As I look in the mirror this morning
On some dirty old restroom wall
It took a while to realize it's really me there inside
'Cause I've aged twenty years in five

I recall when I looked much younger
And it wasn't so long ago
But one night of drinking to four nights of wine
And you'll age twenty years in five

I've aged twenty years in five
I've seen the dark side of life
From a mansion on a hill to straight whiskey from a still
And you'll age twenty years in five

Before the bottle I played my music on the road
With a five piece band and with the pressures of the game
I drank up fortune and fame
And I aged twenty year in five

Oh, but I'll change this way I've been living
Or I'll be gone before my time, I'll climb back to the top
And with my friends I won't stop
Till I erase twenty years in five

Yes, I'll erase twenty years in five
