"Youth" as written by and Ed Roland....
You said
We would be golden
When we grow old

You said
We'd never be broken
When we grow old

But if a river could dry to dust
I guess the angels we learned to trust
Can fly away
And like a mountain can lose it's peak
I know another heart can change its beat
Quietly

You said
We'd never be parted
When we grow old

You said
I'll see you in heaven
When we grow old

But if a river could dry to dust
I guess the angels we learned to trust
Can fly away
And like a mountain can lose it's peak
I know another heart can change its beat
Quietly

So goodbye
Come tomorrow
Goodbye
Come tomorrow
Goodbye
Goodbye

Goodbye
Come tomorrow
Goodbye
Come tomorrow
Goodbye
Goodbye

You said
We would be golden
When we grow old

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my ex.. She told me she would never leave me. She was my best friend and the one person i trusted the most, but she slowly lost feelings for me eventually cheating on me and leaving me for another guy. It will never be the same, what we had.

    One part of the lyrics really hits home for me

    "And like a mountain can lose it's peak
    I know another heart can change its beat
    Quietly"

    Meaning, overtime things can change without you realizing it and before you know it, theyre gone.
