Ever since I was a small boy No one else compared to you, no way I always thought heroes stayed close Whenever troubled times arose
I didn't know Ain't always how it goes
Every single word you told me I believed without a question, always To save all of us, you told us both to trust But now I know you only saved yourself
Did you think I'd never know? Never wise-up as I grow
And you could store an ocean in the holes In any of the explanations that you gave And while you still have time, you had a chance But you decided to take all of your sorrys to the grave
Did you think I'd never know? Never wise-up as I grow Did you hope I'd never doubt? Never one day work it out?
You were runnin' for cover Doin' like any other Fallin' out with a lover You didn't know that I suffered What a thing to discover There was time to recover One on one with each other Just a boy and a father What I'd give for another
Everything that I have Wouldn't need this for long Never speak of the time That you left us alone Me and Steve on our own I wanna tell you 'bout the time Wanna tell you 'bout my life Wanna play you all my songs Learn the words, sing along
(This time) wanna tell you 'bout the time (I was) I was in Abbey Road (Or the) or the time that I had (I had) Mick Jagger on the phone I thought of you when we spoke Wanna tell you 'bout the time Wanna tell you 'bout my life Wanna play you all my songs Hear your voice sing along
I wanna say it's alright You're just a man after all And I know you have demons I got some of my own Think you passed them along Wanna tell you 'bout the time Wanna tell you 'bout my life Wanna play you all my songs And hear your voice sing along
