Waitress the Musical - Take It From an Old Man Lyrics

"Take It From an Old Man" is a song from the musical "Waitress" performed by Dakin Matthews (Joe). Music and lyrics by Sara Bareilles.

Joe
TAKE IT FROM AN OLD MAN.
TIME'S JUST SAND SLIPPING PAST.
WE WANNA HOLD IT IN OUR HANDS,
BUT NO ONE EVER SEES
WHAT FALLS THROUGH THE CRACKS.
TAKE IT FROM AN OLD MAN.
MY MISTAKES HAVE MADE ME,
AND I AM WHAT I AM,
AND THOUGH I DONT BELIEVE IN SILVER LININGS,
I BELIVE THERE'S SOMETHING IN YOU.
SOMETHING GOOD IS TRYING TO BREAK THROUGH.
YOU MIGHT HAVE TO FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT.
AND WHEN YOU THINK YOU CAN'T, YOU CAN.
TAKE IT FROM AN OLD MAN.

TAKE IT FROM AN OLD MAN.
THE DAYS DON'T STRETCH ANY LONGER.
THEY'VE LEFT TRACKS UPON MY SKIN,
BUT I RECKON MADE ME STRONGER,
BUT I BELIEVE THERE'S SOMETHING IN YOU.
SOMETHING YOU SHOULD BE SEEING TOO.
LET IT ALL ON YOURSELF AT LEAST ONE TIME.
CAUSE HONEY WIN OR LOSE,
IT'S ONE HELL OF A RIDE.

Soloist
IT'S ONE HELL OF A RIDE

Joe
AND IF YOU LIKE THE STRENGTH OF YOUR OWN,
HONEY, HOLD OUT YOUR HANDS AND
TAKE IT FROM AN OLD MAN.

[Thanks to Doug, Erik Daughterman for lyrics]
