Just Older

Hey, man, it’s been a while
Do you remember me?
When I hit the streets I was 17
A little wild, a little green
I’ve been up and down and in between
After all those years
Can you believe I’m still
Chasing the dream
But I ain’t looking over my shoulder

I like the bed I’m sleeping in
It’s just like me, it’s broken in
It’s not old – just older
Like a favourite pair of torn blue jeans
This skin I’m in it’s alright with me
It’s not old – just older

It’s good to see your face
You ain’t no worse for wear
Breathing that California air
When we took on the world
When we were young and brave
We got secrets that we’ll take
To the grave
And we’re standing here
Shoulder to shoulder


I’m not old ebough to sing the blues
But I wore the holes in the
Soles of these shoes
You can roll the dice ’til they
Call your bluff
But you can’t win until you’re
Not afraid to lose


Well, I look in the mirror
I don’t hate what I see
There’s a few more lines
Staring back at me
The nights have grown a little colder
Hey, man, I gotta run
Now you take care
If you see coach T.
Tell him I cut my hair
It’s beem all these years
Can you believe I’m still
Chasing dreams
But ain’t looking over my shoulder
