Reach Out Richard

Album: Where Does This Door Go (2013)
  • Richard, hello, I know it's 4am on New Years Day
    I never made it home last night, alright
    A minor so they dropped the charge and I'll be out today
    I know that that won't make it right
    It's never black and white but

    Richard you taught me all I need to know
    But there's some things you can't prepare for
    All I ever wanna do
    Is be as good a man as you

    So don't you be concerned
    (The kid's alright)
    I gotta live and learn
    (The kid's alright)
    I know that you will see
    (The kid's alright)
    I'll find my way eventually

    Richard, your tears fall on the wheel as you wipe them away
    I've never seen you so far gone, along
    The snow is tumbling, as you're wondering what you didn't say
    When I'm the one who got it wrong
    I tried to keep you calm cause

    Richard you showed me what was wrong and right
    But now I gotta live my own life
    I will fall along the way
    But I'll remember what you say

    So don't you be concerned
    (The kid's alright)
    I gotta live and learn
    (The kid's alright)
    I know that you will see
    (The kid's alright)
    I'll find my way eventually

    Woah woah
    Reach out, Richard
    Woah woah
    Reach out

    I know you see yourself inside my eyes
    Richard don't worry 'cause the kid's alright
    I gotta live and learn

    Richard you barely made it out of school
    But look at everything you been through
    Apples fall right from the tree
    As long as you are here for me

    I'll never be concerned
    (The kid's alright)
    I gotta live and learn
    (The kid's alright)
    I know that you will see
    (The kid's alright)
    I'll find my way eventually

    So don't you be concerned
    (The kid's alright)
    I gotta live and learn
    (The kid's alright)
    I know that you will see
    (The kid's alright)
    I'll find my way eventually
