Posthumous Forgiveness lyrics

Ever since I was a small boy
No one else compared to you, no way
I always thought you will stay 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 was up as I grow

And you could store an ocean in the pools
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 sorries to the grave

Did you think I'd never know
Never was up as I grow
Did you hope I'd never doubt
Never want to work it out

You were runnin' for cover
Do like any other
Fallin' out with a lover

You didn't know that I'd suffer
What a thing to discover
There was time to recover

Move on 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
But you left us alone
Mystery, while I roam

I wanna tell you 'bout the time
Wanna tell you 'bout my life
Wanna play you all my songs
Nonetheless, sing along

Wanna tell you 'bout the time (This time)
Wanna tell you 'bout my life (I know)
All the time that I had
Mick Jagger on the phone
I thought of it when you spoke

Wanna tell you 'bout the time
Wanna tell you 'bout my life
Wanna play you all my songs
I hear your voice, sing along

I wanna say it's alright
You're just a man after all
And I know your idea now
I can say I left my own
Think you passed 'em along

Wanna tell you 'bout the time
Wanna tell you 'bout my life
Wanna play you all my songs
I hear your voice, sing along
