But fingers tap into what you were once
And I'm worried that I blew my only chance
Fingers tap into what you were once
And I'm worried that I blew my only chance
But my heart was colder when you'd gone
And I lost my head
Let's live while we are young
While we are young, while are young
While we are young
---Whispers in the Dark, Mumford & Sons.
