Track Name: Our Song is Still Young
You said you're scared of growing up, of losing years
That you don't want to give it up (it's just a fear)
And the wrinkle by your eye is sinking in
But you're so full of life (so sing, sing) because

Your song is still young
Your song is still young
Your song is still young
Your song isn't done

If I had the chance to go way back in time
and sing a day again, I would decline
I'd rather keep moving ahead and run with you
and if we get there in the end
I'll sing anew that

Our song is still young...

And when my vision gives out and my body's weak
And when your hair is turned gray and you've wrinkled cheeks
we'll lie out in the open field and count the stars
and whisper (one last time)
the words we know by heart
Track Name: O Sweet Relief
Thought to thought,
Wound up like a little toy car
You’ll run so fast until your sure collapse

"Come to me, all who are weary
and I will give you rest"

You interact like running out of time’s a sure fact
It’s in the back of your head even now

And those who see, always shake their heads knowingly
Or split a seam, but never make a sound

"Come to me, all who are weary
and I will give you rest"
Taste and see, He is a verdant tree
who bears the fruit of peace

Even now, even though you’re not
Stuffed up, bottled in, enough
Every word that you write applies
Every lustful thought must die

Even now, you’ve progressed to this
Every lesson you’ve learned a gift

-- you can still inflict
the most heartless of stings
a brokenhearted soul must sing.
