ALL GROW OLD TOGETHER 

We all listened when grandma told stories

We all laughed when grandpa told jokes

We all held on when Lily was diagnosed with cancer 

and we never lost hope/let go


We all ignited when mother and father kissed 

Under the decorated arch of petunias

We all cried as the balloons scattered to the stars

that shone over Robin’s funeral


We knew we’d all grow old together

We’ll all grow old as one

We’ll all grow old in the depths of the darkness

and the golden sparks of the sun


We all cheered when Kate got pregnant

it's true that the youth bring joy

we all mourned at the death of our cousin

was too soon for a high school boy

we were scared when my sister got angry

we all heard the sirens and the slam of the door

we all heard father we he finally cracked 

like the crockery flung to the floor

we don’t speak of that no more


'Cause we’ll all grow old together

we’ll all grow old as one

we’ll all grow old in the depths of the darkness

and the golden sparks of the sun


We all sung on Christmas morning

to the gifts under the malting tree

we all hung on the words of uncle Pete

who told tales to the kids on his knee

we all knew we had something worth living for

and we all had someplace we can

something worth giving is worth giving to someone in need 

even if it's just your hand


'Cause we’ll all grow old together

we’ll all grow old as one

we’ll all grow old in the depths of the darkness

and the golden sparks of the sun


We’ll all grow old together

we’ll all grow old as one

we’ll all grow old in the depths of the darkness

and the golden sparks of the sun
