SKILLET


The Older I Get Lyrics

The walls between
You and I
Always pushing us apart
Nothing left but scars, fight after fight

The space between
Our calm and rage
Started growing shorter
Disappearing slowly, day after day

I was sitting there waiting in my room for you
You were waiting for me too
And it makes me wonder

The older I get
Will I get over it?
It's been way too long for the times we missed
I didn't know then it would hurt like this

But I think the older I get
Maybe I'll get over it
It's been way too long for the times we missed
I can't believe it still hurts like this

The time between
Those cutting words
Built up our defenses
Never made no sense, it just made me hurt

Do you believe
That time heals all wounds?
It started getting better
But it's easy not to fight when I'm not with you

I was sitting there waiting in my room for you
You were waiting for me too
And it makes me wonder

The older I get
Will I get over it?
It's been way too long for the times we missed
I didn't know then it would hurt like this

But I think the older I get
Maybe I'll get over it
It's been way too long for the times we missed
I can't believe it still hurts like this

What was I waiting for?
I should've taken less and given you more
I should've weathered the storm

Need to say so bad
What were you waiting for?
This could have been the best we'd ever had

The older I get
Will I get over it?
It's been way too long for the times we missed
I didn't know then it would hurt like this

But I think the older I get
Maybe I'll get over it
It's been way too long for the times we missed
I can't believe it still hurts like this

Hurts like this
Just getting older
I'm not getting over you
I'm trying to wish it didn't hurt like this

It's been way too long for the times we missed
I can't believe it still hurts like this

Skillet, the best? hahahahaha, yeah the best Christian Rock band, but Disturbed takes care of me, when i'm angry, i listen to them, Skillet is self conceded, they need to relate their songs to fans!!!
