Too Young To Die

Original version (4:20)

Too young to die but too old to survive -
I’ve spent too long trying to write this song.
The tune is okay but the words are all wrong,
Maybe it’s time for a change.

I’ve lived a lie since the day I arrived,
Building my dreams, grand romantic schemes.
Now I’m twenty-eight but I’m still in my teens,
Well maybe it’s time for a change.

Now it’s time to say goodbye
To my suit, my shirt, my tie.
My youth seems to have passed me by
And I’m too young to die.

I will not weep for what we leave behind.
I must break free from that part of me
That values the art over the humanity.
I think it’s time for a change.

I thought that I was doing fine
But now I’ve changed my mind

’Cause
Now its time to say goodbye Now its time to say goodbye
To my suit, my shirt, my tie. To my suit, my shirt, my tie.
My youth seems to have passed me by My youth seems to have passed me by
And I’m too young to die. And I’m too young to die.

Too young to die,
Yeah!
Too young,
Too young,
Yeah, yeah, yeah!

Maybe it’s time for a change.
