Wild Young Hearts

Album: Wild Young Hearts (2009)
  • And while the city sleeps
    I won't weep because I didn't keep
    My boyfriend and the summer's end, is here again
    And the leaves are golden
    Under the grand silver birch tree

    While we're thinking 'bout the people we meet
    Dancing feet, wasters on the cover of a magazine
    People you've kissed, people you lust
    And the one's that you might not
    Ever remember what's the use

    I'm not what I was last summer
    Not who I was in the spring
    Tell me, tell me, tell me when will we learn
    We love it and we leave it and we watch it burn
    Damn these wild young hearts
    Damn these wild young hearts

    Now that the city's awake, my heart aches
    Oh what a silly mistake it seems I've made
    You left your keys under my bed
    Left a thumpin' in my head
    I would say sorry, what's the use

    Cause, I'm not what I was last September
    And I don't wear the same robes in May
    We know we shouldn't do it, but we do it anyway
    We know we might regret it but it seemed OK
    Damn this wild young heart
    Damn this wild young heart
    Damn this wild young heart

    If now is forever then what's to prove
    Cause it won't be the same next summer
    And I guess I'll see you in the spring
    Somebody tell me, tell me, tell me, when will I learn
    I love it and I leave it and I watch it burn
    Damn this wild young heart
    I told you damn this wild young heart
    Damn this wild young
    Tell me, tell me, tell me when will I learn
    Damn this wild young heart Writer/s: JOHN FORTIS, JAMES MORRISON, DANIEL SMITH, SHINGAI SHONIWA
