"Young And Jaded" lyrics - CORB LUND

"Young And Jaded"

My young and jaded heart and hatin'
Used to look at love and hope it'd come to me sometime
Till a wicked woman's wisdom shot me down
Young and jaded, love has faded
To a place I figure I can't ever occupy
Well I'm sad and tired and glad to see it go

Well I used to think that I'd escape misfortune coming down
When love and lover mounted up and rode on into town
And I used to take the things I'd find and put 'em all away
I'd write 'em down and save 'em up for love's red letter day
But now I've seen how cold and blue and false things get to be
I write my songs and watch my step and leave the roses be
