Growing up today
There's many mountains you must climb
You're not the only one
'Cause everybody's on that line

Hey mister know it all
What do you recommend
You think you know the answers
But the questions never end

Young hearts better hold on
Beyond the innocence
Your youth is gone
Better look in your mirror

You got nothing to lose
Don't waste your time away
Thinkin' 'bout yesterday's blues
(Yesterdays blues)

Born outta passion
To a world gone cold
Ya wear it on your shoulders
It's a heavy, heavy load I know

Love and its emotions
Come knocking at your door
Young hearts will be broken
And time's the only cure

Young hearts better hold on
Beyond the innocence
Your youth is gone
Better look in your mirror

It'll tell you the truth
Don't waste your love away
Thinkin' 'bout yesterday's blues
(Yesterday blues)
Woah oh

Temptation makes us fall from grace
But the angels were sinners
And the sinners saints
Forgive yourself 'cause we're all the same
Everybody rides on the karma train

Young hearts
Better hold on
Beyond the innocence
Your youth is gone

Well, look in your mirror
It'll tell you the truth
(Tell you the truth)
Don't waste your time away

Don't waste your life away, no, no
Live today, there's no time to lose
'Cause when tomorrow comes
It's all just yesterday's news

All just yesterday news, yesterday news
Yesterdays news, yesterdays news
