lyrics

I don’t wanna die before I’ve been to North Cape
to see the sea where the sea has no shape
I don’t wanna die before I’ve been to Shangri-la
should it be in China or somewhere in Jamaica

I don’t wanna die before I’ve learnt to sing the blues
to read the stars and make my clothing and my shoes
I don’t wanna die before I’ve even learnt to dance
to use telepathy and fall in a state of trance

I don’t wanna die young

I don’t wanna die before I’ve settled down somewhere
a house in the woods for my love and I to share
and when the thunders burst and the sky is blue
we’ll hold like inuits in a small igloo

I don’t wanna die before I’ve let my burden down
to face the unknown like a monk or like a clown
I don’t wanna die before I’ve made my way through
the mess in me to be one with you

I don’t wanna die young

Imagination has saved my life
