"Older" as written by Michael Blue and Colbie Caillat....
Waited all my life for this day to come
I feel like letting go, life goes on
Wasting no more time
So much to be done
Everything works out, so they say
Over my shoulder,
It's tough getting older
Yeah, yeah

Seems like nothing is black and white anymore
Shades of grey and I feel a weight over my shoulder
It's tough getting older
I always thought that I knew where I'd want to go
Now I'm here and I find that I'm still getting colder
It's kinda tough getting older

Here before my eyes, many roads ahead
Time for me to choose one way now
If I take a chance
What lies down the road
Feeling so confused, turned round
On and on, on and on
Yeah, yeah

Seems like nothing is black and white anymore
Shades of grey and I feel a weight over my shoulder
It's tough getting older
I always thought that I knew where I'd want to go
Now I'm here and I find that I'm still getting colder
It's kinda tough getting older

Waited all my life for this day to come
I feel like letting go, life goes on
Over my shoulder (on and on)
It's tough getting older (on and on, on)
Yeah, yeah

Seems like nothing is black and white anymore
Shades of grey and I feel a weight over my shoulder
It's tough getting older
I always thought that I knew where I'd want to go
Now I'm here and I find that I'm still getting colder
It's kinda tough getting older

Seems like nothing is black and white anymore
Shades of grey and I feel a weight over my shoulder
It's tough getting older

    General CommentLove This Song!!! I love Colbie, but I didn't like how pretty much every song by her is a happy bubbly sunshine song, she's a great writer and those songs are amazing, but she needed something different, and i'm so glad she did a bit of a darker song, I think it's fantastic! absolutely brilliant!

    General Commentwow i never thought about it but lolmisssunshineXoXo might be right. even if it is about grad. highschool i think you can still relate. growing up is a really confusing stage and this whole song expalins it really well.
