Never Die Young - James Taylor
    We were ring-around-the-rosy children

    They were circles around the sun
    Never give up, never slow down
    Never grow old, never ever die young

    Synchronized with the rising moon
    Even with the evening star
    They were true love written in stone
    They were never alone, they were never that far apart

    And we who couldn't bear to believe they might make it
    We got to close our eyes
    Cut up our losses into doable doses
    Ration our tears and sighs

    You could see them on the street on a Saturday night
    Everyone used to run them down
    They're a little too sweet, they're a little too tight
    Not enough tough for this town

    We couldn't touch them with a ten-foot pole
    No, it didn't seem to rattle at all
    They were glued together body and soul
    That much more with their backs up against the wall

    Oh, hold them up, hold them up
    Never do let them fall
    Prey to the dust and the rust and the ruin
    That names us and claims us and shames us all

    I guess it had to happen someday soon
    wasn't nothing to hold them down
    They would rise from among us like a big baloon
    Take the sky, forsake the ground

    Oh, yes, other hearts were broken
    Yeah, other dreams ran dry
    But our golden ones sail on, sail on
    To another land beneath another sky
