Young As The Morning, Old As The Sea Album Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Everything

When you got nothing
Freewheeling and free falling you go
When you got nothing you've got something to prove
Then you get something
Something that you've always dreamed about
When you got something you've got something to lose

They take everything
They take your spark
They take everything
They break your heart
They take everything
Oh cause nothing's ever something
Until you lose everything

Before you got everything
You're flying high, you don't wanna come down
But something stirs down in your soul
If everything is nothing
Til you got someone to share it with
Somebody to have somebody to hold

Give 'em everything
Give 'em light and dark
Give 'em everything
Give 'em all your heart
Give 'em everything
Oh cause nothing's ever something
Until you give everything

Cause nothing's lost forever
Yeah when some things never change
You know that anything is better
When you've got love
You've got everything
You've got everything
Oh oh, everything
Oh oh, everything
Oh cause nothing's ever something
Until you give everything

If You Go

While we're wild and free
We'll skip like were stones on the sea
Sing like the birds in the trees
Like crows outside your window

While we're new and young
We'll shine like a morning sun
No matter the seasons that come and go
Or which way the wind blows

Every time you go I'll see
Just how my world comes crashing round me
And if you want to stay
I don't think I'd for nothing more

But if you'll go I'll go
Oh if you'll go I'll go
Oh if you'll go then I'll go
As long as you want me to stay

While our love is green
Forget the troubles we've seen
Forget the people we've been
Before all of the mistakes
And heart breaks and oh my love

While stars they shine
While your heart is mine
Yeah while there's music and wine
Let us dance all the time
Let us pull down the stars
Let us tug on the lines
Let us smile till we laugh
Let us laugh till we cry
Let us fall in a heap
Under diamond skies

Cos every time you go I'll see
Just how my world comes crashing round me
And if you want to stay
I don't think I'd for nothing more

But if you'll go I'll go
Oh if you'll go I'll go
Oh if you'll go then I'll go
As long as you want me to stay

And I'll stay
'Till the sun falls out of the sky
I'll stay
I'll stay
'Till all of the rivers run dry

But if you'll go I'll go
Oh if you'll go I'll go
Oh if you'll go then I'll go
As long as you want me to stay

Oh I, as long as you want me to stay
Oh I, as long as you want me to stay

When We Were Young

We used to never say never
used to think we live for ever
flying free beneath the sun
days go running and hiding
the weeks are going slippy and sliding
years leave quicker everytime they come

Remember when we were young

Look back to the best days
collecting all yesterdays
as they built up one by one

How we beg and we borrow
say we do it tomorrow
but tomorrow never seems to come

We used to never say never
used to think we live for ever
flying free beneath the sun
days go running and hiding
the weeks are going slippy and sliding
years leave quicker everytime they come

Remember when we were young

And we were boys on the beach
everything was in reach
I know it's hard to remember
and all had the years they vanish
I always wanted to learn Spanish
and travel round South-America

We used to never say never
used to think we live for ever
flying free beneath the sun
days go running and hiding
the weeks are going slippy and sliding
years leave quicker everytime they come

Remember when we were young [x3]

Anywhere

If you get out on the ocean
If you sail out on the sea
If you get up in the mountains
If you go climbing on trees
Oh or through every emotion
When you know that they don't care
Darling, that's when I'm with you
Oh, I'll go with you anywhere

If you get up in a jet plane
Or down in a submarine
If you get onto the next train
Just go somewhere you never been
If you wanna ride in a fast car
And feel the wind in your hair
Darling just look beside you
Oh, I'll go with you anywhere

Oh, and I will be with you
When the darkest winter comes
Oh, and I will be with you
To feel the California sun
Oh, and I will be with you
In the night sounds and it's true
Oh, I'll go anywhere with you

If you get up in the hillside
If you ride out on the planes
If you go digging up dirt
If you go out dancing in the rain
If you go chasing in rainbows
Just to find the gold end there
Darling just look behind you
Oh I'll go with you anywhere

Oh, and I will be with you
When the darkest winter comes
Oh, and I will be with you
To feel the California sun
Oh, and I will be with you
In the night sounds and it's true
Oh, I'll go anywhere with you

Yeah I'll go anywhere with you

Oh, and I will be with you
When the darkest winter comes
Oh, and I will be with you
To feel the California sun
Oh, and I will be with you
In the night sounds and it's true
Oh, darling I swear I'll go anywhere with you

Oh I'll go anywhere with you
Oh I'll go anywhere with you
Oh I'll go anywhere with you
Oh I'll go anywhere with you

Somebody's Love

Oh when the winds they blow
You're gonna need somebody to know you
You're gonna need somebody's love to fall into

Oh when the leaves they fall
You're gonna need somebody to call you
You're gonna need somebody's arms to crawl into
To crawl into

Go and get yourself lost
Like you always do
Sail into the blue
With nobody next to you

Oh but when you wanna get yourself found
There may be no one around
You sink without a sound
You know it's true

Oh when the winds they blow
You're gonna need somebody to know you
You're gonna need somebody's love to fall into

Oh when the leaves they fall
You're gonna need somebody to call you
You're gonna need somebody's arms to crawl into

What you're saying is true
You ain't no fool you ain't no liar
You're never gonna get yourself burnt
If you don't start no fires

