lyrics

When I was young
I groped around in the dark
I could afford the wrongs
One day I'd get them right
When I was young
I could just brush it off and
Raise my fists up to fight

Don't be too careful or you'll wind up like
Waltzing Matilda on rewind
Don't be too patient or you'll never start
It's no more than you can handle
Don't be left behind

When I was young
I didn't need anyone
I could ignore all of
Those warning signs
When I was young
I could just laugh it off and
Pull the wool over my eyes

Don't be too careful or you'll wind up like
Waltzing Matilda on rewind
Don't be too patient or you'll never start
It's no more than you can handle
Don't be left behind
