Name of Song: We get old and soften

We get old and soften,
Even when we’re young,
Time continues on and on,
I now present my song.

It happens one day in future,
This getting old and grey,
When you’re young not noticed,
Until appears one day.

Bodies age and soften,
Not like when you were young,
And one day they don’t work the same,
Then thoughts your time has come.

Chorus
How do you get old and live,
The way you used to be,
No one tells you when you’re borne,
Give anything to see.
How do you get old and live,
The way you used to be,
No one tells you when you’re borne,
Give anything to see.

Bridge
We play the game of bodies,
Ignoring who we are,
Until we face that time in life
When we know we’re gonna die.
Looking at your body,
Lifeless, but was yours,
It takes a while to disconnect
and remember you are cause.
