co-written with Dan Navarro. About pre-mature maturity. Inspired by a late night conversation with a young songwriter wise beyond his years.


Can’t seem to remember being a kid
Didn’t like the music the other boys did
Sang Woody and Dylan and Bobbie McGee
Yeah, I’ve always been older than me
In school I’d get homework, but I’d write a song
I felt like my sentence was 4 years too long
‘Cause I had a vision my teachers couldn’t see
Yeah, I’ve always been older than me
Now growing up can be tough
When the years on the calendar are never enough
Like waiting on a train that keeps passing by
And the engineer’s waving goodbye
All the girls at my high school like boys on the team
They couldn’t fathom my musical dream
‘Cause I felt a love that those girls couldn’t see
Yeah, I’ve always been older than me
Now after a few more trips ‘round the sun
Maybe no one will notice I’m just 21
Age is just a number we can’t never see
And I’ve always been older than me
