MUSIC KEEPS ME YOUNG AT HEART / Poem by Joanna Svensson

MUSIC KEEPS ME YOUNG AT HEART

The music keeps me young at heart
It’s so wonderful to once again
Visit a real live concert
With a real life rock’n’roll band!

It’s so thrilling to once again
Put on your tight jeans
Some awesome shoes
And a T-shirt with a crazy text

Oh, my youth has awakened
With great power it is restored
And all these well known tunes
Makes the past come alive once more

And it really doesn’t matter
That time with its rough grasp
Has jagged and casted them
My teeage idols of my early youth

Imagine music being so forceful
As passionate now as then
It feels like the calender of life
Has lost its firm grip of time

Now, let’s hang in there
Dance and jump and sing along
With the same devotion – quite sincere
As I remember – from my time of youth

It doesn’t matter that tomorrow
Your age will claim its rights
It doesn’t matter – not at all, oh, no!
With lumbago aching and my head in pain

I am so happy – to live to see
Once again – a live concert
With what I’ve earned – I can truly say now
Yeah! Music keeps me – forever young!
