Ricki Lee Jones and Ben Harper – OLD ENOUGH

Two of my all-time favorite singers….Ricki Lee Jones and Ben Harper, singing, “Old Enough”.

 

Something’s changed

It’s not that I fear but

Maybe it’s that I took care of you

too many times,

And you grew weaker for a kindness

Sometimes kindness from a friend

can break a man

I can understand

You sit there like a child-man

I never meant to make you cry

I’d turn the clock but how can I?

You’re Old Enough to know

You’re Old Enough to know

Why do you shun me

when I treat you with respect?

You’ve been my best friend,

joy and happiness

But without a tender kiss sometimes,

We may as well say goodbye…

Cuz late at night,  as the cars go by,
I lay here and watch you try

to pretend you’re not breaking inside

For someone to sing in your ear…

I can understand…

You sit there like a child and beg,

But if you want me to stay,

Baby has to cry sometime
Don’t be kind to me,
I wanna walk away…

 

You’re Old Enough to know

You’re Old Enough to know

You’re Old Enough to know
Ah, you’re Old Enough to know
