20 some years is a long walk
even if it's not in a straight line
you see a lot of things in the distance
y'know what they say about great minds
you and I think about the same things
dream the same dreams play the same games
we started out in the same place,
believe it or not we've got the same names.
Everything happens for a good cause
whether it be victory or loss
and the road may turn into a runway
but you don't know what to do someday
trust me I've seen it all before
I've climbed to the tops of the tallest trees
to get away from the deep water
to find a touch of the smallest breeze
go find the girl with a low voice
who holds the world in her bare hands
you'll fall in love, you'll have no choice
once you are given a fair chance.
For the first time you will sleep well
take a deep breath, see the sun shine
hold on to her for dear life
and then watch the whole world unwind.
Ask her to show you some magic
and I guarantee that she'll say yes
tell her that "you've seen forever
and we will be together not a day less."
Just know until that time comes
and after you've crossed that first mile
that the hardest part is behind you
and all of the pain only worth while.

From storm clouds come angels
let pain give you pleasure
from dirt grows the flower
when faith can't be measured.

    General CommentNo i think it can be taken literally. The name of the song is Phil so maybe he's talking about his brother.... Phil Terfry?..

    Its a generally comforting song isn't it.
    and pretty sure it goes...

    "20 something years- that's a long walk
    even if it's night, [and] in a straight line."

    ...as if, because it was night, the length of the walk wasn't as obvious. Either way, it seems as though whoever he's trying to comfort has had a rough time.
