A song about memories, and change. Picture an older man singing to a 14 year old boy.
When I Was Your Age

When I was your age,
We did things different.
We honored our fathers, family and friends.
When I was your age,
Time was the essence.
We used it so wisely, like it mattered, back then.
When I was your age,
Oh, don't you believe me?
You think my memories are scattered, and thin?
When you've lived as long as I have,
They'll call you a sage
If you keep your memories
Like I've kept my memories.
Yes, I remember when I was your age.

When I was your age,
We lived in Milwaukee.
We had milk delivered three times a week.
When I was your age,
I had a bicycle!
I kissed my first girlfriend, but just on the cheek.
When I was your age,
I remember it clearly...
Gas was a quarter, they pumped it for free.
I see you're starting to listen.
I'm not a crazy old man
'Cause I've kept my memories
Like you'll keep your memories...
Ah, yes, I remember when I was your age.
Yes, I remember when I was your age.
