Daddys Tune

Jackson Browne

dirty wind blows through the sky
And the Autumn leaves cut loose and fly
Leave me watching
And wishing I could follow       
Though among the regrets that I can't get by
There are just one or two
 Unkind things I said to you    
 Daddy what was I supposed to do?
 I don't know why it was so hard to talk to you
 I guess my anger pulled me through

No sooner had I hit the streets
When I met the fools that a young fool meets
 All in search of truth and bound for glory   
And listening to our own heart beats
We stood around the drum
Though it's fainter now
The older I become    
 Living your life day after day
 Soon all your plans and changes
Either fail or fade away
 Leaving so much still left to say

But Daddy I want to let you know somehow
The things you said are so much clearer now
And I would turn the pages back
But time will not allow
The way these days just rip along

Too fast to last, too vast, too strong

        Somewhere something went wrong
Or maybe we forgot the song
Make room for my forty-fives
Along beside your seventy-eights
Nothing survives
 But the way we live our lives
