Waylon Jennings: Amanda Meaning
Song Released: 1979
But it's an awful awakening in a country boy's life,
To look in the mirror in total surprise.
At the hair on my shoulders and the age in my eyes.
Amanda, light of my life.
Fate should have...

The song was written by Bob McDill as an apology to his wife. I think he was saying he was living the life of a musician, not worrying about anything but the music and not realizing time is going by. He looks in the mirror and realizes he's gotten older and that he has left Amanda on the backburner and she deserved better than that.
