lyrics

i want to be young and have fun

go to school, get a wife
work a job, die alone
if you want to limit yourself
then knock yourself out but
where i come from
youth is the only rule

ran away, from my home
on the day, i was born
wanted no part of it
i'll never grow up
if you wish it
join me at your own risk

tonight
we've got quite the trip on our hands
we fly
blur the boundaries of time and space and
everything you thought you knew
will blow away all you need to do is
let go of your preconceptions
everybody hang on no exceptions

oh the cleverness of me
let's hang our hammocks in the sky
just stars as far as you can see
i bet you didn't know you that you knew how to fly
there's something magical about this place
all it was missing was your pretty face
a day, a year, a lifetime's well spent
here with me, so don't leave, Wendy

yeah it's not perfect here
savages, pirateers
if it scares you
we've probably got it but they'll
never be a
match for me and the boys

tonight
we've got quite the fight on our hands
we fly
into battle we'll settle the score and
send those scumbag pirates back to
where they came from then i'd like you
to join me in gallavanting
all this ruckus reminds me of one thing

oh the cleverness of me
somehow i got you at my side
there's something in you i've never seen
i don't really understand it but i'll try
in the corner of your mouth there's something there
and i want to make it mine, does this mean i care?
nah, no way, i don't feel, but i
like you here, so don't leave, watch out!

look at em tremble! they know what's coming!
put up your swords boys but this one's mine
proud and insolent youth, prepare to meet thy doom
dark and sinister man
bring it on mother

oh the cleverness of me
let's hang our hammocks in the sky
just stars as far as you can see
i bet you didn't know you that you knew how to fly
there's something magical about this place
all it was missing was your pretty face
a day, a year, a lifetime's well spent
here with me, so don't leave
wait, what's your name?
