I used to talk to cab drivers, well, now I just don't bother
I'd empty out my pockets if someone asked me for a quarter
There was a time that I'd give the dime to the old, the weak, and the weird
I just don't know why this is so, but I've never been so scared

Am I getting older?
Are things getting harder?
I used to never cry
When I would think about my father

The years went past so goddamn fast, you know, I've left a lot behind
My devil could care attitude, you know, I just can't seem to find
And once upon a time, I never minded very much
I never let it knock me down or grind me out of touch

Am I getting older?
Are things getting harder?
I used to never cry
When I would think about my father

But once I had an outlook, different than it is
Full of dreams and schemes, it seems they just do not exist
And once I told myself, he will not be missed
No no no, I never thought that I would see the day, I'd ever feel like this

Am I getting older?
Are things getting harder?
I used to never cry
When I would think about my father

Am I getting older?
Are things getting harder?
I used to never cry
When I would think about my father

I used to never cry
I used to never cry
I used to never cry when I would think about my father
