[Verse 1]
We chase the rising sun
Before we learn to run
We are, we are the young, oh yeah
The cigarettes of hopeful dreamers
Are burning out the air we breathe
Like nicotine for our beliefs
That we live, we live for something more
But the truth is on the ground
You better settle down
To see what’s right
So I’ve come to figure out
That years are not the mountains we all fear to climb

[Pre-Chorus]
And watching the days go by
Is like counting train cars at a railroad light
And life’s not made by the nights
That pass while we’re waiting for change to arrive

[Chorus]
But it’s never too late to wake up and break yourself free
Fall down just to make yourself bleed
Sing loud till your lungs give out
‘Cause we are, we are, we are, we are the young

[Verse 2]
Sometimes the path we run
Leads us right through the midday sun
We’re blistered and broken, twisted but hoping
We just might survive it
So take the pain but don’t let it break you
Let it carry you away and shake your soul
Like an earthquake inside your mind

[Pre-Chorus]
And watching the days go by
Is like counting train cars at a railroad light
And life’s not made by the nights
That pass while we’re waiting for change to arrive

[Chorus]
But it’s never too late to wake up and break yourself free
Fall down just to make yourself bleed
Sing loud till your lungs give out
‘Cause we are, we are, we are, we are the young

[Pre-Chorus]
And watching the days go by
Is like counting train cars at a railroad light
And life’s not made by the nights
That pass while we’re waiting for change to arrive

[Chorus]
But it’s never too late to wake up and break yourself free
Fall down just to make yourself bleed
Sing loud till your lungs give out
‘Cause we are, we are, we are, we are the young

[Outro]
You’re just sitting at a greenlight
