    Lyrics

    Every generation
    Blames the one before
    And all of their frustrations
    Come beating at your door

    I know that I'm a prisoner
    To all my father held so dear
    I know that I'm a hostage
    To all his hopes and fears
    I just wish I could have told him
    In the living years

    Say it loud, say it clear
    You can listen as well as you hear
    It's too late when we die
    To admit we don't see eye to eye

    Crumpled bits of paper
    Filled with imperfect thought
    Stilted conversations
    I'm afraid that's all we've got

    You say, "You just don't see it"
    He says, "It's perfect sense"
    You just can't get agreement
    In this present tense
    We all talk a different language
    Talking in defense

    Say it loud, say it clear
    You can listen as well as you hear
    It's too late when we die
    To admit we don't see eye to eye

    I wasn't there that morning
    When my father passed away
    I didn't get to tell him
    All the things I had to say

    I think I caught his spirit
    Later that same year
    I'm sure I heard his echo
    In my baby's new born tears
    And I just wish I could have told him
    In the living years

    Say it loud, say it clear
    You can listen as well as you hear
    It's too late when we die
    To admit we don't see eye to eye

    Say it loud, say it clear
