Advice For The Young At Heart
Tears for Fears Lyrics


Advice for the young at heart
Soon we will be older
When we gonna make it work?

Too many people living in a secret world
While they play mothers and fathers
We play little boys and girls
When we gonna make it work?
I could be happy
I could be quite naive
It's only me and my shadows
Happy in our make believe
Soon

And with the hounds at bay
I'll call your bluff
'Cause it would be okay
To walk on tiptoes everyday

And when I think of you and all the love that's due
I'll make a promise, I'll make a stand
Cause to these big brown eyes, this comes as no surprise
We've got the whole wide world in our hands

Advice for the young at heart
Soon we will be older
When we gonna make it work?

Love is a promise
Love is a souvenir
Once given
Never forgotten, never let it disappear
This could be our last chance
When we gonna make it work?
Working hour is over

And how it makes me weep
'Cause someone sent my soul to sleep

And when I think of you and all the love that's due
I'll make a promise, I'll make a stand
Cause to these big brown eyes, this comes as no surprise
We've got the whole wide world in our hands

We've got the whole wide world in our hands
We've got the whole wide world in our hands

Advice for the young at heart
Soon we will be older
When we gonna make it work?

Advice for the young at heart
Soon we will be older
When we gonna make it work?

Working hour is over
We can do anything that we want
Anything that we feel like doing

You are far from alone

Here. I've loved Tears for Fears since the start. One of my shower songs is, Everybody Wants to Rule the World. But, pretty much everything on Songs From the Big Chair. Although! Saturnyne, Marshall, and Lunatic are fair game.
Dammit! There's more. Elemental.
Power.
This ran through my head as I was teaching my neighbor's kids how to paint and draw.
"If you're seeking power, here's power."
Turn an idea into an image. Put it right in front of them, make it visual, make it real, so they can see it, can't ignore it. That, is power.
Probably not the intention of the original song, at least, not entirely, just an interpretation, but that's how things go.
Damn... 89... that's the year I graduated from high school, went into the Navy, went to war. 1989 was an epic year.

I cannot stop listening to this song. It's so beautiful, the melody, the harmony, the changes. There was an innocence to music in the 80s that isn't there now. Everything these days is so jaded and cynical. I've been totally addicted to TFF for the last month. They are so much more than only "Shout" and "Everybody wants to rule the world".

TFF is a good addiction haha. Tears roll down is another good one. Also mad world.
