Demons and Saints

by Jeff Shattuck

There are things I've been taught
And things I've learned
I think I finally know what matters
And what to burn

But what's the point of knowing
What you need to do
If the years you have to do it
Number far too few?

And I want to be
I want to be 43 at 22
I want to know what I know but still be new
I know it's a dream that will never come true
But I want to be 43 at 22

There's too little future
And too much past
I thought that the present
Would somehow last

But it's hard and simple truth
In fact it's crystal clear
There is no starting over
There's just starting from here

And I want to be
I want to be 43 at 22
I want to know what I know but still be new
I know it's a dream that will never come true
But I want to be 43 at 22

Some say that youth is wasted on the young
True or not, what’s done is done
And if I could go back and do it all over again
The person I am today is the person I would send

And I want to be 43 at 22
I want to be old but still be new
But I know the truth, and no matter what I do
I'll never be 43 at 22
