lyrics & notes

Way back then in ’83 I sat up there upon your knee and hung on every single thing you said. It was a loving mix of common sense and poison and I took all inside, back then I hadn’t really read anything.

But Take a look at you now.
Take a look at me now.
Take a look at us now.

"Son it was such a different time", that’s what I say to hide the shame
But you know that even now I just can’t bring myself to give you all the blame.
We were just like all the rest, we feared the worst and tried our best.
It really isn’t my place to complain
But even so, here I go

Take a look at you now.
Take a look at me now.
Take a look at us now.

So let me try and shape this message
Let’s try and tell it straight and pay my tribute to the man.
But it’s so hard to shape this, impossible to fake this.
Unaccustomed as I am.
