When I'm Older

Lyricist: Catherine McGrath    Composer: Catherine McGrath

When I'm older, maybe then I'll take it a little slower
When Summer starts to turn into October
I'll take the time to look over my shoulder
When I'm older

Right now, it's straight ahead
Gonna do all the things I haven't done yet
No apologies, no regrets
Gonna make the kind of memories we'll never forget
I wanna make a lot of big mistakes
Live and love and learn the hard way
'Cause these are gonna be the good old days
Someday, when I'm older

When I'm older, and I've lived a real good life that's almost over
And the end of this road is getting closer
I might turn the music down a little lower
When I'm older

Right now, I'm gonna turn it up
Sing every song at the top of my lungs
Dance every dance just for fun
Do it all while I'm still young
I wanna make a lot of big mistakes
Live and love and learn the hard way
'Cause these are gonna be the good old days
Someday, when I'm older

When I'm older
When I'm older, I might take the time to look over my shoulder
But not just yet 'cause

Right now, it's straight ahead
Gonna do all the things I haven't done yet
No apologies, no regrets
Gonna make the kind of memories we'll never forget
I wanna make a lot of big mistakes
Live and love and learn the hard way
'Cause these are gonna be the good old days someday
'Cause these are gonna be the good old days someday
When I'm older
When I'm older, yeah
Oh ooh, oh ooh yeah
When I'm older
