Recorded and processed in a more listenable format than what I'm used to producing. More of the same, though.

When I'm 30 years old
My wife will turn to me and say
Mine is the heart you've always owned
and I am here to stay

When I'm 40 years old
My son will look at me
at a man who's wise and once was bold
that's the man he'll see

But for now, I'll take what I can get
I'll carry on to spite the fates
I am bitter and a quitter don't forget
I am everything I hate
all I can do is wait

When I'm 50 years old
I'll never have to sleep alone
and I won't dream about the grudges I should hold
and all the chances that I've blown

When I'm 60 years old
with all that money in the bank
I'll think about all the favors I am owed
and all the people I should thank

when I'm 70 years old
my hair will just be turning grey
i'll buy a house in a place that's not too cold
i'll look at the sea and say

when I'm 80 years old
I'll lie down to die here
and after my story's been told
try not to cry dear

Very well done.

Simple cords, but original lyrics, good melody matching between the vocals and the cords. Much harder to do than It looks I know. Also has a bit of a message I feel. Almost a little bit sad in the whole "stoy of life" style. Very well done all in all. My hat's off to you sir.

Love it!

Love songs like this :).

I'd love to see the lyrics though :).

I'm glad you enjoyed it.

As an expression of my gratitude, I'll even go so far as including the lyrics.
