No I never knew you
We both went to different schools
Me so scared of the rules
You chasing all the girls

But it seems to me
We never grew up we just got ourselves free
Inventing what we could be
To buy all their curls

Get up and dance
Get up and smile
Get up and drink
To the ones who are gone in the shortest while

She was just eighteen she collapsed
And they took her away
She didn't make it for more than an hour
Then she was gone

What do you say?
When someone's been taken that way
Before they've had a day to fly in the sun

Get up and dance
Get up and smile
Get up and drink
To the ones who are gone in the shortest while

Get up and dance
Get up and smile
Get up and drink
To the to the ones who are gone in the shortest while

I'll sing my sorrow
I'll sing my sorrow
I'll sing my sorrow
I'll sing my sorrow

No I never knew you
We both ended up as different fools
Me so scared of the rules
You chasing all the girls

But it seems to me
We never grew up we just got ourselves free
Inventing what we could be
To buy all their curls

Get up and dance
Get up and smile
Get up and drink
To the ones who are gone in the shortest while

Get up and dance
Get up and smile
Get up and drink
To the to the ones who are gone in the shortest while

I'll sing my sorrow
I'll sing my sorrow
I'll sing my sorrow
I'll sing my sorrow

I'll sing my sorrow
I'll sing my sorrow
I'll sing my sorrow
I'll sing my sorrow
