Eric Paslay – Wild And Young


Smilin’ child, king cake on your face
Wavin’ at the giants in a mardi gras parade
Confetti in the air, like time passin’ by
You’re older now but there’s still magic in your eyes

Time flies, stars fall
The world comes undone
But somehow you stay
Wild and young

You were born with a gypsy poet soul
Pop rocks in your shoes and freckles on your nose
A song on your lips and wonder in your heart
Faith like a river windin’ through the dark

Time flies, stars fall
The world comes undone
But somehow you stay
Wild and young
Oh wild and young

When your mind wonders and your hair goes grey
Eyes dim and bones ache
I’ll still see you as I do today
Cause your spirit’s never looked its age

Time flies, stars fall
The world comes undone
But somehow you stay
Wild and young

When the time comes and heaven calls
And it’s all said and done
I know you’ll smile a smile
That’s wild and young
