This teenage kid, I almost ran and hid
When he says to me I recognize you from TV
(You're all that I don't want to be)
Be aware that I really use to care
I'm no grocer of despair, in fact I'm lighter than the air
And you're so young, so wrong, so so long

Epitaph, a hostage to his craft
His talent down the drain

Spent his whole life on the train
(Just to get out of the rain)
Rain came down and washed away my youth
You thought that it would last
You thought it was the truth
But you're so young, so wrong, so so long

I read your book and I stole your look
And now it's sad how much like dad
You are a star who's burning out
No doubt, you burned out long ago
You know, you once stole the show

But now you steal my youth
Just to keep yourself alive, you are me at thirty five
I thought it best not to hold him to my breast
And say, sunshine, I'm not the only one who's dying
(Everything's going to be fine)

Fine, instead I let it all go to my head
I leaned across and said I too thought my should was dead
But I was young, I was wrong, I grew up, I wrote this song
You're so young, you're so wrong, so, so long
