The Older I Get

Album: Yet to be titled (2017)
  • The older I get
    The more I think
    You only get a minute, better live while you’re in it
    'Cause it’s gone in a blink
    And the older I get
    The truer it is
    It’s the people you love, not the money and stuff
    That makes you rich

    And if they found a fountain of youth
    I wouldn’t drink a drop and that’s the truth
    Funny how it feels I’m just getting to my best years yet

    The older I get
    The fewer friends I have
    But you don’t need a lot when the ones that you got
    Have always got your back
    And the older I get
    The better I am
    At knowing when to give
    And when to just not give a damn

    And if they found a fountain of youth
    I wouldn’t drink a drop and that’s the truth
    Funny how it feels I’m just getting to my best years yet
    The older I get

    And I don’t mind all the lines
    From all the times I’ve laughed and cried
    Souvenirs and little signs of the life I’ve lived

    The older I get
    The longer I pray
    I don’t know why, I guess that I
    Got more to say
    And the older I get
    The more thankful I feel
    For the life I’ve had, and all the life I’m living still
