 I said that when you met me I was 
C
 just dying
F
 I said it to no one. 
C
 I said it in silence.
Young, stay young.
And face dawn, all talk and quick.
Stunned, stay stunned.
Mind blown, and your jaw drops.
All these hateful people judging and hand-wringing.
Oh Lord, why don’t you bury me in all they call sinning?
Open up your heart, show me the place where love is missing.
How long have you been missing love?
I see all creation pulsing and diving up and twinning.
Now you have to lay me down because my head is spinning.
I try, try hard
To drop fear and 
Drop your guard.
Off, off love, off drugs;
Just feel it in your blood.
And I call to all my friends:
All the cracked-casette-tape-thrillers,
All the hand-inside-the-tillers,
And the hundred-dollar-billers.
Standing by the stone that was rejected by the builders.
There was drinking at the bar,
They carried from the burning building.
Never let it be said that he wasn’t willing.
Well no shit, I know you miss him, girl.
Then I’ll pass the edges of the earth and you make it wider.
When I see you’re crying,
Don’t you know it’s killing me?
Climb, climb up, way up
To see the sun.
One, one draw.
One life, one love.
You’ve only got one.
Young, stay young.
Don’t get tough,
Don’t get on with it.
Young, stay young
Heart breaking, sad when it’s gone.
I said when it’s gone.
When it’s gone.
Stay young.
Stay young.
