This getting older
Ain't for cowards
This getting older
Is a lot to go through
Ain't a gonna need this body
Much longer
Ain't a gonna need this body
Much more

Well I can't see much
Like I used to
And I can't run like the wind
I don't sleep more
Than just a few hours
I can't remember where I've been

[Chorus]
Ain't a gonna need this body much longer
Ain't a gonna need this body much more
I put in a ten million hours
Washed up and worn out for sure

Well all my friends are
Sick or dying
And I'm here all by myself
All I got left
Is a head full of memories
And a thought of my upcoming death

[Chorus]

Well I know one thing
I'll die easy
And I know my life
Is not in vain
Because I loved
And I fought with many
And the people they loved me just the same

[Chorus]

This getting older
Well it ain't for cowards
This getting older
Is a lot to go through
