You finally fade away
Your face it fades of grace
You know the war I rage
But you take the holy way

I took away from you
The queens you never drew
The heart you hold's a waste
The words that make you say

Hey, where ya going
Whatcha doing
You're leaving…

(x2)
When you were young
You fell right into love
When you were young
And no one stopped you

You finally fade away
Your face it fades of grace
You fought the war I waged
Correct and stolen hate

I'll take away from you
The things you never knew
The heart you hold's a waste
Her words don't mean a thing

Hey, where ya going
Whatcha doing
You're leaving

(x2)
When you were young
You fell right into love
When you were young
And no one stopped you

(I will… I will stop you)

(x2)
When you were young
You fell right into love
When you were young
And no one stopped you

(x2)
Oh, when you were young
You fell right into love
When you were young
And no one stopped you

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this one. I think this song sounds ten times better live then it is recorded. I say this about all of their songs, but I love this one dearly.
