YOUTH Lyrics
Jump to:
What if
What if we run away
What if
What if we left today
What if
We said goodbye to safe and sound
And what if
What if we're hard to find
What if
What if we lost our minds
What if
We left them fall behind, and they're never found

And when the lights start flashing like a photobooth
And the stars exploding
We'll be fireproof

My youth
My youth is yours
Trippin' on skies, sippin' waterfalls
My youth
My youth is yours
Runaway now and forevermore
My youth
My youth is yours
A truth so loud you can't ignore
My youth, my youth, my youth
My youth is yours

What if
What if we start to drive
What if
What if we close our eyes
What if
Speeding through red lights into paradise
Cause we've no time for getting old
Mortal body; timeless souls
Cross your fingers, here we go
Oh, oh, oh

And when the lights start flashing like a photobooth
And the stars exploding
We'll be fireproof

My youth
My youth is yours
Trippin' on skies, sippin' waterfalls
My youth
My youth is yours
Runaway now and forevermore
My youth
My youth is yours
A truth so loud you can't ignore
My youth, my youth, my youth
My youth is yours
My youth is yours

My youth
My youth is yours
Trippin' on skies, sippin' waterfalls
My youth
My youth is yours
Runaway now and forevermore
My youth
My youth is yours
A truth so loud you can't ignore
My youth, my youth, my youth
My youth is yours
Oh, oh, oh
My youth is yours
Oh, oh, oh
My youth is yours

YOUTH Info:

• Troye explained:
"'Youth' is a song about the joy in naivety and being lost. It's about dropping everything, running away, making mistakes, and loving too hard, and how that's okay."

• He further explained:
"I was sitting in the writing room with Allie X before we started writing this song and she was in her Tumblr inbox. There was a message from a fan that said 'Allie X my youth is yours' and I was just like oh my God that is so poetic and awesome and such a cool way to say 'I'm experiencing my youth to your music.'

It just hit me in so many different contexts. If you get into a relationship when you're young with someone you're giving them your young years you're giving them your youth. But also from my perspective a little bit I felt like it meant something to me with my audience, having been online since I was 12 I feel like I really have given a lot of my youth to a lot of people. So it just kind of hit me in all these different ways and then we started writing the song."
