You called me up on the phone today
Struggling with the right words to say
Time can change a thing or two
Time has changed the lives of me and you
But you know, it could have been different dad

The word brings back a sweet memory
Im sitting on a bluff on a broken tree
By my side a distinguished man
Giving me encouragement, telling me I can
And you know, youre not there

You say, "Son, lets forget the past"
I want another chance, gonna make it last
Youre begging me for a brand new start
Trying to mend a bridge thats been blown apart
But you know, you never built it dad

And so I sit here through the night
And I write myself to sleep and time keeps ticking

Time has made you finally realize
Your loneliness and your guilt inside
Youre reaching for something, you never had
Turning around now youre looking back
And you know, Im not there

You say, "Son, lets forget the past"
I want another chance, gonna make it last
Youre begging me for a brand new start
Trying to mend a bridge thats been blown apart
But you know, you never built it dad
You never built it dad, you never built it dad
You never built it dad, you never built it dad
