Hellions - 25 lyrics

[Verse 1] No Bogart, no Bergman, no Brando No more Hemingway, no Hesse - the art ingrained in our marrow So in retrospect does it not seem, that we lament the grace of greats as we do our youthful dreams? But in nuance, we are capable of our own renaissance A respiring anachronism to animate us And as long as we sing, we can stay young like this And we can [Chorus] Reinvent the world, like we used to, screaming Years will wilt and I will mourn I will decay until my body fades away But my kindnesses are eternal (I am infinite, I will remain) The years will wilt and I will mourn but You're as beautiful as the day you were born, and that's true (You're still here) [Verse 2] No Lennon, no Cash or Sinatra No more Morrison, no Jackson - all with whom we were brought up …and so it seems I'm here interminably Like I'm sewing all my stitches in lieu of my seeds Like I'm grasping to sand in a salubrious sea Youth slip faster through fingers, the harder I squeeze And then I doubt if I'll love anything The way I loved those songs when I was seventeen [Chorus] Reinvent the world, like we used to, screaming Years will wilt and I will mourn I will decay until my body fades away But my kindnesses are eternal (I am infinite, I will remain) The years will wilt and I will mourn but You're as beautiful as the day you were born, and that's true (You're still here) [Bridge 1] Friends raise you as much as family (and I believe) this way, youth is sustained eternally (and I believe) love is the only currency And I believe, love is all that defines me I now believe that time will increase your worth That you're as beautiful, as the day you were born The truth is - we're all scared, we're all unprepared But together we stand - look to your right, to your left And breathe (Still here with me, still here with me, still here with me) You're still here with me [Bridge 2] So were we born and raised to be the same? No, no We are not the same and there is no one way We are each unique but we are equal It's your brush, your canvas and easel Everyone must pave their own way We have to change, we have to change And if we don't we'll suffocate [Chorus] Reinvent the world, like we used to, screaming Years will wilt and I will mourn I will decay until my body fades away But my kindnesses are eternal (I am infinite, I will remain) The years will wilt and I will mourn but You're as beautiful as the day you were born, and that's true (You're still here) [Outro] You're as beautiful as the day you were born, you're you
