Mike and the Mechanics

Beautiful words. The first time I heard these words I really thought about my father, who I never knew the way I wanted to. I loved him but I also blamed him for so much of the pain I felt in my own life. Now that he has gone I have had time to reflect and I know that he did the best he could. He came from a generation very different from what it is today... he couldn't communicate the way I know he wanted to. But this song makes me love him and understand... that every generation is different... but we are all the same. He probably felt the same way I do, That is what links the past to the future.
