"Too Old to Die Young" as written by and Dylan Altman Will Hoge....
18 was a rocket ride
I lit the fuse and I held on tight
Every day was a Friday night
And I've got the scars to prove it

It all blew up at 25
Saw those telephone poles flying by
And I don't remember much that night
I'm just lucky I got through it

And I let it run like an open vein
Love the pleasure and curse the pain
Oh, the foolish things I've done
But I'm too old now to die young

Woke up alone at 35
Just across town from my ex-wife
I get my two kids every Friday night
And I work all week to do it

Their momma and me couldn't work it out
Oh, but that don't seem to matter now
They're all that I care about
And I got their love to prove it

And I let it run like an open vein
Love the pleasure and curse the pain
Oh, the foolish things I've done
But I'm too old now to die young

And I let it run like an open vein
Love the pleasure and curse the pain
Oh, the foolish things I've done
And I never thought I'd make it here
Wish I could live another hundred years
Oh, the foolish things I've done
But I'm too old now to die young
Too old now to die young
Oh, I'm too old now to die young
