Daily Wisdom Words, DWW Music Prompt

OLD MAN BY NEIL YOUNG

OLD MAN BY NEIL YOUNG

Hi,

I woke up after a necessary body rest to ‘Hey, you’ve not prepared for the prompt today! It’s almost 4:00PM (Nigerian time)

I was damn clueless, that’s how I get when asleep. Even as I’m typing this now, I still feel asleep. Yes! I’m a sleep person. I love sleep 😊

If you get to see any typo here… please blame it on sleep not me.

So, I hurriedly sent a message to Michelle Hugelmann and she suggested two beautiful song if which I chose one. Thank you Michelle!

Let’s get into shall we. Wait! I forgot to say something: MERRY CHRISTMAS IN ADVANCE 🌲🌹💞

LYRICS

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

I see your gentle smile
reminding me of your time
we knew we’d meet here
how I’ll miss those days.

Alas, love’s take denied
we needed to share more
than the same sun
perhaps we knew better.

So alone we’ll sing
we’re alike yet apart
you needed my eyes, my hands
I’m a lot like you are.

Never mind what
sadly changed
impulses matures with age
lips quivers in expectations
eager to please
vestige of beauty
grandly worships
fierceness to be old
veiled in loveliness
intensifies the whole
wounded affection writes
frivolously bold
the enchantment of
whitered sense

My old man
Wasn’t in my life
I’m nothing like him
He fell into a bottle
A drank and drank
And drank
He was a nasty drunk
I was three when my
Mom kicked him out
Leaving her to raise
10 hungry mouths
My mother was
A saint
She is gone now
But she is in
Heaven
I have no doubt
