Folk Ray Lamontagne Old Before Your Time
Ray Lamontagne - Old Before Your Time
When I was a younger man lookin` for a pot a` gold
ev`rywhere I turned the doors were closin`.
Took every ounce of faith I had to keep on keepin` on`
n` still I felt like I was only losin`.
I refused then like I do now t` let anybody tie me down
I lost a few good friends along the way.
I was raised up poor an` I wanted more
n` maybe I`m a little too proud.
Lookin` back I see a kid who was just afraid.
Hungry and old before his time.
Through the years I`ve known my share of broken hearted fools
`n those who couldn`t choose a path worth takin`.
There`s nothin` in the world so sad as talkin` to a man.
Never knew his life was his for making.
Ain`t it a-bout time you realize? It`s not worth keepin` score.
You win some you lose some you let it go.
What`s the use of stacking on every failure another stone
`til you find you`ve spent your whole life buildin` walls.
Lonely and old before your time.
It took so long to see that truth was all around me.
Now the wren has gone to roost the sky is turnin` gold.
Like the sky my soul is also turnin`.
Turning from the past at last and all I left behind.
Could it be that I am finally learnin`?
Learnin` I`m deservin` of love and the peaceful heart.
Won`t tear myself apart no more for tryin`.
Tired of lyin` to myself tryin` to buy what can`t be bought.
It`s not livin` that you`re doin` if it feels like dyin`.
It`s cryin` growin` old before your time.
Cryin` growin` old before your time.
