lyrics

Me and the moon again on our own
Tangled in the lights from the heavens
Like I'm wrapped in the arms of an old friend
They tell me I'm a stranger here-ought to go back home
Every face that I see in the window
Another soul on the street that I don't know

You are young, you are young, you are young
Your days stretch out before you
Learn to live them one by one
Learn to keep your head and lose your heart
Start again when it falls apart
You are young, you are young, you are young

So let me roll with that wild wind let it still my soul
As it heaves and it howls and it shakes
Through the trees and the rivers and the lakes
Teach me how to keep my peace before I get too old
Hold back my words when they're razors
Fear is a foe but don't hate her

And the years make you older
Keep your head up
Keep the weight off your shoulders

Don't make like a movie star as you chase your youth
Looking for the lies in the mirror
But nothing you can do brings you nearer
You drift further from familiar shores and the world you knew
So take what you can while you can take
Hope to your heart that it won't break
Sing with the wind when the trees shake

You are young, you are young, you are young
Your days stretch out before you
Learn to live them one by one
Learn to keep your head and lose your heart
Start again when it falls apart
You are young, you are young, you are young
