lyrics

There's a little less hair on the top of my head,
and a little more stuck to the sink.
My memory is fading, eyesight is failing,
making it easy to see
that I'm more like, I’m more like the man I thought I'd never be.

My temper is quicker, waistline is thicker,
and I'm finding it hard to believe
I buy shoes made for comfort, ’cause when both of your feet hurt,
you choose orthopedic relief.
Yes, I'm more like, I’m more like the man I thought I'd never be

I’m in more of a hurry, and sometimes I worry
when life isn’t just as it seems.
But not long ago there was a fork in the road
and a change to the way that I think.

I’m still scared of the silence, but when it gets quiet
I stay though I’d much rather leave.
And I am more sentimental and tear up a little
when my wife and I both now agree
that I'm more like, I’m more like the man I thought I'd never be.
The man I thought I'd never be.
