Only the Young
Look back in silence
The cradle of your whole life
There in the distance
Losing its greatest pride

Nothing is easy
Nothing is sacred, why?
Where did the vow break?
It happened before your time

And there were people there, lovely as you'd ever care
Tonight, baby, you can start again, laughing in the open air
Have yourself another dream
Tonight, maybe we can start again

Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows on your own, oh
Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows on your own, oh

Mother, it's cold here
Father, thy will be done
Thunder and lightning are crashing down
They got me on the run, direct me to the sun

Redemption keeps my covers clean
Tonight, baby, we can start again

Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows on your own, oh
Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows on your own, oh

And the sun will shine again
And the sun will shine again
Are you looking for the sign?
Or are you caught up in the life?

Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows on your own, oh
Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows on your own, oh

Only the young can
Lost when the wind blows
Only the young can
Lost when the wind blows
