Verse 1:
      Gb
I was walking down 57th Street towards Park
         Db
With the same old song in my same old heart
       Ebm                           B
Making plans I'm gonna do when I get older
         Gb
Passed a gray-haired man and I found his eyes
             Db
It's like he knew my thoughts and he read my mind
       Ebm                              B
Saying life is gonna find you when it's supposed to

Pre-Chorus:
        Ebm
Felt my feet stop short and I turned my head
         Gb                      Ab            B
Tried to lean into every word he said, then he said

Chorus:
             Gb           B           Gb
When you are younger, you wish you're older
     B           Gb                  Db
Then when you're older, you wish for time to turn around
      Bb7      Ebm         Gb   B
Don't let your wonder turn into closure
             Gb                  Db
When you get older, when you get older

Post-Chorus:
Gb  B   Ebm Db
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Gb  B   Ebm Db
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Verse 2:
       Gb
Have I killed my thoughts right before their prime?
       Db
Have I bit my tongue one too many times
       Ebm                          B
Have I said it all the way I really meant to?
     Gb
If I wait 'til my tomorrow comes
       Db                       Ebm
Is the waiting all I've ever done?
           B
And will I get to,

Pre-Chorus:
       Ebm
get to know myself in the place I am
       Gb                        Ab           B
Get to fall in love with another man and understand

Chorus:
             Gb           B           Gb
When you are younger, you wish you're older
     B           Gb                  Db
Then when you're older, you wish for time to turn around
      Bb7      Ebm         Gb   B
Don't let your wonder turn into closure
             Gb                  Db
When you get older, when you get older

Post-Chorus:
Gb  B   Ebm Db
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Gb  B   Ebm Db
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Chorus:
             Gb                       B
When you are younger, you wish you're older
             Ebm                 Db
When you get older, you wish for time to turn around
               Gb               B
Don't let your wonder turn into closure
             Ebm                 Db
When you get older, when you get older

Outro:
Gb  B   Ebm Db  Gb
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
