about

Exploring which aspects of your person would be compromised in pursuing the possible outcomes of life. From the Disposition album Requiem For The Living.

lyrics

Act Our Ages by Lynn Gentry

Visions of Johanna disappear
As your song rings in my ear
Am I losing you
Or were you ever here?
There’s too much yelling in my mind
For all my thoughts to be so kind
Come just one step closer
And my mind will have no fear
There’s too much noise for me to talk
And there’s no place for me to walk
Impart to me the door that holds the key
So I can walk

And if we do it in stages
Well then we might just get applause
For all these thoughts inside our minds
But if we both
Act our ages
Well then we might not be inclined
To take our chance as we’ve got time

The words you say are making me come close
If life were easier than prose
Then I might be with you
But now the future knows
Between the city and the state
I’ve been too busy as of late
The words you say are giving me a reason
I should wait
But now she stands inside my path
These questions get harder to ask
Girls like you are never really quite
Within my grasp

But if we do it in stages
Well then we might just get applause
For all these thoughts inside our minds
But if we both
Act our ages
Well then we might not be inclined
To take our chance as we’ve got time

The signs you made won’t help define the line
And I’m running out of time
You are leaving one
But who’s left in your mind
These questions get harder to ask
With elephants inside my path
Now both of us have reasons
As to why we shouldn’t ask

But if we do it in stages
Well then we might just get applause
For all these thoughts inside our minds
But if we both
Act our ages
Well then we might not be inclined
To take our chance as we’ve got time
