Sasha Sloan – Older lyrics
[Verse 1]
I used to shut my door while my mother screamed in the kitchen
I'd turn the music up, get high and try not to listen
To every little fight 'cause neither one was right

[Pre-Chorus]
I swore I'd never be like them
But I was just a kid back then

[Chorus]
The older I get, the more that I see
My parents aren't heroes, they're just like me
And loving is hard, it don't always work
You just try your best not to get hurt
I used to be mad, but now I know
Sometimes it's better to let someone go
It just hadn't hit me yet
The older I get


[Verse 2]
I used to wonder why, why they could never be happy
I used to close my eyes and pray for a whole 'nother family
Where everything was fine, one that felt like mine

[Pre-Chorus]
I swore I'd never be like them
But I was just a kid back then

[Chorus]
The older I get, the more that I see
My parents aren't heroes, they're just like me
And loving is hard, it don't always work
You just try your best not to get hurt
I used to be mad, but now I know
Sometimes it's better to let someone go
It just hadn't hit me yet
The older I get

[Chorus]
The older I get, the more that I see
My parents aren't heroes, they're just like me
And loving is hard, it don't always work
You just try your best not to get hurt
I used to be mad, but now I know
Sometimes it's better to let someone go
It just hadn't hit me yet
The older I get

    as child in broken family, this song related to me too much. basically it s just a child experiences in broken family.

    when your family not like your friend's family. happily loving harmonious family. loving mother with caring father , cozy home make you wish get another family. i used to stay at friend house and envy their family then go home and cry alone at bed for the wish that i will never get. haha
    in my young age (8-20yrs) i keep blaming my parent on why do they have to divorce, why my family incomplete, etc the hatred.

    it hit me when i got older and married, i just understand that my parent divorce is the best for them. its better than them keep screaming, fight every night for the children sake.

    this song actually spoke up what my heart feels and understand its okay to divorce.
    being love, give love, keep loving its not easy. its hard and its has value in your life.
