Lori McKenna - When You're My Age Lyrics


feat. Hillary Lindsey & Liz Rose

When you’re my age
I hope the world is kinder than it seems to be right now
And I hope the front page isn’t just a reminder
Of how we keep letting each other down

When I was your age, things didn’t seem to be this hard
Riding bikes out on the street, playing tag in the back yard

You’ll outgrow your shoes
You’ll outgrow your bed
You’ll outgrow this house
Just don’t forget
When you’re all grown up
But you don’t feel that way
You’re still gonna be my baby
Even when you’re my age

When you’re my age
You’ll still be full of questions that I wish I had the answers to right now
Those dark times might make you second guess it
But I bet love will still be making the world go round

When I was your age, I didn’t worry like I think you do
Back then innocence was something you could hold onto

You’ll outgrow your shoes
You’ll outgrow your bed
You’ll outgrow this house
Just don’t forget
When you’re all grown up
But you don’t feel that way
You’re still gonna be my baby
Even when you’re my age

When you have kids someday, I hope you teach them the Lord’s Prayer
Before they go to bed at night
Like my daddy did for me and his mother before him
Well something about it just keeps you right
And I hope you don’t work too much overtime
So you can be right there beside them when they close their little eyes

Cause they’ll outgrow their shoes
They’ll outgrow their beds
They’ll outgrow that house
And you can’t stop it
Life will line your face
Time will turn the page
But they’re still gonna be your babies
Just like you’re still gonna be my baby
Even when you’re my age
Even when you’re my age
