Too Old to Die Young
I stumbled across this video on Youtube by a group of ladies from Austin, TX. You gotta love Austin music.

Those harmonies are angelic, aren't they? It must be those West Texas roots in me that make the music resonate deep inside my soul. But, these lyrics are especially poignant and make me tear up when I listen to the song.

If life is like a candle bright death must be the wind
You can close your window tight and it still comes blowing in
So I will climb the highest hill and watch the rising sun
And I pray that I don’t feel the chill till I’m too old to die young

Let me watch my children grow to see what they become
Oh Lord don’t let that cold wind blow till I’m too old to die young

Now I have had some dear sweet friends I thought would never die
Now the only thing that’s left of them is the teardrops in my eyes
If I could have one wish today and know it would be done
Well I would say everyone could stay till they’re too old to die young

And the people said, Amen.
