Grasshopper Takeover – Forever Young lyrics

I left my mother's womb in 1969.
I went through life and let my optimism shine.
And opportunity was never hard to find.
You've got to hold on, hold on to your honor.

Remember doing things I thought were pretty cool.
Like gettin' high and drinking whiskey after school.
So sentimental they could play me for a fool.
You've got to hold on, hold on to your honor.

You say love is what you need.
I would do anything just to bring you up to speed, that all my hopes
And all my dreams, they come together exactly as they seem.

*Pre-Chorus*
First rule says you've got to believe in who you are.
Second asks you to believe anything is possible.
Third, get up and do it, boy you'll be a star.
My roots are constellations, guiding me home 'cause I'm living for
The love of rock and roll.

*Chorus*
I celebrate the times when I was young and life was easy.
Seven days a week and it was always fun.
And everything we did was reason for a celebration.
What I would give to be forever young.
Forever and ever and ever 'til I'm cool with growing...

I'm a moonshine daydreamer, sweet sugar cane.
If I had to do it again I wouldn't change a thing.
I've made mistakes that have changed my mind.
Everything to gain, nothing left to leave behind.

Life's too short for anger, too short to live in fear.
Life's Too short for the mad-a-men screaming that the end is near.
Too short to be silent, too short to be alone.
My roots are constellations, guiding me home 'cause I'm living for
The love of rock and roll.

Repeat chorus.

Time it passes by, you let it go. Love it come on in, and out my door.
When nothing else remains, but what's inside, you've got to hold on,
Hold on...

Repeat first pre-chorus/chorus.
