She's a little more than a child herself
Than the children of her own
All her living's done for someone else
The only life she's ever known
All the dreams and desires that she had
She had to put 'em all on hold

While another young heart became an old soul

River of life keeps rushing by
She just rolls with the flow
She's seen it all through world weary eyes
She takes it like it comes and goes

She's forgotten more about life and love
Than most will ever know
While another young heart became an old soul

Laugh too little and you cry too much
Way too long without that gentle touch
Weight of the world resting down in your bones
Pretty soon you've got an old soul
Old soul, old soul

Laugh too little and you cry too much
Way too long without that gentle touch
Weight of the world resting down in your bones
Pretty soon you've got an old soul
Old soul, old soul
