Youth 03:20
A child is born with the gift of innocence yet this cold world tends to know how to take it away. Imagine a heart when it's told there is no Santa Claus. It evolves into something where color fades to grey. Oh I miss those precious tender years. Where dreams were possible, and Mom and Dad were your love. Oh I wish I could go back in time so I can watch myself experience good memories, memories that I let go of. Oh the flashbacks of our youth.... A teen is forged who inherits anger and ignorance. From this cold world that taught him selfish ways. Imagine a heart with the courage to tell his family about coming out and then they suddenly push him away. Oh I wish I can tell em it'll be okay. Cuz dreams are still possible with or without their love. Oh I wish I could go ahead in time. So I can watch everything work out for them. So they don't have to rid themselves of, oh the flashbacks of their youth. My mom and dad are blessed with the gift of life. They hope that this cold world will never take that away. Imagine a mother without her daughter. Imagine a father if his son is taken away. There would be no going back, the innocence would forever go away. Forever.
