'My next 30 years' by Tim McGraw.

'I think I'll take a moment, celebrate my age
The ending of an era and the turning of a page
Now it's time to focus in on where I go from here
Lord, have mercy on my next thirty years....

 

Oh, my next thirty years, I'm gonna watch my weight
Eat a few more salads and not stay up so late
Drink a little lemonade and not so many beers
Maybe I'll remember my next thirty years

My next thirty years will be the best years of my life...
Spend precious moments with the ones that I hold dear
Make up for lost time here in my next thirty years...'

"Hello in There" by John Prine. Stunning lyrics by one of America's greatest singer-songwriters.

My favorite song about getting older is "Shades of Gray" by Billy Joel. Not only is Billy Joel my favorite singer/songwriter, he hits the nail on the head with this song. At least it's true in my life, anyway. He talks about how, as we age, distinctions between what we once looked at as black and white may now become more indistinct as we struggle with misconceptions that may have clouded our more youthful thinking. If nothing else, this song always makes me stop and think about how I view things. There are so many more ways of looking at things than just one!

Yup!  One of my favorites, too-never thought "64" would happen to me though...!

As much as I LOVE Simon and Garfinkel, had forgotten "Old Friends!"  THANKS! - for a beautiful memory, which now, sadly, is closer to my own life than when I first heard the song...

Just latched on to "Darkness" myself fairly recently when listening to probably his last album.  Most famous song BEFORE "Hallelujah" was, perhaps, Suzanne.  Quite an artist who shall be missed!

I always loved "Cat's in the Cradle", Harry Chapin. A lot of truth there
