Still Young
The Cat Empire Lyrics


First I saw you standing there
Eyes so wild beneath your hair
Coat worn blacker than the sun
Shook your head like Strummer strummed
We stood like soldiers in a line
Heard the bells of midnight chime
We turned grey walls to fields of green
The only fate that we could scream was

While you’re still young
Find your heart and find your song
Now where have you gone?

No matter where you’re going
And no matter where you’ve been
You never needed anybody else’s call now
I never met a one like you, never met a one like you
Never met a one like you, don’t bring me down

There’s a dream that haunts my nights
Of wild black horses out in flight
The kind of free I’d never been
A kind of beast I’d never seen
Why do all things end in pain?
I call the ghosts and ask their names
Is that love you’re running from?
If you lead then I will come

And while you’re still young
Find your heart and find your song
Now where have you gone?

No matter where you’re going
And no matter where you’ve been
You never needed anybody else’s call now
I never met a one like you, never met a one like you
Never met a one like you, don’t bring me down

Basta de cuentos
Es tiempo de lo nuestro
Tengo tu alma
Bien metida adentro

While you’re still young
Find your heart and find your song
While you’re still young
Find your heart and find your song
While you’re still young
Find your heart and find your song
Now where have you gone?
Oh oh oh...

No matter where you’re going
And no matter where you’ve been
You never needed anybody else’s call now
I never met a one like you, never met a one like you
Never met a one like you, don’t bring me down

"Still Young"

First I saw you standing there
Eyes so wild beneath your hair
Coat worn blacker than the sun
Shook your head like Strummer strummed
We stood like soldiers in a line
Heard the bells of midnight chime
We turned grey walls to fields of green
The only fate that we could scream was

While you’re still young
Find your heart and find your song
Now where have you gone?

No matter where you’re going
And no matter where you’ve been
You never needed anybody else’s call now
I never met a one like you, never met a one like you
Never met a one like you, don’t bring me down

There’s a dream that haunts my nights
Of wild black horses out in flight
The kind of free I’d never been
A kind of beast I’d never seen
Why do all things end in pain?
I call the ghosts and ask their names
Is that love you’re running from?
If you lead then I will come

And while you’re still young
Find your heart and find your song
Now where have you gone?

No matter where you’re going
And no matter where you’ve been
You never needed anybody else’s call now
I never met a one like you, never met a one like you
Never met a one like you, don’t bring me down

Basta de cuentos
Es tiempo de lo nuestro
Tengo tu alma
Bien metida adentro

While you’re still young
Find your heart and find your song
While you’re still young
Find your heart and find your song
While you’re still young
Find your heart and find your song
Now where have you gone?
Oh oh oh...

No matter where you’re going
And no matter where you’ve been
You never needed anybody else’s call now
I never met a one like you, never met a one like you
Never met a one like you, don’t bring me down

First I saw you standing there
Eyes so wide beneath your hair
Cold warm blacker than the sun
Shock your head like stronger strong

Stood like soldiers in the line
Heard the bells of midnight train
We turn great walls to fields of green
The only faith that we could scream

It's while you're still young
Find your heart and find your soul
Now where have you gone?

No matter where you're going
And no matter where you've been
You never need anybody else's call now
I never met no one like you, never met no one like you
Never met no one like you, don't bring me down

There's a dream that haunts my mind
Wild black horses having fun
Kind of free I've never been
The kind of beast I've never seen

Why do all things end in pain?
I called the ghosts and asked their names
Is that love you're running from?
If you lead, then I will come

And while you're still young
Find your heart and find your soul
Now where have you go?

No matter where you're going and
No matter where you've been
You never need anybody else's call now
I never met no one like you, never met no one like you
Never met no one like you, don't bring me down

Basta, de cuentos, es tiempo de lo nuestro
Tengo, tu alma, bien metida dentro
Basta, de cuentos, es tiempo de lo nuestro
Tengo, tu alma, bien metida dentro

And while you're still young
Find your heart and find your soul
And while you're still young
Find your heart and find your soul
And while you're still young
Find your heart and find your soul
Now where have you go?

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

No matter where you're going
And no matter where you've been
You never need anybody else's call now
I never met no one like you, never met no one like you
Never met no one like you, don't bring me down

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

This is the best song I've ever heard. Inspiring, truthful and also the melody is pretty nice. I hope The Cat Empire will continue doing songs like this.

ska has such potential, and they used it to the fullest!!! Such an awesome song

Dr Kylie Bown

The Cat Empire draw a lot of inspiration from original Ska, but also from a very specific style that is immensely popular in Southern South America - Argentine and Uruguayan Ska/funk/reggae/latin punk rock fusion. In South America a lot of these type of songs are used at festivals, big parties and eventually turned into football chants. These guys are pioneers of this Ska fusion style in Australia, with their truly unique brand. They are sensational live always a carnival type atmosphere. I absolutely love them, and they are very underrated. Legends.

Qualityyyyy!!

@Jason Millbauer Ska-P is Spanish and they only have in common with The Cat Empire the ska vibe. The rest is different.

Thank you for the history! I just love them but not much written. ..
