Shoreline (live) lyrics

ever since i was eight or nine
i've been standing on the shoreline
all my life i've been waiting
for something lasting

this town
kills you when you are young
this town
kills you when you are young

i'm not the boy that i used to be
this town has got the youth of me
all the eyes turn hallow
from the work of sorrow

you die young
you die when you're young
you die when you're young

we are shadows
shadows
just shadows in the alley

standing on the pavement
by the office building
there's so much to do
never time for you

you die young
you die when you're young
you die when you're young

we are shadows
shadows
just shadows in the alley

i've got nothing
nothing to wait for
nothing to wait for

this town kills the young
kills you when you're young
