Lyrics

VERSE
When I was about ten years old
My father told me a truth (he said:)
“You’re educated when you know what you don’t know
And that won’t happen in your youth.”

VERSE
(He continued:) “Wisdom comes with experience and age
There’s no other way to get there.
We are but actors upon a stage
Starting out a long way from anywhere.”

PRE-CHORUS
So now that I’m experienced enough to be called wise
What will happen with the rest of my life?

CHORUS
As I sit here today contemplating getting older
Am I wiping out or growing bolder?
Aging is not for the faint of heart
Am I falling apart or a priceless work of art?
I choose to believe that today starts today

SOLO/BRIDGE
I’m going to ignite my passions
And live my life ’til the day I die

Repeat CHORUS/SOLO/Repeat CHORUS/TAG
Yes, wisdom in tow, just watch me go