But with no fire there is no light
With no light you'll never see
All the colors in the world
And all the love that's inside me

When the winds they blow
You're gonna need somebody to know you
You're gonna need somebody's love to fall into

Oh when the leaves they fall
You're gonna need somebody to call you
You're gonna need somebody's arms to crawl into
Oh to crawl into

And oh when the winds they blow
You're gonna need somebody to know
You're gonna need somebody's love to fall into

And oh when the leaves they fall
You're gonna need somebody to call
You're gonna need somebody's arms to crawl into
To crawl into

Young As The Morning Old As The Sea

I wanna lay by a lake in Norway, I
I wanna walk through Swedish fields of green
I wanna see the forests of Finland, I
I wanna sail on a boat on the Baltic sea

I wanna feel the Russian winter, I
I wanna go to my Polish grandmother's home
I wanna see Hungarian lanterns, I
I wanna walk on a road that leads to Rome

I wanna be free as the winds that blow past me
Clear as the air that I breath
Young as the morning
And old as the sea

I wanna lose myself in the Scottish highlands
The west coast of Ireland
The Cornish breeze

I wanna rest my bones in the Spanish sunshine
The Italian coastline is calling me
To be free as the birds that fly past me
Light as the fish in the sea
To be wise as the mountains
And tall as the trees

I wanna be sunny and bright as a sunrise
Happy and full as the moon
I'm fleeting like fireworks fading too soon

Beautiful Birds

You remember when we were two beautiful birds, we would light up the sky, when we'd fly,
You were orange and red, like the sun when it sets, I was green as an apple's eye.

You said you loved all the songs that I'd sing, but nothing like you'd ever heard,
And I said I loved you with all of my heart when we were two beautiful birds.

Remember when we were two beautiful birds, we would say when the morning would come,
You are silver and blue like the moon when it's new, I was gold as the summer sun.

But one day you asked for a different song,
One that I just couldn't sing,
I got the melody sharp, and the words all wrong,
Those were the last days of spring.

To build a nest we pecked feathers from our chests,
Like a book tearing out every page,
We weren't to know that these feathers would grow,
Into a beautiful cage.

The Long Road

We've walked the long road and you've worn it well.
You stitched yourself up when you fell.
Keep your memories in jars,
Carry secrets in scars
Beneath your shell.

You've seen some good days, and some bad ones too.
You weave through fashion and trend.
You've seen a sun rise on an ocean blue,
You've seen it set for the dearest of friends

You found faith but you, chose to doubt it.
You found love but you, left without it.
And now you don't want, to talk about it.

You travelled down through foreign lands,
Touched mountain tops and golden sand,
Seen pyramids and temples made of stone.
Keep seashells in a cashmere scarf,
A treasured book of photographs
In every single one you stand alone.

You've seen Vienna and the Berlin wall,
As you watched the decades fall
The letters that you wrote never made it home.
Your birthdays flew past like June,
With Christmas days in hotel rooms
And new years eve with people you don't know.

You built friendships but they, sailed without you.
You never meant it and that's why, they doubt you.
They don't ever talk about you.

You're older than you used to be,
The mirror weaves a tapestry
Of lines that dance and shimmer 'round your eyes.
You stare back at a man, forever holding out his hand
As if the answer's going to fall out of the sky.

But the penny never dropped,
And no man has ever stopped time flying by.

Fool's Gold

Can't you show me something I've not seen before
Magic tricks and pirate ships - they just don't work no more.
Given up on treasure chests that wash upon the shore
'Cause fool's gold never seems to keep its shine.

Can't you give me something I can hold in my hands
Sick of gold rush promises and empty suitcase plans
I won't go back to treasure maps and digging in the sand
For I always seem to lose whatever I find
Yeah, I always seem to leave it all behind

Give me golden afternoons in May
Give me silver moons that light my way
And I won't ask for fool's gold anymore

Can't you make me feel like I haven't felt for years
When we laughed like we did when I was a kid until I burst into tears
And count the diamond stars and drink the water crystal clear
And I'll be richer than any man who lives with fear

Singing aaaaaay,
Give me golden afternoons in May
Give me silver moons that light my way
I won't ask for fool's gold anymore.

I won't ask for fool's gold anymore.
I won't ask for fool's gold anymore.

Home

They say home is where the heart is
but my heart is wild and free
So am I homeless
Or just heartless?
Did I start this?
Did it start me?

They say fear is for the brave
For cowards never stare it in the eye
So am I fearless to be fearful
Does it take courage to learn how to cry

So many winding roads
So many miles to go
and oh..

Oh they say love is for the loving
Without love maybe nothing is real
So am I loveless or do I just love less

Oh since love left
I have nothing left to fear

So many winding roads
So many miles to go

When I start feeling sick of it all
It helps to remember I'm a brick in a wall
who runs down from the hillside to the sea
when I start feeling that it's gone too far
I lie on my back and stare up at the stars
I wonder if they're staring back at me

oh when I start feeling sick of it all
It helps to remember I'm a brick in a wall
who runs down from the hillside to the sea
when I start feeling that it's gone too far
I lie on my back and stare up at the stars
I wonder if they're staring back at me
