When Did I Get Old?

When Did I Get Old?

“Material wealth has no real value. What really matters is the time we spend with those we love; for such is the cycle of life, for each individual, on this troubled planet.”

When Did I Get Old?

Lyrics: Derrick Clinton Dove.
Vocals: American blues group, ‘Derrick Dove and the Peacekeepers’.

When did I get old, when did everything change?
I don’t recognise this world,
I don’t remember this pain.
Did time speed up or did I slow down?
When did I get old, it’s all behind me now.
I used to fly so high and not fear a thing.
I was ten foot tall everybody knew my name,
But the world keeps turning statues begin to fall,
And now I’m just a man that used to have it all.
So when did I get old when did everything change?
I don’t recognise this world,
I don’t remember this pain.
Did time speed up or did I slow down,
So when did I get old it’s all behind me now?
Well, there ain’t much left of the man I was.
I’m just a rusty outline covered in dust,
But it happens to the best, the best of us all,
Another one rises while another one falls.
When did I get old when did everything change?
I don’t recognise this world,
I don’t remember this pain.
Did time speed up or did I slow down?
When did I get old it’s all behind me now.
When did I get old it’s almost over now.
