the time
Then one day you awake with a fear you can't shake
You're an actor forgetting your lines
