Nellie Mckay – Old Enough lyrics

Never thought I'd live to be old enough
To be old enough to feel like this
And never thought I'd figure it out enough
To be loud enough to make you listen

On and on the meadows sing
We ring out merry the view
On and on my conscience blared
And shared my longing for you

Never thought I'd live to be old enough
To be bold enough to make a difference
Never thought I'd figure it out enough
To be proud enough to take my mission
Never thought I'd live to be smart enough
To have heart enough to find a better way

Never thought I'd live to be old enough
To have soul enough to pass perdition
Never thought I'd count up the years enough
To be clear enough on my convictions

Life ain't all it claims to be
It clings to me when it's blue
Life brought all its pain to me
And shamed my longing for you

Never thought I'd live to be old enough
To be told enough to lose the bullies
Never thought I's to learn enough
To be firm enough to live life fully

Never thought I'd live to be strong enough
To be young enough to find a better song
Then you came along
Never thought I'd live to be old enough
