Glee - The Living Years Lyrics


Glee - The Living Years

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 have told him in the living years

Oh 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

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

So we open up a quarrel (open up a quarrel)
Between the present and the past
(the present and the past)
We only sacrifice the future (ooh)
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 ok

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

(oooh)
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 say it say it loud),
Chorus
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
