THE LIVING YEARS - lyrics and chords




The Living Years
Artist: Mike & the Mechanics
Album: The Living Years (1988)

Capo 1

G F#m Am D G

G                C
Every generation blames the one before
    G                              C
And all of their frustrations come beating on your door
F
I know that I'm a prisoner to all my Father held so dear
Am
I know that I'm a hostage to all his hopes and fears
D                                               G
I just wish I could have told him in the living years

G                      C
Crumpled bits of paper filled with imperfect thought
G                         C
Stilted conversations I'm afraid that's all we've got
F
You say you just don't see it he says it's perfect sense
Am
You just can't get agreement in this present tense
D                                           G
We all talk a different language talking in defence

       G            C
Say it loud, say it clear
         Am        D           G
You can listen as well as you hear
          G            C
It's too late when we die
     Am           D          G
To admit we don't see eye to eye

      G                             C
So we open up a quarrel between the present and the past
        G                             C
We only sacrifice the future it’s the bitterness that lasts
   F                           (F)
So don’t yield to the fortunes you sometimes see as fate
   Am
It may have a new perspective on a different day
D                                                           G
And if you don't give up, and don't give in you may just be OK.
  
       G            C
Say it loud, say it clear
         Am        D           G
You can listen as well as you hear
          G            C
It's too late when we die
     Am           D          G
To admit we don't see eye to eye

          G                         C
I wasn't there that morning when my Father passed away
  G                              C
I didn't get to tell him all the things I had to say
  F                         (F)
I think I caught his spirit later that same year
    Am                    (Am)
I'm sure I heard his echo in my baby's new born tears
D                                               G
I just wish I could have told him in the living years

       G            C
Say it loud, say it clear
         Am        D           G
You can listen as well as you hear
          G            C
It's too late when we die
     Am           D          G
To admit we don't see eye to eye
