Some Like It Hot – Young Once lyrics
Tonight, all is certain
Draw this curtain
And get this started right

'Cause here the moment's perfect
The wait's so worth it
And we're all packed in tight

Downtown, the street's and dead ends
Are where my best friends
Waste away their days

Back home, are all our bothers
Where stoic fathers
Hope it's just a phase

But the going getting tough
Is what gets the toughs going
With the kids in the pit at the show

And we'll never get enough
Of the stage lights glowing
Cause hey, this is it
It's all we know

And when the house lights come back on
Our colors remain true
Because I don't know where I'll be
When the music stops
But I hope it's next to you

Rejoice now
We know how
To sing with one voice
If only for one night
Sing out loud
All about
The stories of our lives
We're just young once but
Time is on our side

Chorus Variation:
Look back on
Days long gone
As if we had a choice
The times we felt alive
In one breath
We've all left
It's just as well I guess
We can't stay young 'cause
Time has passed us by
