This collab is based on a piece of Phil, called "Because I am old" ( https://soundcloud.com/philipbridle/because-i-am-old ), and Riny Raijmakers already made a version with the same title (https://soundcloud.com/rinyraijmakers/because-im-getting-old). Phil suggested I could write new lyrics with the title "Because I'm young". My first thought was...no, I'm not really young anymore. My second thought was.....wait, but I also don't perceive people like Phil and Riny as old. Or my own dad, who also plays the guitar and loves to make music. Or the members of the coolest band ever, MY band, some of them could be my dad, too, but old? They're the funniest, silliest bunch of musicians imaginable. So this song is to all of them, whose hair is already greying (if there's any left at all) but who still make music that keeps their hearts young! Cheers!!!!
Music & Guitar: Phil Bridle

You’re still young
When I was born you already held a guitar in your hand
Maybe you’ve got grandchildren, or could be having some
You say, you’re feeling old
But to me, you’re still young.
You’ve been through the storm of life, you’ve learnt to stand your ground
You’ve grown with the people that have come and gone
Why do you feel old?
To me, you’re still young.
You’ve got a passion
Something your heart is burning for
You don’t lean back and watch TV
You keep striving for more
As long as there a still songs waiting to be sung
You’re not old, you’re young
Others may be younger when I count the years
But when I search their hearts for dreams, I see none
So don’t say that you’re old
To me, you’re still young
The questions I’m asking, you have found the answers
And the battles I am fighting, you have already won
Believe me, you’re not old
You will always be young.
