Because You’re Young: by Cock Sparrer

Because you’re young, sharp as a knife
You need that buzz to come alive
Out on the edge, out on the town
You ain’t got time to settle down
You’re always sure, you’re always right
You see it all in black and white
You never listen to anyone
Because you’re young
Because you’re young, you’re torn between
A world of hate and a world of dreams
So much to lose, so much to gain
So much to fight for, so much to change
You don’t look back, you don’t look down
You gotta turn everything around
You live your life like a loaded gun
Because you’re young
Stop talking back, get off the phone
You’re late again, you missed the last bus home
This ain’t the way you want to live
I know something’s got to give
You’re always sure, you’re always right
You see it all in black and white
You never listen to anyone
Because you’re young

The lyrics to this song are a perfect expression of what its like to be young, to figuring it all out as time goes by.

As young adults, we tend to pressure ourselves in achieving certain things, and even though its important to have aspirations and a purposeful life, we need to learn to settle within the process of achievement.

This youth month, we encourage you to hold onto to the words of this song. And have the courage to be a better version of your young self.
