I'm not as good as I used to be at the late nights, but just look at me I'm staking a claim in a young man's game tonight
Is it something that my old heart fears? Missed time, chances, lost years That means I'm taking aim at a young man's game tonight
One more chance to leave a mark Imagining the answers in the dark Such a simple step into the smoke and the light tonight
But who'd have thought I'd have turned this page? Should I act this out or act my age? Am I happy I came to the young man's game, Where the bouncers know me by my name, tonight?
Oh I could I work this room I could make some noise Let's hear it for the girls and for the boys For a moment be the same in the young man's game tonight
We're drinking Jaeger bombs but we're still on our feet Heroes in a wild conceit Fingering fame in the young man's game tonight
But every mirror just tells the time Can you name a good fighter over 49? I should douse my flame for the young man's game tonight
Take off this paper crown And put these violins down And renounce my claim on the young man's game tonight

"Bittersweet Symphony" by The Verve samples an obscure orchestral arrangement of the 1965 Rolling Stones song "The Last Time." The Verve had to sign away most of the royalties before they could release the song.
"Come Dancing" by The Kinks was inspired by the older sister of Ray Davies, who would make guys take her out dancing and spend their money on her, only to send them home frustrated with just a peck on the cheek.
