Artist's Description


I was listening to some of my music while organizing my CD collection and this song, which have a favorite ever since I heard it the first time. Playing around with some photo’s in Photoshop and came up with this image for this song, Living Years by: Mike and the Mechanics

Every generation
Blames the one before
And all of their frustrations
Come beating on your door

I know that I’m a prisoner
To all my Father held so dear
I know that I’m a hostage
To all his hopes and fears
I just wish I could have
Told him in the living years

Crumpled bits of paper
Filled with imperfect thought
Stilted conversations
I’m afraid that’s all we’ve got

You say you just don’t see it
He says it’s perfect sense
You just can’t get agreement
In this present tense
We all talk a different language
Talking in defence

  • Say it loud,
    Say it clear
    You can listen as well as you hear
    It’s too late when we die
    To admit we don’t see eye to eye

So we open up a quarrel
Between the present and the past
We only sacrifice the future
It’s the bitterness that lasts

So don’t yield to the fortunes
You sometimes see as fate
It may have a new perspective
On a different day
And if you don’t give up,
Snd don’t give in
You may just be O.K.

I wasn’t there that morning
When my father passed away
I didn’t get to tell him
All the things I had to say

Three different images used this one. All taken in Port Hardy, BC Canada on beautiful Vancouver Island.
Hope you enjoy and thank you for viewing!!
