What was I afraid of
All the years I tried
To push you aside?
What was I made of ---
A little plastic love
And bitterness inside.

Now across miles of concrete
I still ignore your honesty.
We tried to build a brotherhood;
I apologize
I never understood.

I've been practicing my politics
And preaching my philosophies.
I've been trying to learn for decades
What most people my age already know.
I never thought you would be everything
I needed you to be to me.
I've never held myself as high as when
Your pedestal it put me in the sky.

Now I'm building bridges
To cross the distance between us.
All the things that I have missed
Still leave me here
With this one last wish.

Now across miles of concrete
I still ignore your honesty.
We tried to build a brotherhood;
I apologize
I never understood.

I've been practicing my politics
And preaching my philosophies.
I've been trying to learn for decades
What most people my age already know.
I never thought you would be everything
I needed you to be to me.
I've never held myself as high as when
Your pedestal it put me in the sky.

I thank you for that.
I thank you for that.
