Old Man

Old man look at my life,
I’m a lot like you were.
Old man look at my life,
I’m a lot like you were.

Old man look at my life,
Twenty four
And there’s so much more
Live alone in a paradise
That makes me think of two.

Love lost, such a cost,
Give me things
That don’t get lost.
Like a coin that won’t get tossed
Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life
I’m a lot like you
I need someone to love me
The whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes
And you can tell that’s true.

Lullabies, look in your eyes,
Run around the same old town.
Doesn’t mean that much to me
To mean that much to you.

I’ve been first and last
Look at how the time goes past.
But I’m all alone at last.
Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life
I’m a lot like you
I need someone to love me
The whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes
And you can tell that’s true.

Old man look at my life,
I’m a lot like you were.
Old man look at my life,
I’m a lot like you were.

    John I really think you should set up a facebook account! Just follow me and paul lewis man! I only use my Facebook for good! its full of classic cinema and good music. and its been lovely talking to paul lewis. he seems really productive and I’m making music videos for his songs at the moment. you should do it man and loin the debate. Add loads of friends if you want (I have) then I just blocked them so I don’t see them but they can see my work! It can be a force of good my friend! You just need to avoid the big Paulies of the world on their and its another platform for your art. they link blogs really well. think about it man! It would be good!

    Thanks. It’s completely candid. I was just about to leave the coffee shop when I saw the opportunity. I knew it would be a fleeting moment so I guessed the exposure and distance (manual camera). Luckily it worked out.
