"How Why Wuz How Why Am" as written by and Nate Albert Dicky Barrett....
I used to talk to cab drivers
Well now I just don't bother
I'd empty out my pockets
If someone asked me for a quarter.
There was a time that I'd give the time
To the old, the weak, and the weird.
I just don't know why this is so
But I've never been so scared
Am I getting older?
Are things getting harder?
I used to never cry
When I would think about my father.
The years went past so goddamn fast.
You know, I've left a lot behind
My devil could care attitude,
You know, I just can't seem to find.
And once upon a time
I never minded very much
I never let it knock me down
Or grind me out of touch
Am I getting older?
Are things getting harder?
I used to never cry
When I would think about my father.
Once I had an outlook
Different than it is
Full of dreams and schemes
It seems they just do not exist
And once I told myself
He will not be missed
Now now now I never thought that I would see the day
I'd ever feel like this
Am I getting older?
Are things getting harder?
I used to never cry
When I would think about my father.
Am I getting older?
Are things getting harder?
I used to never cry
When I would think about my father.
I used to never cry
I used to never cry
I used to never cry
When I would think about my father.

    My InterpretationIt's more about the perspective a few years of age can add to your life.

    In your youth you to tend take your family for granted, and have all sorts of time for hanging out with friends and making big time plans.

    As you get older, even longtime friends tend to grow apart, and you have less time to deal with people's idiosyncrasies.

    Also you get jaded of all the craziness in the world.
