Alan Parsons Project - "Old and Wise" Lyrics on screen and description

From Wikipedia:
"Old and Wise" is a 1982 song by the Alan Parsons Project from the album Eye in the Sky.
The song reached #21 on the Billboard AC charts in the US in early 1983 and #74 in the United Kingdom-- the first of the band's singles to chart in that country.

The lead vocal on "Old and Wise" was performed by former Zombies vocalist Colin Blunstone. Blunstone made several appearances on Alan Parsons Project albums, but "Old and Wise" was the only single with Blunstone as lead singer to gain airplay. Blunstone later re-recorded the song for his own two-disc Best Of album, titled "Old and Wise," released in 2003.

A review of the song by Lonnie E. Holder in "The Review's the Thing" states:
"the elements are chilling and nostalgic. But as the song closes out suddenly the vocals command and the saxophone close out will make you long to play this song over again, and wish the song were much longer." I agree! If you haven't heard this song before, please listen until the end so you don't miss this terrific saxophone close out performed by Mel Collins which begins at 3:33).

Alan Parsons Project - "Old and Wise" Lyrics:

As far as my eyes can see
There are shadows approaching me
And to those I left behind
I wanted you to know
You've always shared my deepest thoughts
You follow where I go

[CHORUS]
And, oh, when I'm old and wise
Bitter words mean little to me
Autumn winds will blow right through me
And someday in the mist of time
When they asked me if I knew you
I'd smile and say you were a friend of mine
And the sadness would be lifted from my eyes
Oh, when I'm old and wise

As far as my eyes can see
There are shadows surrounding me
And to those I leave behind
I want you all to know
You've always shared my darkest hours
I'll miss you when I go

[CHORUS]
And, oh, when I'm old and wise
Heavy words that tossed and blew me
Like autumn winds will blow right through me
And someday in the mist of time
When they ask you if you knew me
Remember that you were a friend of mine
As the final curtain falls before my eyes
Oh, when I'm old and wise

As far as my eyes can see
