lyrics

Live young

GDEm. -chorus
CGDEm. -verse

If age is really about
how old we feel inside
Then I'm gonna die young
No matter how long my life
And if I don't die happy
If I didn't live carefree
Then I'm giving you permission
To kill me

'cause I live each moment
One at a time
Never looking forwards
Rarely looking behind
'cause there's nothing less productive
Than worrying about what might be or have been
Why waste the time when it's short enough
You could be out there living your dreams

And if age is really about
How old we feel inside
Then I'm gonna die young
No matter how long my life
And if I don't die happy
If I didn't live carefree
Them I'm giving you permission
To kill me

What are dreams anyway
Something to be ignored
Until you're old, you're washed up
Tiered and bored
In this life you regret
Not what you did but what you did not
Take the leap and if you fall flat
Well at least you gave it a shot

If age is really about
how old you feel inside
Then I'm gonna die young
No matter how long my life
and if I do t die happy
If I didn't live carefree
Them I'm giving you permission
To kill me

Because life isn't about money
Power or fame
It's about standing atop mountains
Screaming out your name
It's about loving and losing
Taking both in your stride
Knowing when to fight your corner
Knowing when to swallow your pride

If age is about how old
You feel inside
Then I'm gonna die young
No matter how long my life

And if I don't die laughing
With a smirk across my face
Then you might as well just kill me now
Because it'll all have been a waste.
