stop this train

So scared of getting older

I'm only good at being young

So I play the numbers game to find a way to say that life has just begun

Had a talk with my old man

Said help me understand

He said turn 68, you'll renegotiate

Don't stop this train

Don't for a minute change the place you're in

Don't think I couldn't ever understand

I tried my hand

Honestly we'll never stop this train

 

These lyrics pretty much sum up the inspiration for this one. I think we all from time to time feel the sudden panic from the realization that time is speeding on, and all we can do is grasp it tightly until we can't hold on anymore. And yes, I know I'm young, but I'm definitely not immune to this feeling.

 

I've been wanting to do a post like this for forever. I studied photos of my parents and grandparents to get an idea on how I will age and where my wrinkles would be. They actually have aged much better than this though. :-)

 

I showed Bryan this picture and jokingly asked if he will still love me when I'm this old. Without missing a beat he replied, “From a distance.” haha.

 

Hope y'all have a great week!
