Older…

So, as of today I am almost a quarter of a century old, haha. My day hasn’t been that spectacular (mostly just busy), but it has been good. I didn’t want to make a big deal out of my birthday this year…the only logic I can offer for this is that big parties and events have never really held that much appeal for me, and at as I get older, scrambling to assemble a bunch of people more or less just for the sake of assembly seems like a bit of a waste.

I could copy my housemate’s idea and copy the lyrics of “24” by Switchfoot, but I’ll try to be at least somewhat of an individual. Besides, this song may represent where I am this birthday a little more accurately. Here are the lyrics to “Older” by Colbie Calliat:

Waited all my life for this day to come
I feel like letting go, life goes on
Wasting no more time
So much to be done
Everything works out
So they say
Over my shoulder, it’s tough getting older
Yeah, yeah…….

(Chorus)
Seems like nothing is black and white anymore
Shades of grey and I feel a weight over my shoulder
It’s tough getting older
I always thought that I knew where I’d want to go
Now I’m here and I find that I’m still getting colder
It’s kinda tough getting older

Here before my eyes, many roads ahead
Time for me to choose one way now
If I take a chance
What lies down the road
Feeling so confused, turned round
On and on, on and on
yeah yeah…..

Seems like nothing is black and white anymore
Shades of grey and I feel a weight over my shoulder
It’s tough getting older
I always thought that I knew where I’d want to go
Now I’m here and I find that I’m still getting colder
It’s kinda tough getting older

Waited all my life for this day to come
I feel like letting go, life goes on
Over my shoulder (on and on)
It’s tough getting older (on and on, on)
Yeah, yeah…..

Seems like nothing is black and white anymore
Shades of grey and I feel a weight over my shoulder
It’s tough getting older
I always thought that I knew where I’d want to go
Now I’m here and I find that I’m still getting colder
It’s kinda tough getting older

Seems like nothing is black and white anymore
Shades of grey and I feel a weight over my shoulder
It’s tough getting older
(fades out)
