wild heart of the young lyrics – karla bonoff

these days when i take a look behind,
i think about you and all that time.
we were as one,
kids on the run.

i loved you like i’ll never love another,
with the wild heart of the young
but it took until now to uncover.
oh, if i’d only known it then

you spoke of the dream we made come true
i remember how i looked up to you.
it was there in your touch
you knew so much.

i loved you like i’ll never love another,
with the wild heart of the young
but it took until now to uncover.
oh, if i’d only known it then

well, they watched while you broke all the rules,
and everyone thought i was your fool.
but i paid the price
never even thought twice

i loved you like i’ll never love another,
with the wild heart of the young
but it took until now to uncover.
oh, if i’d only known it then

if i thought about all the loves
i knew i know they’d all fade except for you.
and someday you’ll see how much you taught me.
