Lyrics

"I've learned from personal experience how important can be to reach out before time slips away."

There's a great big sea outside my window
Pounding on the shore
Washing up these memories
I cannot ignore

There's a lonely line on the horizon
Cold and hard and strong
Like the barrier between us
That's divided us so long

As this day slips away
I could mourn the mistakes I have made
And miss this chance to explain
But I may never have this time again

There's a picture sitting on the mantle
A smile upon your face
Staring out at me like
Time could be erased

I had a point of view you disagreed with
And I'd never change my mind
Funny how it doesn't matter
After all this time

As this day slips away
I could mourn the mistakes I have made
And miss this chance to explain
But I may never have this time again

So many ways to leave home
Few ways to return
I'm looking at the bridge I thought we'd burned

But there's a telephone out in the kitchen
Waiting on the wall
My heart would love to hear you
I know that I should call, I think it's time….

Cause as this day slips away
I could mourn the mistakes I have made
But it's my chance to explain
