"Look at us / Where we are / Just livin' in a field of stars / Just some hearts / With some dreams / Running wild like kings and queens / At the county fair little town somewhere / Sundown fades you get lost in the midway lights / And that look in her eye / You got two tickets to the show called life," the first verse begins, throwing down a carpe-diem challenge that Clark drives home in the chorus.
"Whatever you're holdin' in / Let it go / Let it disappear in a ring a smoke / Kiss the sky / Send up a prayer / Wherever you're goin' just go there," the song continues. "Take a look around for a minute / Take a picture in your mind / And send it to yourself cause the truth is you and I / We're never gonna be as young as we are tonight / As young as we are tonight."
