Older
JBJ solo version of "Just Older", as performed during 1998 JBJ tour

Baby it has been a while
Do you remember me?
I'm 36, I was 17
A little wild, a little green
I've been up and down and in between
Itís been 18 years, can you believe that I'm still chasing that dream?
But I ain't looking over my shoulder

I like the bed I'm sleeping in
Just like me it's broken in
It's not old, just older
Like a faded pair of torn blue jeans
This skin I'm in is alright with me
It's not old, just older

It's good to see your face
It ainít no worse for wear
I know what you mean and I do care
Sheís doing ok, seen her last year
She got married and don't live too far from here
Sometimes I wish that I told her...

But I like the bed I'm sleeping in
Just like me it's broken in
It's not old, just older
Like a faded pair of torn blue jeans
This skin I'm in is alright with me
It's not old, just older

But I'm not old enough to sing those blues
But Iíve worn a hole in the soles of these shoes
You roll the dice and I call your bluff
But you can't win until you're not afraid to lose

Well I've got to run, you take care
If you see Coach T, tell him I've cut my hair
In all these years, can you believe that I'm still chasing dreams?
But I ainít looking over my shoulder

I like the bed I'm sleeping in
Just like me it's broken in
It's not old, just older
Like a faded pair of torn blue jeans
This skin I'm in is alright with me
It's not old, just older

When I look in the mirror I don't hate what I see
Just a few more lines staring back at me
And I'm not old, just ...
