I havent' listened to a word you've said
I've been wandering inside my head
Don't care what you think of me
You only see what you want to see
So here I am in my paradise
In my heaven everything is alright

Only the young stay young I said
Speaks the kid inside my head
Only the young stay young inside
Only the young - only the young
Only the young - only the young

I've been around for a long time
Losing my way but not my mind
So I drink and play you along
But who cares when the fire burns on
So I'm out here in my paradise
It's my heaven and it feels so right

Only the young stay young I said
Speaks the kid inside my head
Only the young stay young inside
Only the young stay young I said
Speaks the kid inside my head
Only the young stay young at heart
Only the young - only the young
Only the young - only the young

Live your life - in this time
We've only today - drink life's wine
Don't be fooled
Don't believe what they say
Don't believe what they say

I havent' listened to a word you've said
Say what you like
You're not in my head
Time goes with each breath we take
It rules the world the day we awake
So here I sit here in my paradise
Don't give a damn everything is alright
