Time grows older my beholder
Your eyes are turning into black coal
Your lips are leaking words I never thought I've heard
Something I would never call my own

There's colour shedding from your skin
From the shadow of your face I know another end begins
you're tying to start a life many miles away from mine
And I'll try my best to stay kind

You're my blood and bones and there's nothing I can do
You pick me up you knock me down but i still look up to you
The colour of your skin has changed
Your eyes will never look the same
Blood grows thicker every day
This doesn't mean I'm happy with the life you choose
One of these days shes leaving here and never gonna see you
You'd have wished you'd listened in
Saw the life that she's living
Held her hand like you used to do

Twenty years have come and grown afar
I'm a bolder stronger on e shoulder from you
I'm better off without those words you just throw around
I never though I'd want silence from you
You're blind to see all that you have done
You were the only one i wanted my life to become
There's nothing left to fight for when there's nothing left to dream
We can't keep on waiting for you to come back to me

You're my blood and bones and there's nothing I can do
You pick me up you knock me down but i still look up to you
The colour of your skin has changed
Your eyes will never look the same
Blood grows thicker every day
This doesn't mean I'm happy with the life you choose
One of these days shes leaving here and never gonna see you
You'd have wished you'd listened in
Saw the life that she's living
Held her hand like you used to do

Oh to that child heart
you never knew
