  • Hey, once upon a younger year
    When all our shadows disappeared
    The animals inside came out to play
    Hey, when face to face with all our fears
    Learned our lessons through the tears
    Made memories we knew would never fade

    One day my father—he told me,
    "Son, don't let it slip away"
    He took me in his arms, I heard him say,

    "When you get older
    Your wild life will live for younger days
    Think of me if ever you're afraid."

    He said, "One day you'll leave this world behind
    So live a life you will remember."
    My father told me when I was just a child
    These are the nights that never die
    My father told me

    When thunder clouds start pouring down
    Light a fire they can't put out
    Carve your name into those shinning stars
    He said, "Go venture far beyond the shores.
    Don't forsake this life of yours.
    I'll guide you home no matter where you are."

    One day my father—he told me,
    "Son, don't let it slip away."
    When I was just a kid I heard him say,

    "When you get older
    Your wild life will live for younger days
    Think of me if ever you're afraid."

    He said, "One day you'll leave this world behind
    So live a life you will remember."
    My father told me when I was just a child
    These are the nights that never die
    My father told me

    These are the nights that never die
    My father told me Writer/s: Ash Pournouri, John William Feldmann, Jordan Matthew Suecof, Nicholas Michael Furlong, Tim Bergling, Gabe Benjamin
