No I never knew you
We both went to different schools
Me so scared of the rules
You chasing all the girls
Now it seems to me
We never grew up we just got ourselves free
Inventing what we could be
To buy all their curls
Get up and dance - Get up and smile
Get up and drink to the days
That who are gone in the shortest while
Get up and dance - Get up and smile
Get up and drink to the ones
Who are gone in the shortest while
She was just eighteen she collapsed and they took her away
She didn't make it for more than an hour
Then she was gone
What do you say when someone's been taken that way
Before they've had a day to fly in the sun
