Old And Wise
As far as my eyes can see
There are shadows approaching me

And to those I left behind
I wanted you to know
You've always shared my deepest thoughts
You follow where I go

And, oh, when I'm old and wise
Bitter words mean little to me
Autumn winds will blow right through me

And someday in the mist of time
When they asked me if I knew you
I'd smile and say you were a friend of mine

And the sadness would be lifted from my eyes
Oh, when I'm old and wise

As far as my eyes can see
There are shadows surrounding me

And to those I leave behind
I want you all to know
You've always shared my darkest hours
I'll miss you when I go

And, oh, when I'm old and wise
Heavy words that tossed and blew me
Like autumn winds will blow right through me

And someday in the mist of time
When they ask you if you knew me
Remember that you were a friend of mine

As the final curtain falls before my eyes
Oh, when I'm old and wise

As far as my eyes can see

Music by:

Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson
