Lyrics

She's taking me places
I should never have been
She's showin' me faces
I should never have seen
Well these are strange days
We're livin' in today
Cest la vie I say

I hope I'm old
Before I die
I hope I live to relive
The days gone by

I hope I'm old
Before I die
Well tonight I'm gonna
Live for today
So come along for the ride
I hope I'm old
Before I die

She's not feeling stable
She's unable to breathe
Her heart's beating faster
So I'll ask her to leave
These are strange days
We're livin' in today
Am I straight or gay

I hope I'm old
Before I die
I hope I live to see the day
The Pope gets high

I hope I'm old
Before I die
Well tonight I'm gonna
Live for today
So come along for the ride
I hope I'm old
Before I die

Well these are strange days
We're livin' in today
Cest la vie I say, I say, I say
I hope I'm old
Before I die
I hope I live to relive
The days gone by

I hope I'm old
Before I die
But tonight I'm gonna
Live for today
So come along for the ride
I hope I'm old
Before I die

I hope I'm old before
Old before I die
Old before
Old before I die
Die, I die, I die, I die
Old before I die
Die, I die, I die, I die
