Ray LaMontagne – “Old Before Your Time”

I gave my Dad a copy of the new Ray LaMontagne album a few weeks ago, and he pointed out the beautiful lyrics in this tune. The whole song is brilliant, but this verse is my favorite:

“Ain’t it about time you realize it’s not worth keeping score? You win some, you lose some and you let it go. What’s the use of stacking on every failure another stone? Till you find you’ve spent your whole damn life building walls, lonely and old before your time.”

Ray LaMontagne
