"The Older I Get" as written by Brian Howes and John Cooper....
The walls between
You and I

Always pushing us apart nothing left but scars fight after fight

The space between
Our calm and rage
Started growing shorter, disappearing slowly day after day

I was sitting there waiting in my room for you
You were waiting for me too
And it makes me wonder

The older I get
Will I get over it?
It's been way too long for the times we missed

I didn't know then it would hurt like this, but I think
The older I get
Maybe I'll get over it
It's been way too long for the times we missed
I can't believe it still hurts like this

The time between
Those cutting words
Built up our defenses never made no sense, it just made me hurt
Do you believe
That time heals all wounds?
It started getting better, but it's easy not to fight when I'm not with you

What was I waiting for?
I should have taken less and given you more
I should have weathered the storm
I need to say so bad
What were you waiting for?
This could have been the best we ever had

I'm just getting older
I'm not getting over you, I'm trying to
I wish it didn't hurt like this
It's been way too long for the times we missed
I can't believe it still hurts like this

    General Commenti agree about how its all about perspective artists dont just write for themselves they right for the people who need to hear these songs to get them through to find a purpose relate to something or for whatever reason they have to me it make sme think fo when i really liked someone alot and then we stopped talking when we started talkign again it made me realize how happy i was with us talking and how much i wish that we could have spent that time we lost together or talking to eachother
