lyrics

I thought I'd stop by
To see what I'd been missing.
But my biggest wish
Is to just stop wishing.
I wanted to find out
What I'd been waiting for,
But nobody knows how to wait anymore.

But you and I
We're not as young as we were,
And it takes longer and longer
To get anywhere.

You and I
We're not so young anymore,
And everything looks different
From the way it did before.

This is where I come
To get away from myself,
This is where I come
When I want to be someone else.
I've got too much to think about
And nothing to say.
I'm just anxious and angry
And a long way away.

You and I
We're not as young as before.
In fact I'm starting to wonder
If we ever really were.

You and I
We've been gone for years.
In fact I'm starting to wonder
If we were ever really here.

You and I
We're not as young as before.
The past is catching up with us
And the future's getting shorter.

But you know and I know
It's not so bad getting older
If you've got a firm hand to hold
And you can lean on a shoulder.

You and I
We're not as young as we were,
And it takes longer and longer
To get anywhere.

But you know and I know
It's not so bad getting older
If you've got a shoulder to lean on
And a firm hand to hold.

You and I
We're not so young anymore,
And everything looks different
From the way it did before.

But you know and I know
It's not so bad getting older
If you've got a firm hand to hold
And you can lean on a shoulder.

You and I
We don't need much these days,
We just want to see the horizon
With nothing in the way.

But you know and I know
It's not so bad getting older
If you've got a shoulder to lean on
And a firm hand to hold.

But you know and I know
It's not so bad getting older
If you've got a firm hand to hold
And you can lean on a shoulder.
