Still Crazy After All These Years
Paul Simon (1975)
This album was released 46 years ago today. The title track hits closer to home more with each passing year. When you come to the realization that more of your life probably lies in the rear view mirror than the windshield, you're prone to reflect a little more often.
I met my old lover on the street last nightShe seemed so glad to see me, I just smiledAnd we talked about some old times, and we drank ourselves some beersStill crazy after all these yearsOh, still crazy after all these yearsI'm not the kind of man who tends to socializeI seem to lean on old familiar waysAnd I ain't no fool for love songs that whisper in my earsStill crazy after all these yearsOh, still crazy after all these yearsFour in the morningCrapped out, yawningLonging my life awayI'll never worryWhy should I?It's all gonna fadeNow I sit by my window and I watch the carsI fear I'll do some damage one fine dayBut I would not be convicted by a jury of my peersStill crazy after all these yearsOh, still crazy after all these years
