This is how I feel about getting older

Written by on November 2, 2018 in Song, Story and Poetry with 0 Comments

I first wrote these lyrics and the melody in 1990. After many years it evolved into the form we have here and was finally recorded in 2007 for my 52nd birthday. Arranged and produced by Stacey Young.

No apologies
Sensuality belongs to me
All the lies are fading
Truth and power waiting
Here for me!

No apologies
All the roads I’ve traveled for so long
Make me realize I’m
Strong and proud of who I’ve
Come to be.

No apologies
Time is really not the enemy
Gifts abound that only
Those who live the years
can truly see.

No apologies
for the love I feel inside of me
Hold the writer’s pen and
Play with grandchildren, I’m
So happy!

…Seasons come and go and I am growing old
Now, hear me sing!

No apologies, oh no apologies, oh no apologies

Oh, no apologies
Sensuality belongs to me
Life is full and rich and
Twilight promises
There’s more to see…

and more to be…

and more to know…

and more to grow…
