"A Song For Old Songs" Lyrics

Oh, the stories The stories that you told Of being young And slowly getting old It makes you afraid, But it happens every day

You were my shade In a world with a thousand suns You couldn't stay It was everything or none I was destined to lose When you had to choose

It's easy to have a better half When you feel no good at all It's easy just to lay on down Once you've had a fall You treat me like I'm crazy You must think be to be a fool I never played your games, Yet somehow broke the rules

When you want me Just grab me off the shelf Right where you left me When you had me to yourself Just blow the dust off my face And put me back in my place
