who’s feeling young now? lyrics – punch brothers

who’s feeling young now?

i wasn’t tired
i’m never tired
youth will not be wasted on this one
in a dark room
another dark room
she said hey you’re gonna like this
it’s easy to like by candlelight if not under the sun
who’s feeling young now?

dark room to doorway
doorway to sidewalk
youth will not be wasted on this one
in a thick fog
another thick fog
i said hey this isn’t like me
it’s a little like there could be something new under the sun
who’s feeling young now?

they try to tell us and at times we try to listen
but we can’t hear a thing when all we think about are all the things we think we might be missing
’cause if we think we are we are
and if we don’t we aren’t worth the time it takes to think of making love with who we’re kissing
they tried to tell us and at times we tried to listen
no!

she wasn’t perfect
n*body’s perfect
gray hair ain’t a crown of wisdom
when you’re a young man
’til you’re an old man
she says hey you look a lot like
someone i liked who flew just far enough under the sun to never come down
who’s feeling young

they try to tell us and at times we try to listen
but we can’t hear a thing when all we think about are all the things we think we might be missing
’cause if we think we are we are
and if we don’t we aren’t worth the time it takes to think of making love with who we’re kissing
they tried to tell us and at times we tried to listen
