The Older I Get

Lyrics:

The older I get

The more I think

You only get a minute, better live while you're in it

Because 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
