I know you're disappointed
I can see it in your eyes
This isn't what you wanted
And now you realize
I ain't no knight in shining armor
Who comes a-ridin' 'cross the lea
You're lookin' for a younger man, not me

Now, the merchants in the marketplace
They're selling fantasy
It's a trick of light and shadow
It's not reality
It's just a faded photograph
Of the man I used to be
You're lookin' for a younger man, not me

I knew the day I met you
It was never gonna last
You're an angel from the future
I'm an old devil from the past
So, trust me when I tell you
This is the way it's meant to be
You're looking for a younger man, not me

If you believe in better days ahead
For this crazy human race
That we will somehow be delivered
By goodness and by grace
And if you're lookin' for believers
In faith and hope and charity
Then, you're lookin' for a younger man, not me

You're lookin' for a younger man, not me
You're lookin' for a younger man, not me
