Only the Young Lyrics

by Brandon Flowers

Look back in silence; the cradle of your whole life.
There in the distance, losing its greatest prize.
Nothing is easy, nothing is sacred. Why?
Where did the bough break?
It happened before your time.

There were people there, lovely as you've ever cared.
Tonight.
Baby you can start again.
Laughing in the open air; have yourself another dream.
Tonight.
Maybe we can start again.

Only the young can break away, break away.
Lost when the wind blows; on your own, ohh..
Only the young can break away, break away.
Lost when the wind blows; on your own, ohh...

Mother its cold here. Father thy will be done.
Thunder and lightening are crashing down.
They got me on the run, direct me to the sun.
Redemption keeps my covers clean tonight.
Baby we can start again.

Only the young can break away, break away.
Lost when the wind blows; on your own, ohh...
Only the young can break away, break away.
Lost when the wind blows; on your own, ohh...

And the sun will shine again.
And the sun will shine again.
Are you looking for a sign?
Or are you caught up in the light?

Ha.....ha.....ha.....ha....ha.
Ha.....ha.....ha.....ha....ha.

Only the young can break away, break away.
Lost when the wind blows; on your own, ohh...
Only the young can break away, break away.
Lost when the wind blows; on your own, ohh...

Only the young can...
Lost when the wind blows...
Only the young can...
Lost when the wind blows...

Ha....ha....ha....ha....ha.
Are you caught up in the light?
Ha....ha....ha....ha....ha.
