Living Years - Engelbert Humperdinck (英格柏·漢普汀克)

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

 

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

 

So we open up a quarrel

 

Between the present and the past

 

We only sacrifice the future

 

And 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

 

Say it loud say it clear

 

You can listen as well as you hear

 

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 loud

 

Say it clear

 

Say it clear

 

You can listen as well as you hear

 

It's too late

 

It's too late

 

When we die

 

When we die

To admit we don't see eye to eye

 

Say it loud

 

Say it loud

 

Say it clear

Say it clear

 

Say it loud say it clear

 

Say it loud say it clear
