lyrics

WHEN I'M OLDER by Greetings and Goodbyes

verse 1
when I’m older I’ll have time, time to look back on my life
I can read those books that I never read
and write those letters that I never sent
oh, someday down the road, oh, sometime when I’m old

chorus
when I’m older I’ll become who I hoped when I was young
when I’m older I’ll become who I’m dreaming of
when I’m older I’ll become who it is I think I’ll love
when I’m older I’ll become who I’m dreaming of

verse 2
when my youth begins to fade, then who I was will slip away
I can call those friends that I haven’t seen
and go some place that I always dreamed
oh, someday down the road, oh, sometime when I’m old

chorus 2
when I’m older I’ll become who I hoped when I was young
when I’m older I’ll become who I’m dreaming of
when I’m older I’ll become who it is I think I’ll love
when I’m older I’ll become who I’m dreaming of

bridge
time won’t wait for anyone, a few short breaths and then it’s gone
time won’t wait, time won’t wait for me
time won’t wait for anyone, we close our eyes and then it’s gone
no, time won’t wait, time won’t wait for me

chorus 3
when I’m older I’ll become who I hoped when I was young
when I’m older I’ll become who I’m dreaming of

outtro
when I’m older... when I’m older... when I’m older
when I’m older... when I’m older... when I’m older
