“Born Young” Lyrics

You were born young, seeking something like the sun.
I was born off – a little soft, a lot of lost.
It will be much harder than it will seem, but haven’t we
both often dreamed?

Hues of dawn cast – the oven gas, the candle crack.
It’s all so fast, I hesitate to even ask…
It will go and come again, if we can hold.
Haven’t we both often known? Don’t we come into our own?

Haven’t we both often dreamed?
I mean, haven’t we?

Flash your cracked teeth – there is nobody here but me!
Who knows we two? There never was a one but you.
It will cut down deep, though, like a life, it will heal clean.
Haven’t we both often dreamed?

You were born young.
It’s all so fast.
I was born off.
You and I, we were born young.
