Young Hearts Run Free Lyrics

What’s the sense in sharing
This one and only life
Endin’ up, just another lost and lonely wife
You’ll count up the years
And they will be filled with tears
Uh-huh

Love only breaks up
To start over again
You’ll get the baby
But you won’t have your man
While he is busy loving
Every woman that he can
Uh-huh

Say I’m gonna leave a hundred times a day
It’s easier said than done
When you just can’t break away
(When you just can’t break away)

Young hearts run free
Never be hung up
Hung up like my man and me
My man and me
Oh, young hearts
To yourself be true
Don’t be no fool
When love really don’t love you
Don’t love you

It’s high time now
Just one crack at life
Who wants to live in
In trouble and strife
My mind must be free
To learn all I can about me
Uh-huh

I’m gonna love me
For the rest of my days
Encourage the babies
Every time they say
Self preservation
Is what’s really going on today
Uh-huh

Say I’m gonna turn loose
A thousand times a day
But how can I turn loose
When i just can’t break away
(When I just can’t break away)

Young hearts run free
Never be hung up
Hung up like my man and me
My man and me
