about

A song about the ferocity and courage of the human spirit.

Written about Mikey's experience working in a nursing home.

lyrics

I met an old woman who couldn't talk, but she could sing
I met an old man who couldn't walk, but he could dance

So lovely how the oblivescence can take our minds
And the senescence can take our bodies
But nothing ever can take our soul

This old woman who couldn't talk
Could sing like the first dewdrops of the springtime
This old man who couldn't even walk
Could dance like the sunset trickling through the trees in the summer

And it's so lovely how the oblivescence can take our minds
And the senescence can take our bodies
But nothing ever can take our soul

In the autumn of our lives
In the autumn of our times
In the autumn of our lives
Leaves from the trees in the autumn of our
