So young and full of sparks
That feeling’s wearing off
They're few and far between the fractions
Keep focus, stay on track
Straight ahead and don't look back
Nothing to see here but distractions
Don't set your aim so far
You'll end up right back where you are
You need more mistakes to find direction

Believe you're good for something still
Though you hide the something well
You'll be running on empty soon
What the hell has got into you
Through what ever I'm by your side
We'll stick together, we'll be all right

Throw out the plan you had
That shape who you'd become instead
The consequence of all your actions
Throw caution to the breeze
Make some love or make believe
What you can do with your ambition
Live life to leave your mark
I was here, when you were not
Just make a mess of what you're given

    General Commentthis song reminds me of someone who is driving herself crazy striving for an extreme perfection.she looses the spark of her youth and is worn by setting the bar too high for herself.this perfectionist has a love that notices the void (what the hell has got into you) and promises to 'stick by her side' and remind her to 'throw caution to the breeze '

    this song is beautifully written. it gives me hope that one day i too will find someone who will be there for me when i am not
