    The Living Years - Mike & The Mechanics

    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 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 okay

    So say it loud, say it clear
    You can listen as well as you hear
    Because it's too late, 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




    The fourth verse is always painful for me.

    Things just had to change..the way the world treated black people was beyond awful.
    Bob Dylan's song 'Hurricane' was an education for me back in '75.

    Silent Lucidity
    Queensrÿche
    Hush now, don't you cry
    Wipe away the teardrop from your eye
    You're lying safe in bed
    It was all a bad dream
    Spinning in your head
    Your mind tricked you to feel the pain
    Of someone close to you leaving the game of life
    So here it is, another chance
    Wide awake you face the day
    Your dream is over or has it just begun?
    There's a place I like to hide
    A doorway that I run through in the night
    Relax child, you were there
    But only didn't realize and you were scared
    It's a place where you will learn
    To face your fears, retrace the years
    And ride the whims of your mind
    Commanding in another world
    Suddenly you hear and see
    This magic new dimension
    I will be watching over you
    I am gonna help you see it through
    I will protect you in the night
    I am smiling next to you, in…

    David's songwriting method of writing out words- tearing up the pages and joining them up randomly, certainly worked.

    Time will Let You Know ~ Cheap Trick

    Look at you and look at me
    Now what are we supposed to be
    Were so afraid of something new
    You know its true

    You turn around and then its gone
    You can't be sure if its the same old song
    Were so afraid of everyone
    Afraid of the sun

    Please let this be love
    A love that is so true

    Its all up to me
    Its all up to you
    Time will let you know
    Whatever will be
    Whatever you do
    Time will let you know

    You see your folks and all their friends
    Ain't it funny how the story ends
    You wonder why you're hanging on
    When its gone

    Please let this be love
    A love that is so true
    Its all up to me
    Its all up to you
    Time will let you know…

    Breaking Apart
    Chris Isaak, Trisha Yearwood
    Just another day without you.
    I'll be okay without you .
    I'll be fine.
    I'll be alright.

    I'll find some one new without you.
    Somebody just like you but not you.
    I'll be alright.
    Say I'll be alright.

    But
    I'm breaking apart inside.
    I'm breaking apart inside.
    I cry in my sleep at night.
    I'm breaking apart without you.

    I hardly ever think about you.
    I said I'd call but I don't need to.
    I'll be fine.

    I've got so much to do without you.
    I said that I'd be lost without you.
    I'll be fine.
    Just give me time.

    Cause
    I'm breaking apart inside.
    I'm breaking apart inside.
    I cry in my sleep at night.
    I'm breaking apart without you.

    And I'm hoping, you're doing fine too
    I don't want to sleep without you.
    Dreams don't mean a thing without you.
    I feel so alone without you.
    Baby come back I need you.

    I'm breaking apart inside.
    I'm breaking apart inside.
    I cry in my sleep at night.
    I'm breaking apart without you.

    And I'm wondering, if you're doing fine too.
