The Alan Parsons Project - Old and wise
Tekst en muziek: Alan Parsons en Eric Woolfson
(1982)






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 ohohoh, 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 ohohoh, 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
