Young Once

you can't touch
'cos you might burn
you can't dive
until you've learnt
you can't take
'cos you've nothing to give
if you don't
then you've never lived

oh go on
take the plunge
be a fool
don't be too cool
no risk, no fun
you're only young once

There's a world
inside your head
where you can play
without getting hurt
There's a life
where you pull all the strings
where you know everything
before it is

safe and sound
you're alright
on your own
no unknowns
but no risk, no fun
you're only young once

There's a world
outside the world
inside your head
that's better

so go on
take the plunge
be a fool
don't be too cool
no risk, no fun
you're only young once

Lyrics: Cataleya Fay, Jonnie White
