lyrics

You were a young learning kid
Hazy bars, rambling through the streets
Dreamed all day, lived all night
Poured yourself out like California wine

Oh, your smile will dull
and your heart will slow
Oh, your road will unfold
Into the unknown
But keep your head in the fight
And don’t go gentle into the night

In the morning light
Washed by a sense of clarity
Anchored in your history
And the future is in your mind

Oh, your smile will dull
and your heart will slow
Oh, your road will unfold
Into the unknown
But keep your head in the fight
And don’t go gentle into the night
