You Are Young

Album: Strangeland (2012)
  • Fearful child, have faith in brighter days
    Stay home 'til this darkness fades away
    Lie still beside me
    I'll hold you now, I'll hold you forever

    Winter's hand will freeze your heart again
    Doors will close, no time to start again
    Nothing is given
    Except the ties that hold us together

    Lay down your load 'cause every day it's gonna grow
    And busk in the sunshine
    Try to pay no mind
    Try to pay no mind at all

    To all the things that you don't know
    You've got time to realize you're shielded by the hands of love
    'Cause you are young

    Fading light may make a fool of me
    Courage fails, strengths slip away from me
    Lie still beside me
    And hold me now, and hold me forever

    Lay down your load cause every day it's gonna grow
    These days are sacred
    Hey now, don't be scared
    Baby, don't be scared at all

    Of all the things that you don't know
    You've got time to realize you're shielded by the hands of love
    'Cause you are young
    You've got time, you've got to try
    To bring some good into this world
    'Cause you are young
    'Cause you are young

    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh

    'Cause you are young Writer/s: JESSE QUIN, RICHARD DAVID HUGHES, TIMOTHY JAMES RICE-OXLEY, TOM CHAPLIN
