The Living Years

အခ်ိန္လြန္မွ ေနာင္တ ရတယ္ဆိုတာမ်ိဳး မျဖစ္ရေအာင္..

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 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 OK

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

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

sin dan lar.. >> နားေထာင္သြားတယ္.. ၾကိဳက္တယ္ေျပာမသြားေတာ့ မၾကိဳက္ဘူးလို ့ ယူဆလိုက္ရမယ္ ထင္တယ္။.
