I got old in the last few years
I got old in the last few years
A thousand heartbreaks steep
I once loved a man beyond words
He broke me in two and it was good
Because I learned to let go of my fear
And I knew it would end before we even started
The first man in my life to give me hope
That things could be different
And then the slow destruction of me
Slowly crumbling and I snapped
I may have already told you about this
I have a lifetime of war and death behind
I’d cry if I couldn’t laugh through the pain alone
Sometimes I cry too when the laughter falls short
