Young Man Old Man

Young man, you laugh so loud
It’s so easy for you
You’re acting too proud

Old man, you cry too often
It’s so hard for you
Saying goodbye, lowering a coffin

Young man, life is too short to judge
Old man, life is too long to forget
Who can say when the time is right
To laugh or cry without pride or regret

Young man, feel it today
We need your faith
Before someone takes it away

Old man, don’t lose it
You’re close now
You know God won’t quit

I think I’ll crawl into the joke
Maybe open up to what’s inside
Or maybe just open myself
I remember acting like that
Underneath the light outside

Young man, life is too short to judge
Old man, life is too long to forget
Who can say when the time is right
To laugh or cry without pride or regret
