Never thought to light a candle
Never thought I had to gamble
I was feeling Mickey Mantle, wasted
Driving up the 1, I’m frantic
Turn into an old romantic
I was sleeping in the attic, waiting

Can’t nobody ever see?
Don’t make a mess of me
I ain’t too old to give a shit
I could turn a train around
I could take your country down
I ain’t too young to regret

Forever, forever, forever,
I ain’t too young
Forever, forever,
I ain’t too young
Forever, forever,
I ain’t too young

I was in New York, living
Waiting in the cold Thanksgiving
Hoping I could ever dare to embrace it
I could play a part uptown,
I could keep my nose on the ground
Never thought I’d ever care just to face it

I could never understand
I was just a foolish fan,
Taken to the edge just to see
Who said your mother was right?
Who said your friends were just fine?
Who could tell you that I was free?

Forever, forever, forever,
I ain’t too young.
Forever, forever,
I ain’t too young
Forever, forever,
I ain’t too young
Forever, forever,
I ain’t too young

I was in New York, living
Waiting in the cold Thanksgiving
Hoping I could ever dare to embrace it
