Skillet – The Older I Get lyrics

The walls between
You and I

Always pushing us apart nothing left but scars fight after fight

The space between
Our calm and rage
Started growing shorter, disappearing slowly day after day

I was sitting there waiting in my room for you
You were waiting for me too
And it makes me wonder

The older I get
Will I get over it
It's been way too long for the times we missed

I didn't know then it would hurt like this but I think
The older I get
Maybe I'll get over it
It's been way too long for the times we missed
I can't believe it still hurts like this

The time between
Those cutting words
Built up our defenses never made no sense it just made me hurt
Do you believe
That time heals all wounds
It started getting better but it's easy not to fight when I'm not with you

I was sitting there waiting in my room for you
You were waiting for me too
And it makes me wonder
The older I get
Will I get over it
It's been way too long for the times we missed
I didn't know then it would hurt like this but I think
The older I get
Maybe I'll get over it
It's been way too long for the times we missed
I can't believe it still hurts like this

What was I waiting for
I should've taken less and given you more
I should've weathered the storm
I need to say so bad
What were you waiting for
This could have been the best we ever had

The older I get
Will I get over it
It's been way too long for the times we missed
I didn't know then it would hurt like this but I think
The older I get
Maybe I'll get over it
It's been way too long for the times we missed
I can't believe it still hurts like this
Hurts like this.
Hurts like this.

[Altro:]
I'm just getting older
I'm not getting over you I'm trying to
I wish it didn't hurt like this
It's been way too long for the times we missed
I can't believe it still hurts like this

    I love this song. I dedicated it to when I loved a girl that I was about to date so much, when ironically, we both had to move, and I never was able to get over the pain in which had torn at both of us and destroyed my heart at the time and I thought that maybe, just maybe, if I got older, I could get over the pain that had stricken me and hit my heart hard. It has not fully mended hardly at all, and its been 6 months since I last saw her. The day that I moved in May. *Sigh* I'm not sure if I can ever get over it. >.>
