  • Another night in any town
    You can hear the thunder of their cry
    Ahead of their time
    They wonder why

    Shadows of a golden age
    A generation waits for dawn
    Brave carry on
    Bold and the strong

    Only the young can say
    They're free to fly away
    Sharing the same desire
    Burnin' like wildfire

    They're seein' through the promises
    And all the lies they dare to tell
    Is it heaven or hell?
    They know very well

    Only the young can say
    They're free to fly away
    Sharing the same desire
    Burnin' like wildfire

    Only the young can say
    They're free to fly away
    Sharing the same desire
    Burnin' like wildfire

    Only the young can say
    Only the young can say
    Only the young can say
    Only the young can say
    Young can say
