  • Oh very young, what will you leave us this time
    You're only dancin' on this earth for a short while
    And though your dreams may toss and turn you now
    They will vanish away like your dads best jeans
    Denim blue, faded up to the sky
    And though you want them to last forever
    You know they never will
    (you know they never will)
    And the patches make the goodbye harder still.

    Oh very young what will you leave us this time
    There'll never be a better chance to change your mind
    And if you want this world to see a better day
    Will you carry the words of love with you
    Will you ride the great white bird into heaven
    And though you want to last forever
    You know you never will
    (you know you never will)
    And the goodbye makes the journey harder still.

    Will you carry the words of love with you
    Will you ride, oh, oooh

    Oh very young, what will you leave us this time
    You're only dancin' on this earth for a short while
    Oh very young, what will you leave us this time
