Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.
Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.

Old man look at my life,
Twenty four
And there's so much more
Live alone in a paradise
That makes me think of two.

Love lost, such a cost,
Give me things
That don't get lost.
Like a coin that won't get tossed
Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life
I'm a lot like you
I need someone to love me
The whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes
And you can tell that's true.

Lullabies, look in your eyes,
Run around the same old town.
Doesn't mean that much to me
To mean that much to you.

I've been first and last
Look at how the time goes past.
But I'm all alone at last.
Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life
I'm a lot like you
I need someone to love me
The whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes
And you can tell that's true.

Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.
Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.

    i'm a lot like you were.

    Old man look at my life,
    twenty four
    and there's so much more
    live alone in a paradise

    that don't get lost. Like a coin that won't get tossed
    rolling home to you.

    Lullabies, look in your eyes,
    run around the same old town. Doesn't mean that much to me
    to mean that much to you.

    ah, one look in my eyes
    and you can tell that's true.

    Old man look at my life,
    i'm a lot like you were. Old man look at my life,
    i'm a lot like you were.
