Thread Name: Songs about getting really old?
Subject: RE: Songs about getting really old?
I saw Nathalie Nahai perform her song Winter to an audience of greyhairs all about 30 years older than her; she was no doubt inspired by previous sightings of the horrors awaiting her:

You say we're still young
Our lives have just begun
Beauty will leave me and time wear us down
I don't want to grow old
I don't want to die
