Newsboys
The Living Years (feat. Kevin Max)

Oh oh oh...

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

(Say it loud) say it loud
(Say it clear) come on and say it clear
(You can listen as well as you hear)

Crumpled bits of paper
Filled with imperfect thoughts
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) oh, say it clear
(You can listen) as well as you hear
So say it, just say it
(It's too late) oh, it's too late (when we die) ooh, when we die
(To admit) we don't see eye to eye

Oh oh oh...

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

Oh oh oh...

Say it...
