Young Forever

Geronimo

I know a gentleman, who had a dream when he was younger
but he was too scared to jump too scared to let it all go now
he’s living alone and the neon lights with his name are broken. Broken

Staring at the sea,
you really wanna jump but it looks too deep
don’t be afraid to try you’ve got to go live before you die

Standing on the edge won’t jump
holding on to what you know
too afraid of the high ropes
and the feeling of the fall
but I, I don’t want to grow old
standing on the edge, and won’t jump.
So take my hand and be young forever
Be young forever

I know, sometimes it can be so hard
to say who you love, because it hurts to be shot down
but it’s so much worse feeling strong
and holding on holding on.

Staring at the sea
you really wanna jump but it looks too deep
don’t be afraid to try you’ve got to go live before you die

Standing on the edge won’t jump
holding on to what you know
too afraid of the high ropes
and the feeling of the fall
but I, I don’t want to grow old
standing on the edge, and won’t jump.
So take my hand and be young forever

Oh oh oh oh oh be young forever x4

Standing on the edge won’t jump
holding on to what you know
too afraid of the high ropes
and the feeling of the fall
but I, I don’t want to grow old
standing on the edge, and won’t jump.
So take my hand and be young forever
Be young forever

Oh oh oh oh oh be young forever x4

 

No More Time

No More Time

There’s a pocket in my heart again
And it’s keeping me awake
For all the reasons I can’t understand
I run away

There are people that’ll take you down
But our hearts beat just the same
You’re giving out,  About how you’re living, 
But I don’t want to know

Don’t say nothing’s going right for you, my dear
Some day you’ll have nothing left to fear
And time flies; you don’t have long to go
Until you’ve got no more time to love 
Until you’ve got no more time to love 

The world is full of empty promises
Spinning faster than before
You know they say "You get what you give" 
So give a little more

Don’t say nothing’s going right for you, my dear
Some day you’ll have nothing left to fear
And time flies; you don’t have long to go
Until you’ve got no more time to love
Until you’ve got no more time to love 
Until you’ve got no more time to love 
Until you’ve got no more time to love 
Until you’ve got no more time to love 
Until you’ve got no more time to love
Until you’ve got no more time to love

Don’t say nothing’s going right for you, my dear
Some day you’ll have nothing left to fear
And time flies; you don’t have long to go

Don’t say nothing’s going right for you, my dear
Some day you’ll have nothing left to fear
And time flies; you don’t have long to go
Until you’ve got no more time to love
Until you’ve got no more time to love
Until you’ve got no more time to love
Until you’ve got no more time to love


Sweetest Goodbye

Another night, another road
Another hotel room all on my own
Another flight, another show
But don’t you worry ‘cause
I’ll be coming home
Oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh
I’ll be coming home

I know that it’s hard when I have to go
And I must leave you all alone
And every parting kiss is the sweetest goodbye
Cause I’ll be coming home
Oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh
I’ll be coming home
Oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh
Cause I’ll be coming

Home to the place
Where I belong
Home to the town that I can call my own
Home to the faces
I love and know
The people that have made the man that I’ve become
Oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh
The man that I’ve become

I know that it’s hard when I have to go
And I must leave you all alone
And every parting kiss is the sweetest goodbye
Cause I’ll be coming home
Oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh
I’ll be coming home
Oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh
Cause I’ll be coming

As I put my bags down
I look around
At the pictures on the wall
Then I hear your laughter
It’s my favorite sound
Cause I know I am home
Oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh
Cause I know I am home
Oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh
Cause I know I am home

I know that it’s hard when I have to go
And I must leave you all alone
And every parting kiss is the sweetest goodbye
Cause I’ll be coming home
Oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh
Cause I’ll be coming home
Oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh
Cause I’ll be coming home

 

You Should Know

Wanna see inside your heart
I wanna be there
Let me heal all your scars
Tell me your secrets


I was searching
When it’s always been you
I was hiding
Running from the truth

You should know
You’re the reason I let myself fall
Only you can tame my soul
Nobody else comes close
 
You should know
You’ve never looked so beautiful
Say that you’ll never let go
Cause nobody else comes close

You should know

I haven’t been sleeping
Spending all my nights away
It hasn’t been easy

I was searching
When it’s always been you
I was hiding
Running from the truth

You should know
You’re the reason I let myself fall
Only you can tame my soul
Nobody else comes close

When you feel like you’re done disguising 
And you’re tired of the compromising
And you need a hand
To guide you home

