Price, Ray - Forty And Fading Lyrics




He looked in the mirror while he was shaving this morning
The lines in his face and the age in his eyes gave a warning
As he stands face to face with the man that everyone sees
He whispers it's hell to be forty and fading
Feeling like you're 23

When the young ladies look they still get that gleam in their eye
He's got money to burn but there's one thing he don't have to buy
Last night he learned you're as you let yourself be
He may look like he's forty and fading
She made him feel 23

They say it's hell to be forty and fading
From now on it's all downhill
But he don't believe it cause life's what's you live it
And he's just beginning to live

As long as there's ladies who need a good loving
That's where he's gonna be
He may look like he's forty and fading
But inside he's still 23

He thinks it's a shame that God wasted years on the young
Because your life's half over before you learn how it's done
Now he's living the life that young man's eyes never see
He may look like forty and fading
But inside he's still 23

He may look like forty and fading
But inside he's still 23

    "Forty and Fading" came out the year I turned 40.  I loved Ray then, I love him now.  No one will ever take his place!
