Impermanence – Cat Stevens Style

I grew up listening to Cat Stevens from my mom’s cassette player, and I have been putting “Oh Very Young” on repeat lately. Emotionally, it just hits a sweet spot.

Oh very young
What will you leave us this time
You’re only dancing on this earth for a short while
And though your dreams may toss and turn you now
They will vanish away like your daddy’s best jeans
Denim blue fading up to the sky
And though you want them to last forever
You know they never will

Oh very young
What will you leave us this time
There’ll never be a better chance to change your mind
And if you want this world to see a better day
Will you carry the words of love with you
