  • I don't wanna get older
    Without your head on my shoulder
    On the day that you leave me
    I'll forever be bleeding, love
    As forever comes closer
    Hope the world will spin slower
    I don't wanna get older
    I don't wanna get older

    Stare at the photograph
    Suddenly takes me back
    The promises roll off your breath
    In your cocaine-coloured wedding dress
    Lost in the day-to-day
    You kiss away the pain
    Oh, every time you twist my lips
    My dear devoted delicate

    It's not worth it if I lose my one-way ticket for two
    Just me, just you

    I don't wanna get older
    Without your head on my shoulder
    On the day that you leave me
    I'll forever be bleeding, love
    As forever comes closer
    Hope the world will spin slower
    I don't wanna get older
    I don't wanna get older

    Our love is tailor made
    But we let the edges fade
    Your wicked smile, it says it all
    Mixed with my sad and cynical (Hmm)
    No tragedy at the end
    No, nothing Shakespearean
    It all comes flooding back again
    My dear devoted delicate

    It's not worth it if I lose my one-way ticket for two
    Just me, just you

    I don't wanna get older
    Without your head on my shoulder
    On the day that you leave me
    I'll forever be bleeding, love
    As forever comes closer
    Hope the world will spin slower
    I don't wanna get older
    I don't wanna get older
