It's this face we both share; the different shades of weathered we both wear. If we trace every line, we'd see you've earned each furrow there, as I hope I'll earn mine. Let them show all we know, they grow bolder now; let them show the way to grow more than older. In this place, we're both there, and we both can feign indifference, but we care. If there's grace (the grace to bear this weight) in decline (decline to fight this fate), with every silver hair we gain we will welcome our design. Let them show all we know as we grow more, now. Let them shine, both yours are mine, we grow closer now. We grow closer. And we share this face, and we share these eyes. Yours a bit more faded, mine a bit less wise. And now we share this new face, frail and full of trust, and now it's clear, she's the mirror, reflecting both of us. And we're both her. Let her show now I know, that I'm older now. Behold your son, watch him become the beholder. We're both old, we're both older now. It's not over. We're not over now, we're just older now, in this face we both share.
