Dying Youth
by 10 Years



Deep under the surface I keep the love
Older and aware of a hidden universe
I've prayed to be young, and prayed to be inspired
The words of your tongue blister like fire

I can't let you go, slow down, don't leave
Dying days of my youth, overtake me

There is a glimpse of death in your eyes
I am not prepared to let out those cries
I've prayed to stay young, but soon will be expired
So lost in denial

I can't let you go, slow down, don't leave
Dying day's of my youth, overtake me

Breach in her womb, sheltered from strife
Bearing the gifts, and burdens of life
I've prayed to stay young, but soon will be expired
An age of innocence, long since gone

I can't let you go, slow down, don't leave
Dying days of my youth, overtake me

Those who are looking backwards, chose to live as statues
Frozen, fractured, youthful laughter, fades

I can't let you go, slow down, don't leave
Dying days of my youth, overtake me

I can't let you go, slow down, don't leave
Dying days of my youth, overtake me
