God never
gives us back our youth
that's the trick
& that's the truth

some keep tryin'
ta' find
the youth
they left behind

ta' go back in time
seein' if they can't find
what it was they left behind

when you're young
ya' run & gun
'till the young's
all done
ain't no fun

if ya' keep lookin' back
you'll lose track
a' where you are
won't get ya' too far

funny ain't nuthin'
there ta' find
'cept the things
ya' left behind
& mosta' them
ain't too kind

guess that's why
God never gives us
back our youth
that's the trick
& that's the truth
