You called me up
On the phone today
Struggling with
The right words to say

Time can change
A thing or two
Time has changed the lives
Of me and you, but you know...

It could have been different, Dad

The word brings back
A sweet memory
I'm sitting on a bluff
On a broken tree

By my side
A distinguished man
Giving me encouragement
Telling me I can
And you know...
You're not there

You say
Son, let's forget the past
I want another chance
Gonna make it last

You're begging me
For a brand new start
Trying to mend a bridge
That's been blown apart,
But you know...

You never built it, Dad

And so I sit here through the night
And I write myself to sleep
And time keeps ticking...

(Solo)

Time has made you
Finally realize
Your loneliness
And your guilt inside

You're reaching for something
You never had
Turning around
Now you're looking back
And you know...

I'm not there

You say
Son, let's forget the past
I want another chance
Gonna make it last

You're begging me
For a brand new start
Trying to mend a bridge
That's been blown apart,
But you know...

You never built it, Dad
You never built it, Dad
You never built it, Dad
You never built it, Dad
You never built it, Dad...
