Older

Ben Platt


I was walking down 57th street towards Park
With the same old song in my same old heart
Making plans I'm gonna do when I get olderPassed a gray-haired man and I found his eyes
It's like he knew my thoughts and he read my mind
Saying life is gonna find you when it's supposed to
Felt my feet stop short and I turned my head
Tried to lean into every word he said
Then he saidWhen you are younger
You'll wish you're older
Then when you're older
You'll wish for time to turn around
Don't let your wonder turn into closure
When you get older
When you get older
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, ohHave I killed my thoughts right before their prime?
Have I bit my tongue one too many times
Have I said it all the way I really meant to?
If I wait 'til my tomorrow comes
Is the waiting all I've ever done?
And will I get to
Get to know myself in the place I am
Get to fall in love with another man and understand
When you are younger
You'll wish you're older
Then when you're older
You'll wish for time to turn around
Don't let your wonder turn into closure
When you get older
When you get olderOh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, ohWhen you are younger
You'll wish you're older
Then when you get older
You'll wish for time to turn around
Don't let your wonder turn into closure
When you get older
When you get older
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
