We can talk all night, we can talk all day
We can play charades when there is nothing to say
You turn me on to the idea of growing old

I can make you angry you can make me a smile
We can make origami with the kids for a while
You turn me on to the idea of growing old

Now it won’t be long
No, it won’t be long
You turn me on to the idea of growing old

We can lay around and count the number of times
I've acted foolish and you’ve rolled your eyes
You turn me on to the idea of growing old

You in your kerchief, and me in my cap
We can settle down for an afternoon nap
You turn me on to the idea of growing old

Now it won’t be long
No, it won’t be long
You turn me on to the idea of growing old

    General Commentthis song is about a relationship where the people involved are so in love that they don't mind growing old together, in fact they look forwards to it. It's such a nice song, rather sappy but in a totally forgiveable way.

    General Commenti had this song in my head all day yesterday and i'm still not sick of it. i love it so much because it's really romantic but not excessively. this song makes me feel optimistic.

    General CommentThis reminds me (lyrically) of "When I'm Sixty-Four" by The Beatles. I love the whole topic of growing old with someone. It's a comfy, relaxed kind of love. A very cute song about how when you really connect with someone, the idea of sharing everything, even the boring details of everyday life, makes you love the idea of getting up there in years with the person.

    A nice song about looking forward to the future. Optimistic to the max. :p
