Lyrics

Gettin? Older by Craig Kelley

I saw you just the other day at the class reunion
Standing with your old friend who never cared that much for me
It took me back to my first guitar and my first broken heart
The sun was shining in the oak grove, sneaking through the willow trees
And I was a rebel, a long-hair, looking for the truth
You were an angel, a mother?s dream-child, sent to rescue me

I?m gettin? older, so much older, I?m gettin? older than yesterday
I?m gettin? older, hope a little bolder, a little better day by day

I saw you standing there across the crowded room
Looking more beautiful than I remember you
And what I?d give for one more taste, oh, the memory of your lips
And the night we went to the movies and I put my arms around you
You smiled and slowly whispered, ?I want you to be my man?
And I thought we had it all, the golden moment of truth
But I was wrong like so many times before
And we?d drive all night and talk about our dreams
And make promises too easy to break

I?m gettin? older, a little older, I?m gettin? older day by day by day
I?m gettin? older, hope a little bolder, a little better than yesterday

I?m gettin? older, so much older, a little better than yesterday