When you feel like the sky’s gonna fall, yeah
And your mind’s caught in the darkness
There’s no demons
I’d let inside us, no

You should know
You’re the reason I let myself fall
Only you can save my soul
Nobody else comes close

You should know
You’re the reason I let myself fall
Only you can tame my soul
Nobody else comes close

You should know
You’ve never looked so beautiful
Say that you’ll never let go
Cause nobody else comes close

I thought you should know

 

Slow Dance

Ohhh place to place
And I don’t stop
Another day spent
Trying to beat the clock
Out of breath
Out of steam
Time is a race I’m running

The city lights
They come and go
Another town
Another show
Counting down the days
Til I get home

Loving you’s a slow dance
I wanna make every moment last
I wanna take it slow
Take it slow, yeah

Cause this world spins so fast
Before we know it the future is the past
I wanna take it slow
Take it slow, yeah

Cause loving you’s a slow slow slow slow
Slow dance
Loving you’s a slow slow slow slow
Slow dance

One touch is all it takes
Time stands still
Foot on the brakes
Breathe you in
Soak you up
When I’m with you
I can’t get enough
Get enough, get enough

Loving you’s a slow dance
I wanna make every moment last
I wanna take it slow
Take it slow, yeah

Cause this world spins so fast
Before we know it the future is the past
I wanna take it slow
Take it slow, yeah

Cause loving you’s a slow slow slow slow
Slow dance
Loving you’s a slow slow slow slow
Slow dance

My heart beats 
One

When I’m with you

My heart beats 
One

When I’m with you

My heart beats

When I’m with you

Take it slow, yeah

Unbelievable

I was only seventeen, you the high school beauty queen
Unbelievable
You were living on my street, oh so near but out of reach
Unbelievable
When I called to your door, never felt so scared before
Unbelievable
Stood there in your dressing gown, without a thought you shot me down
Unbelievable

I grew up and made a life, worked a job from 9 to 5
Unbelievable
Saved my cash and bought a car, spent my night at Jackie’s bar
Unbelievable

Then one night you walked in with your grin and bright blue eyes
You said "Sorry that I shot you down, that was then, I was young and this is now."
Unbelievable 
Unbelievable 

Now we’re here side by side, I’m your man and you’re my wife
Unbelievable
We have a child, twenty-two, bright blue eyes she looks like you
Unbelievable
I thank my lucky stars at night, I am yours and you are mine
Unbelievable 
And when there comes a day I die, know that you’ve been my whole life
You’re unbelievable
You’re unbelievable
You’re unbelievable
You’re unbelievable
You’re unbelievable

 

 

 

 

This Christmas Time

Will You Dance With Me (This Christmas Time)

Will you dance with me under the stars
This Christmas time
Will you keep me warm down by the fire
This Christmas time

Each year the friends we love
All gather 'round
We watch the tree light up
In the heart of town

Then we'll walk on home through the cold and snow
This Christmas time
Dreaming of the ones we used to know
This Christmas time

Each year my wish has never
Quite come true
But this time my only wish is to spend
The night with you

Will you love me just like I love you
This Christmas time

Will you dance with me under the stars
This Christmas time
Will you keep me warm down by the fire
This Christmas time

Each year my wish has never
Quite come true
But this time my only wish is to spend
The night with you

Will you love me just like I love you
This Christmas time

 

Irish Christmas

Cobbled streets, good friends we'll meet
Winter’s drawing in, days are getting cold back home
Fields of green, like you’ve never seen
Turning white with snow, painted barley leaves calling me home

When the lights are shining bright in Dublin town
You will see the glowing love that’s all around
People’ll be dancing and singing, all the bells they’ll be ringing
Songs of joy from the land that I belong
This Irish Christmas

Evening tea with the family,
Old traditions hold, hold us together, young and old
By midnight mass, all the gifts are wrapped
On Christmas Eve we’ll be singing Oh Holy Night

When the lights are shining bright in Dublin town
You will see the glowing love that’s all around
People’ll be dancing and singing, all the bells they’ll be ringing
Songs of joy from the land that I belong
This Irish Christmas

Fields of green like you’ve never seen
Turning white with snow, painted barley leaves calling me home

When the lights are shining bright in Dublin town
You will see the glowing love that’s all around
People’ll be dancing and singing, all the bells they’ll be ringing
Songs of joy from the land that I belong
This Irish Christmas
