Do they have dreams like we do?
Do they wish on falling stars?
Do they fall in love like we do?
Do they ever wonder how to pass the hours?

Do they have hopes like we do?
Do they smile and laugh and cry?
Do they have that special someone
We all see when we close our eyes?

Sometimes I wonder
if we're alone in this crowd.
Just a lonely few of us
who like our music too loud.
Are we the only ones on this planet earth
who believe in staying young?
While all the rest
want all the best
and we just want some fun
along the way?

Do they have thoughts like we do?
Do they dwell on things gone past?
Do they find it enough to play the game
or are they to afraid of being last?

Do they have friends like we do?
Are we just that lucky few?
Do they have those people who make them smile
just like I have you?

Sometimes I wonder
if we're alone in this crowd.
Just a lonely few of us
who like our music too loud.
Are we the only ones on this planet earth
who believe in staying young?
While all the rest
want all the best
and we just want some fun
along the way?

Nice work. I think that you're writing is very relatable and accessible.  With work, it can be even stronger.
