Getting Old
[Verse 1]
When we were younger, time was under careful lock and key
Now it's open, tipped and pouring out all over me
Oh, what a shame, that our days, you explained
I thought you had meant they were long
Not 'til the night when I turned 25, I saw that I had it all wrong

[Verse 2]
I was getting tired of letting all my hours pa**
Hoping someday soon or somewhere, everything would last
Oh, what a shame, when I look at your frame
I know, someday, it will be dust
Not that the thought is that close, 'cause it's not
But I guess it's just creeping up

[Chorus]
Oh, and it's not that bad
It's all this time we've had
Things that could be, became mystery
We'll never know instead
Oh, we're not too far gone
It hasn't been that long
Oh, and our empty tea cup is getting filled up
So we'll never have to dread getting old

Oh, but it's not that bad
It's all this time we've had
Oh, things that could be, became mystery
We'll never know instead
Oh, we're not too far gone
It hasn't been that long
Oh, and our tea cup is getting filled up
So we'll never have to dread getting old
