  • Eighteen was a rocket ride
    I lit the fuse and I held on tight
    Every day was a Friday night
    And I've got the scars to prove it
    It all blew up at 25
    Saw those telephone poles flyin' by
    And I don't remember much that night,
    I'm just lucky I got through it.

    And I let it run like an open vein
    Love the pleasure and curse the pain
    Ohh, foolish things I've done
    I'm too old now to die young.

    Woke up alone at 35
    Just across town from my ex wife
    I get my two kids every Friday night
    And I work all week to do it.
    Their mama and me couldn't work it out
    Oh but that don't seem to matter now
    They're all that I care about
    And I've got their love to prove it.

    And I let it run like an open vein
    Love the pleasure and curse the pain
    Ohh, foolish things I've done
    I'm too old now to die young.

    And I let it run like an open vein
    Love the pleasure and curse the the pain
    Ohh, foolish things I've done
    And I never thought I'd make it here
    Wish I could live another hundred years
    Ohh, foolish the things I've done
    But I'm too old now to die young
    I'm too old now to die young
    Oh, too old now to die young.
