David Bowie – Because You're Young lyrics

Psychodelicate girl - come out to play
Little metal faced-boy
Don't stay away
They're so war-torn and resigned
She can't talk any more

What are they trying to prove?
What would they like to find?

It's love back to front and no sides
Like I say
These pieces are broken - like I say
These pieces are broken
Hope I'm wrong but I know

[Chorus:]
Because you're young
You'll meet a stranger some night
Because you're young -
What could be nicer for you
And it makes me sad
So I'll dance my life away
A million dreams, a million scars

He punishes hard
Was loving her such a crime
She took back everything she said
Left him nearly out of his mind
They're people I know - people I love
They seem so unhappy - dead or alive

It's love back to front and no sides
Like I say
These pieces are broken - like I say
These pieces are broken
Hope I'm wrong but I know

[Chorus:]

A million dreams
A million scars
A million [repeat ad inf.]
