Thursday Lyric: Backwards With Time, The Avett Brothers

Folk always told me that my heart would grow 
The older the man, yeah, the stronger the stone 
Am I losing my mind? 
Am I growing backwards with time? 

Some say with age that a purpose comes clear 
I see the opposite happening here 
Are we losing the fight? 
Are we growing backwards with time? 
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/t/the_avett_brothers/backwards_with_time.html ]
I was young and love was fun 
Now it's so serious 
Now all the fun has equal pain 
There's something wrong with this 
For all I know there's more I don't 
Oh the little I have learned 
For every year of knowledge gained 
Is a negative year I've earned 

Folk always told me that my heart would grow 
The older the man, yeah, the stronger the stone 
Am I losing my mind?
