Older Lyrics – Ben Platt

[Verse 1]
I was walking down 57th Street towards Park
With the same old song in my same old heart
Making plans I’m gonna do when I get older
Passed a gray-haired man and I found his eyes
It’s like he knew my thoughts and he read my mind
Saying life is gonna find you when it’s supposed to
Felt my feet stop short and I turned my head
Tried to lean into every word he said, then he said

[Chorus]
When you are younger, you’ll wish you’re older
Then when you’re older, you’ll wish for time to turn around
Don’t let your wonder turn into closure
When you get older, when you get older

[Post-Chorus]
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

[Verse 2]
Have I killed my thoughts right before their prime?
Have I bit my tongue one too many times
Have I said it all the way I really meant to?

If I wait ’til my tomorrow comes
Is the waiting all I’ve ever done?
And will I get to, get to know myself in the place I am
Get to fall in love with another man and understand


[Chorus]
When you are younger, you’ll wish you’re older
Then when you’re older, you’ll wish for time to turn around
Don’t let your wonder turn into closure
When you get older, when you get older

[Post-Chorus]
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

[Chorus]
When you are younger, you’ll wish you’re older
When you get older, you’ll wish for time to turn around
Don’t let your wonder turn into closure
When you get older, when you get older

[Outro]
Oh, oh, oh, oh

worldwide fell head over heels for Ben Platt during his Tony® Award-winning turn in the title role of Dear Evan Hansen and on-screen in films such as the Pitch Perfect franchise. As the vocalist, actor, and performer sang life into a host of nuanced and fascinating characters, audiences embraced his voice wholeheartedly. By dusting off the piano, picking up a pen, and singing his own truth straight from the heart, he shared another side of himself as a solo artist. Ben achieved superstar status as Evan Hansen in Dear Evan Hansen, originating the lead role. The New York Times lauded him as a “breakout star,” and he went on to receive the 2017 Tony® Award for “Best Actor in a Musical.” Other honors included “Best Musical Theater Album” at the 2018 GRAMMY® Awards for the Original Broadway Cast Recording of Dear Evan Hansen, “Outstanding Musical Performance in a Daytime Program” at the Daytime EMMY® Awards for a cast performance of “You Will Be Found” on The Today Show, and more. Not to mention, he joined forces with Hamilton mastermind Lin-Manuel Miranda to craft a mash-up of “The Story of Tonight” and “You Will Be Found,” benefiting the “March for Our Lives” anti-gun violence movement. Signed to Atlantic Records by Chairman and C.E.O. Craig Kallman and President of A&R Pete Ganbarg, he explored his formative influences, ranging from timeless singer-songwriters such as Joni Mitchell and Carole King to legendary crooners like Donny Hathaway, Ray Charles, and Stevie Wonder. As a result, the music delivers confessional lyricism by way of soulful intimacy as part of one cohesive narrative on his 2019 full-length debut, Sing To Me Instead. The 12-track album, which was primarily produced by Jenn Decilveo, chronicles the highs and lows of a transformative relationship. Showcasing his story, Ben penned several songs solo and co-wrote the remainder of material alongside the likes of Ben Abraham, Eg White, Nate Cyphert, Michael Pollack, and more.
