Saw your picture by the mirror
Your eyes were brighter from far away
You said since you joined this city circus
you'd lost your purpose and wilder ways
But they're still underneath the surface
Down beneath the dust
And there lies all that you've lost

You're not as old as you think
You're not as frayed at the seams
It's not as hard to be perfect as you've been led to believe
Not just imaginary people live in love songs and dreams
So lean into the moment and capture the scene
You're not as old as you think
Just don't let it take a lifetime to realise it

Magazine says your life is wasted
But you can save it with beauty cream
They don't know these lines and spaces across our faces
are maps and memories of where we've been
Don't let them prey upon you
Don't believe the hype
Don't let it weigh on your mind

You're not as old as you think
You're not as frayed at the seams
It's not as hard to be perfect as you've been led to believe
Not just imaginary people live in love songs and dreams
So lean into the moment and capture the scene
You're not as old as you think
Just don't let it take a lifetime to realise it

You've got a body of its own design
You're not a number in a chorus line
You're out of rhythm but you still have some time

You're not as old as you think
You're not as frayed at the seams
It's not as hard to be perfect as you've been led to believe
Not just imaginary people live in love songs and dreams
So lean into the moment and capture the scene
You're not as old as you think
Just don't let it take a lifetime to realise it

You're not as old as you think
So don't let it take a lifetime
