Debra Davis – This Old Man lyrics

He has no skin to cover his bones
He lives in the corner house all alone
Sits in the window and watches the crazy world go by
There you will find me by his side...
He says everybody's spinnin too fast
Takin' your time's a thing of the past
The only one that really lasts is love you'd better give me some of that
This old man is wiser
This old man is true
Opened up my eyes there watching the world go by from a window seat
We make each other's lives complete
He comes alive when the school bell rings
Says "I remember walkin on wings...
We counted every step and never touched the ground
Now I realize we all get lost just to be found
This old man is wiser
This old man is true
Opened up my eyes there watching the world go by from a window seat
We make each other's lives complete
Paint is peeling and the carpet is worn
But over and over now the memories are reborn
Through the window nothing's real to his eye
He says "Remember once my story is told
I'll realize that I am old.
With a smile I'll turn the page
I take my bow, you take the stage..."
This old man is wiser
This old man is true
Opened up my eyes there watching the world go by from a window seat
We make each other's lives complete
