"Another Youngster" (sometimes called "The Dream Appointed") is a song by The Avett Brothers which they played live from October 19, 2007 at the Hanford Fox Theatre in Hanford, CA until 2011. It was recorded for I and Love and You but dropped because they deemed it "too boring".

It was majorly reworked to be "Another is Waiting" from the Brother's 2013 album Magpie and the Dandelion.

LyricsEdit

Another youngster who says she doesn't care
Her number's up; another is waiting there
Just like that she vanishes in the air
Replaced with new, not worth repairing

But you're not like that, and you never were
And your star will shine well past the fragile lights of earth
The crowds will come; and the hands of time, they will turn
And you'll live the dream appointed

I was lost somewhere out on the road
This old man told me he had no place he had to go
He said his life on earth was limited, you know
He said he had no need to hurry

I thought of your voice and what lay ahead of you
And if I had it all again, what would I do?
(Is, this?) my life now more than half of it through
Am I obsessed with dying?

But you're not like that, and you never were
Your star will shine well past the fragile lights of earth
The stars will come, and the stars will go
And you'll live the dream appointed
