"Young Hearts Spark Fire" as written by and David Prowse Brian King....
We finished our old lives
Like we finished off the wine
Now we're used to staying up all night
Two hearts beating
Oh yeah, oh yeah

[Repeat: x2]
You can keep tomorrow
After tonight, we're not going to need it
Beat up (beat up)
Beat down (beat down)
Wet ground, but too drunk to feel it

[Repeat: x4]
We used to dream
Now we worry about dying

[Repeat: x2]
I don't want to worry about dying
I just want to worry about those sunshine girls

Young hearts
Spark fire
All night
Oh yeah, oh yeah

[Repeat: x2]
You can keep tomorrow
After tonight, we're not going to need it
Beat up (beat up)
Beat down (beat down)
Wet ground, but too drunk to feel it

[Repeat: x4]
We used to dream
Now we worry about dying

[Repeat: x5]
I don't want to worry about dying
I just want to worry about those sunshine girls

    General Commentbahoevel is completely wrong.

    the band was about to break up when they hit it big. They were not "living the life" at all.
    It's been said in interviews that basically the shows they were doing were in front of all their friends and that's it, so he wanted to keep the lyrics simple and not feel embarrassed talking about his current gf.

    this song is about partying though.
    It's about having a day job ("We finished our own lives"), and then going out anyways afterward and just getting shitfaced. (no quote needed i think, since half the song is about this haha)

    It's also about their struggle (or many peoples' struggle) to find direction once you're older. They were in a band just like they'd always dreamed ("We used to dream"), partying and having fun, but they are not making any headway, and they keep getting older and are beginning to realise it ("I don't wanna worry about dying"), and, like most in the same position, have decided to ignore it ("i just wanna worry about sunshine girls").

    excellent song by the way.

    General Commenti agree with manbands on tv normally bands with such insightful lyrics as these would totally be ignored but i guess i make an exception for these kids:D

    General CommentI don't know how i didnt see it,i mean of course this song has a meaning but it has a semi deep meaning dude,and its so obvious
    Pretty much its like this young couple was not going out but then now they are and then they use to just dream about being together and what life would be like together but now that they have today they don't need tomorrow and they are worried that they are going to die and will no longer be with each other and they jut want to go back to the time where they only worried about things that were trivial

    General CommentI doubt the lyrics were intended to be analyzed to the level that some of you seem to be doing it. When I think of Japandroids, I just think of being young, free, and having a good time.
    Sure their lyrics are awesome, but their purpose seems to be more in backing up the music than standing out on their own.

    General CommentI have a slightly different interpretation of this song. It seems plausible that the song is about living the rock and roll lifestyle, which, as kids, they used to dream about. This lifestyle, which they are now living, consists of hot girls, drinking and cocaine--the later of which they are "too drunk to feel it". They used to worry about how they would support themselves as adults; now, however, all they worry about is ODing on booze and drugs.
