Song Description

Underscoring how many senior citizens feel ignored by society, as if they were invisible. This song turns that around and pays tribute to what they have done to build the world we live in.

Story Behind the Song

We don't give our senior citizens the credit that they deserve for building the world we live in. We look right through them on the street. We should learn from them and honor them.


I See You
© 2019 words and music Grant Maloy Smith (BMI) and Mike Greenly (ASCAP)

Young and strong and all of that
They run by and don't look back
They didn't seem to notice?
you were leaning on a cane

You were once like they are now
Starry eyed, laughing loud?
You spent a lifetime building up
The world we have today

Time runs like rivers to the sea
Time pulls you in like gravity

You feel fragile - but you're strong?
Think you're invisible - but you're wrong
I've been inspired by your courage all along
I see your whole life shining through?
I see you

After all the years you've lived
Giving all you had to give
Folks call you a "senior" now
As if that were your name

You built cars and factories
Saved us all from tyranny
After all your eyes have seen
Your world just ain't the same

Time runs like rivers to the sea
Time pulls you in like gravity


All the friends and all the loved ones
who have gone
Every brave face, every smile that you put on?
In these twilight hours, wishing can't hold back the dawn
