Mojave Rain

Only The Young

Look back in silence
The cradle of your old life
Is there in the distance
Losing it's greatest prize

Nothing is easy
Nothing is sacred, why?
Where did the bow break?
It happened before your time

And there were people there
Lovely as you'd ever care, tonight
Maybe you can start again
Laughing in the open air
Have yourself another dream tonight
Baby you can start again

Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows on your own, own
Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows on your own, own

Mother it's cold here
Father thy will be done
Thunder and lightning
Are crashing down
They got me on the run
Direct me to the sun

Redemption keep my covers clean tonight
Baby we can start again

Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows on your own, own
Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows on your own, own

And the sun will shine again
And the sun will shine again
Are you looking for the sign?
Are you caught up in the lie?

Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows on your own, own
Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows on your own, own

Only the young can
Lost when the wind blows
Only the young can
Lost when the wind blows
