More of a folk singer, but Mike Cross has a song called Rock 'N Rye. It's about sitting in front of a fire & drinking a toast to the past, reflecting on people, places & past actions and hoping that the memories make you a better person today.  Mike Cross was a part of my teenage & early college years - fabulous story teller who could make you laugh, think and cry all in the same performance.

This one might not be thought of as about getting older, but it is.

"Tower of Song" (Leonard Cohen):

 

Well, my friends are gone and my hair is grey
I ache in the places where I used to play

Just yesterday
Life was such a simple game
A child could play"
