A young man dreamt of glory
A young man dreamt of fame
A young man grows a bit older
A young man grows a bit tame
And he’s always been a dreamer
Always had his head in the clouds
He’s always listened too quietly
And spoke just a little too loud

And now the dream just seems so hollow
It’s not what he might have wanted after all
Some people think they’re getting older and wiser
And sometimes those people
Aren’t so wise after all

A young man dreamt of freedom
Old men sometimes dream the same
A young man tries a little bit harder
But he’s playing an old man’s game
And he’s always been a dreamer
Always wanted too much too fast
He always wanted to be first
And so he finished last

And now the dream just seems so hollow
It’s not what he might have wanted after all
Some people think they’re getting older and wiser
And sometimes those people
Aren’t so wise after all

An old man dreamt of glory
An old man dreamt of fame
An old man grows a bit older
And he still feels just the same
He still feels just the same
He still feels
Just
The
Same
