The Bergamot “Young Again”

The Bergamot are back with “Young Again” a standout track from their September full length Mayflies. “Young Again” ascends in a soft and tender crescendo as lyrics concerning the past and personal journey are presented with a personable and vulnerable approach. The production is a familiar instrumental arrangement layered with pad synths panned out on the inside and repeating arpeggios drawing the listener deeper into the storyline. “Young Again” is bursting with emotion and rawness that is endearing.

If you’re feeling wistfully nostalgic as you enter the weekend try giving “Young Again” by Brooklyn based the Bergamot a spin.

MORE FROM THE ARTIST:

“Young Again” looks at the future through the eyes of a growing young boy with youthful ambition and determination to make a better world. Blind ambition in the face of a daunting future. As the pendulum swings from youth to wisdom, Millenials now enter their most productive years. It is vital that we see a vision of possibility. This Sea shanty can be sung by anyone who has grown up and watched the endless possibilities of life fade into reality. The question: is it a reality we are proud of?

// LYRICS //

YOUNG AGAIN

When I was a young boy
I had a vision
Of dreams that would become of me
My late-night adventures
My sweet youth surrender
Learning who I’d rather be
Well I held on to my Grandpa’s clock
Gave it all that I had
Life was an ocean
I was the captain
Set on a journey to sea

Cause I always
Wanted to be older
Now that I am older
I want to be young again

I want to be young again

Now that I am older
I am not too much stronger
And there are scenes I want to see
Go dancing in Nashville
Backpack the Rockies
Hold on to everything
Fall asleep with New York City
Cali is calling my name
When North Carolina meets old West Virginia
Atlanta please hold my hand

Cause I always
Wanted to be older
Now that I am older
I want to be young again

Cause I always
Wanted to be older
Now that I am older
I want to be young again

I want to be young again

Well there was a time when I was much younger
But now that’s well behind me
Because years turn to days
And days turn to hours
Lines in the reflections I see
On the South Shore outside Chicago
Reality starts to creep in
Now that I am older
The magic glows lower
The old boat I struggle to see

One fourth of July it all sank in
The world that I’d been living in
It washed up there
Right on the Shore
The world I’d seen
I wanted nothing more
Than to take the hand of Miss Liberty
Dance one last dance
Just here and me
We’ll make our footsteps on the shore
All I cared was to have one moment more

Cause I always
Wanted to be old
Now that I am older
I want to be young again

Cause I always
Wanted to be old
Now that I am older
I want to be young again

I want to be young again
I want to be young again
I want to be young again

Cause I always
Wanted to be old
Now that I am older
I want to be young again

Cause I always
Wanted to be old
Now that I am older
I want to be young again
