Before You Were Young

Album: Ode To J. Smith (2008)
  • In the days before you were young
    We used to sit in the morning sun
    We used to turn the radio on
    What happened?
    We'd see our lies in the eyes of fate
    And take our cradles to the grave
    But even then we're never saved
    From danger

    And if you ever leave me come
    I will be there waiting
    Waiting for you know I will
    I love you for ever
    I'll never say never

    But I've only got two hands
    And I'll never learn to dance
    I'll never get a second chance
    Whatever
    I'll take the breath away from your sighs
    And wipe the tears away from your eyes
    And hope the fire never dies
    Inside you

    And if you ever leave me come
    I will be there waiting
    Waiting for you know I will
    I love you
    I love you
    I love you...

    In the days before you were young
    We used to sit in the morning sun
    We used to turn the radio on
    What happened? Writer/s: FRANCIS HEALY
