    Lyrics

    "Every generation
    Blames the one before
    And all of their frustrations
    Come beating on 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've told him in the living years

    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 defence

    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

    So we open up a quarrel
    Between the present and the past
    We only sacrifice the future
    It's the bitterness that lasts

    So Don't yield to the fortunes
    You sometimes see as fate
    It may have a new perspective
    On a different day
    And,if you don't give up, and don't give in
    You,may just be O.K.

    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
    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
    You can listen as well as you hear
    It's too late when we die
    To admit we don't see
    eye to eye.
