  • Advice for the young at heart
    Soon we will be older
    When we gonna make it work?

    Too many people living in a secret world
    While they play mothers and fathers
    We play little boys and girls
    When we gonna make it work?
    I could be happy
    I could be quite naive
    It's only me and my shadows
    Happy in our make believe
    Soon

    And with the hounds at bay
    I'll call your bluff
    'Cause it would be okay
    To walk on tiptoes everyday

    And when I think of you and all the love that's due
    I'll make a promise, I'll make a stand
    Cause to these big brown eyes, this comes as no surprise
    We've got the whole wide world in our hands

    Advice for the young at heart
    Soon we will be older
    When we gonna make it work?

    Love is a promise
    Love is a souvenir
    Once given
    Never forgotten, never let it disappear
    This could be our last chance
    When we gonna make it work?
    Working hour is over

    And how it makes me weep
    'Cause someone sent my soul to sleep

    And when I think of you and all the love that's due
    I'll make a promise, I'll make a stand
    Cause to these big brown eyes, this comes as no surprise
    We've got the whole wide world in our hands

    We've got the whole wide world in our hands
    We've got the whole wide world in our hands

    Advice for the young at heart
    Soon we will be older
    When we gonna make it work?

    Advice for the young at heart
    Soon we will be older
    When we gonna make it work?

    Working hour is over
    We can do anything that we want
    Anything that we feel like doing
