Whispering Jesse (John Denver)

 

"I'm just an old cowboy, from high Colorado
I'm too old to ride anymore, too blind to see
I sleep in the city now, away from my mountains
Away from the cabin we always called home"

Writing (Elton John)

 

"Will the things we wrote today
Sound as good tomorrow
We will still be writing
In approaching years
Stifling yawns on Sundays
As the weekends disappear"

Old 67 (Elton John)

 

"Old '67 what a time it was
What a time of innocence, what a time we've lost
Raise a glass and have a laugh, have a laugh or two
Here's to old '67 and an older me and you"

Little Sister (Concrete Blonde)

"Mama's nest is empty, all the babies grown and gone
And you're talking. I can hear me, you should hear you.
Look into a younger face that used to be my own
Years apart they make it harder to be near you."

"Reaching Out" (Kate Bush)

 

"See how the child reaches out instinctively
To feel how fire will feel.
See how the man reaches out instinctively
For what he cannot have."

Friends with You (John Denver):

 

"What a friend we have in time
Gives us children, makes us wine
Tells us what to take or leave behind
And the gifts of growing old
Are the stories to be told
Of the feelings more precious than gold"

Dixie Chicks:  "Long Way Round"

 

"Well, I fought with a stranger, and I met myself
I opened my mouth, and I heard myself
It can get pretty lonely when you show yourself
Guess I could have made it easier on myself"

SIlent All These Years (Tori Amos):

 

"Years go by, will I still be waiting for somebody else to understand
Years go by, if I'm stripped of my beauty and the orange clouds raining in my head
Years go by, will I choke on my tears 'til, finally there is nothing left
One more casualty, you know we're too easy, easy, easy"

Winter (Tori Amos):

 

"Snow can wait, I forgot my mittens
Wipe my nose, get my new boots on
I get a little warm in my heart when I think of winter
I put my hand in my father's glove
I run off where the drifts get deeper
Sleeping beauty trips me with a frown
I hear a voice "You must learn to stand up for yourself"
"'Cause I can't always be around"

’39: Queen (a terrific song on every level, in my opinion; space explorers go on a one year mission; upon their return the ones left behind have grown old or died because of some law of physics; I never got beyond college biology but still think it’s a great tune).
