In cart Not available Out of stock

Youth is a song born from a coming of age combined with the comprehension that eternal Youth grows not from flesh, but from your mind.

Lyrics

Youth is a dish best served warm
To save its flavor
Made to eat on the run
Born in the middle of a storm
Strength is our neighbor
Love is our illusive sun

We'll try to do the best we can
Though our days are numbered
Like truth written down in sand
Forgotten and remembered
All we hold within our hands
Is nothing without hope

And so we'll run through the fields
Knowing faith will have to follow
We push on despite our fears
To build a brighter day
We can not slow our pace
For in Youth there is no tomorrow
As we wrestle with our age
We smile and fade away

Youth is a mounting tidal wave
Soon to crash over
and wash towards the shore
Youth is a game we all have played
and a pill we've swallowed
Still it leaves the need for more

Still we'll try to do the best we can
Though we're growing weary
I may never understand
That's all right with me
Even our best laid plans
They're nothing but a pile of dreams

All we've left to do is
run through the fields
Knowing faith will have to follow
We push on despite our fears
To build a brighter day
We can not slow our pace
For in Youth there is no tomorrow
As we wrestle with our age
We smile and fade away

And know we've come so far
To be just where we are
And the more we fight our age
The more we become afraid
Yes this life that we lead
Is all we'll ever need
Youth is not your age
It's how much you believe

And so we'll run through the fields
Knowing faith will have to follow
We push on despite our fears
To build a brighter day
We can not slow our pace
For in Youth there is no tomorrow
As we wrestle with our age
We smile and greet the day
