Posthumous Forgiveness

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 had time, you had a chance
But you decided to take all your sorry's 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
Fallen out with a lover
You didn't know that I suffered
What a thing to discover

If 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
I wouldn't need us for long
I'd never speak of the time
That you left us alone
Me and Steve, on our own

I wanna tell you about the time
Wanna tell you about my life
Wanna play you all my songs
Learn the words, sing along

Wanna tell you about the time
I was in Abbey Road
Or the time that I had
Mick Jagger on the phone
I thought of you when he spoke

Wanna tell you about that time
Wanna tell you about my life
Wanna play you all my songs
And hear your voice sing along

I wanna say it's alright
You're just a man after all
And I know you had demons
I got some of my own
I think you passed them along

I wanna tell you about the time
Wanna tell you about my life
Wanna play you all my songs
And hear your voice sing along Writer(s): Kevin Parker
