Soon I'll be older than you

It's been six years
Feels like forever
For a mother, daughter
Sister to two brothers
Could it be another?

Twelve years
Where did all the time go?
Watching all the grass grow
Forgetting all the in-jokes
Wonder if I still know

It's been ten years
Now we're getting closer
Now I'm getting older
Salt over my shoulder
Am I getting colder

Eight years
Finally the truth
And how can it be,
I'll soon be older than you?
Older than you.
With memories fading
You're never aging
Ageless and retaining

It's always appropriate when it rains today.
