    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
    Lyrics & Vocals: Katja Tennigkeit

    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.
