Edwin McCain Go Be Young Lyrics

Last updated:

Perfumed and smoky • She swears that she knows me • She's falling down drunk again • I say she's mistaken • She's visibly shaken • Emotions all drowned in gin • She said I used to be beautiful • But now it's all gone • I let my dreams slip away from me • That's where it went wrong • Go be young, go be free • Follow your heart where it leads you • Don't end up like me • The Indian in the guardhouse used to spin me yarns • Stories of canyons and Boston in winter • And losing his family's farms • He said I've outlived my three sons, they died in three wars • I laughed and I cried while they lived and they died • And I know that they deserve more • Chorus • Perfumed and smoky She swears that she knows me • I'm falling down drunk again • I say she's mistaken • She's visibly shaken • Emotions all drowned in gin • Isay I used to be powerful • But now it's all gone • I let my dreams take control of me • That's where it went wrong • Chorus
