Alan Parsons wordt op 20 december 1947 geboren in Londen en is bekend als componist, producer en musicus. Hij produceerde onder meer Dark Side Of The Moon, het beroemde album van Pink Floyd.

In de jaren '70 richt hij zijn eigen band The Alan Parsons Project op. Na een voorzichtige start in ons land (in 1980 blijft The Turn Of A Friendly Card in de Tipparade steken) is het eind 1982 raak met Old And Wise, dat het tot nummer 19 in de Top 40 schopt. Zijn grootste hit is echter Don't Answer Me uit 1984, dat de top 7 bereikt. In 1985 volgt nog een bescheiden hit: Let's Talk About Me piekt op nummer 31.


Songtekst

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

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

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
