about

Sombre in theme, As Old As I Am explores aging and the dying of memory. Starting as a musical idea composed over ten years ago, Janine returned to the idea to develop the song. With the aid of The DoneFors' the song grew to be what it is now. With Paul's thoughtful vocal delivery, and featured addition of guest Rob Sills on keys, this song has an atmospheric dream-like quality.

lyrics

In the whitest of rooms at the end of a line
In the arm of a husband is a beautiful wife
He says “You remind me of someone I know”

The lists on the walls have faded with light
And they’ll all blow away by the end of tonight
He says “I am not steady - as old as I am”

* We all lose what we love
We all lose what we love

All the days are the days to keep in your mind
But a mind dims to dark with the passing of time
He says “I can’t remember - as old as I am”

* Chorus

There is no sound here
Save for breath slowing
I am so lucky - as old as I am
