Now That I Am Older

about

A song about soul pressure and trust in seeing one day at a time.

lyrics

I, thought I'd find,
What's truly mine,
When it's not mine.

He would run up mountains high,
Just to have your kiss goodnight,

You'd get hitched and fly to Spain,
If he could just recall your name,

Spit his poison, play the fool,
Your dress lies in the coldest room,

In a haze, from what he gave to you,
Was it all worth what he took from you.

Now that I am older,
I feel like I am looking, looking,
The world is tired of waiting,
The best things in life come when you least expect it.

Hey child, don't get down,
You were lost and now you're found,

My sister we are dirt,
dirt we came,
& we'll return,

My brother we are dirt,
dirt we came,
& we'll return,

Hey child, grow real tall,
Let the light hit the weak and small,

Now that I am older,
I feel like I am looking, looking,
The world is tired of waiting,
The best things in life come when you least expect it.
