You're Still Young - Phil Bridle & Katja Tennigkeit by Katja Tennigkeit published on 2013/10/31 21:45:41 +0000 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.
