Lilac eyes release me from the sting of the queen bee
Help me to forget about the lions chasing me
If a man among us has the notion that he's free
I entreat you to the challenge, stand on up and let's see
You get old
Old
Old
I never wanna get old

smiling and sun baked, I get jealous of myself
Like Shady Esperanto and the Young Hearts carousel
Hardest part has always been to resurrect my soul
Lightning in my youth and the newest way
Just got old
Old
It got old
I never wanna get old

And you try
And you try
And you try and you try
And you try and you try again
But you can't try enough

But you keep fighting
You keep on fighting me
You keep on fighting
Don't you know you already won?

It's summer in the city, we were hanging on the lawn
Talking all the time about where the time had gone
It's not the way I thought it'd, it's not what I was told
I got a young heart and I don't wanna
Get old
I never wanna get old
You get old
I never wanna get old
I never wanna get old
I never wanna get old
I'm never gonna get old
I'm never gonna get old

And you try
And you try
And you try and you try
And you try and you try
And you try and you try again
But you can't try enough

    General CommentWhat a phenomenal song. I'm surprised there isn't a discussion of the lyrics here.
