lyrics

hey
remember the day
the day i promised
someone something
that to this day
seven years late
remains untried
and hey
all of this time
this time i wasted
doing nothing
is gonna bite me
in the ass
and set me right
cuz what did i do
with my time
what did i do
what did i do do do
i'll tell you this
my neglect now nurtures
a growth of selfishness
in my life
so this man
years ago said
as i lay buried
in his debt
talks of his son
and tells me to
write a song for
that boy
that boy's got talent
ain't that right
he's got that city
locked up tight
that boy
will be alright
and i said hey
there's more to be told
more that should not be
conveyed lightly
for this boy's father
won't be there
he'll never know
that hey
the promise i made
with him would one day
be fulfilled but
i will regret
not having been
more punctual
cuz what did i do
with my time
what did i do
what did i do do do
it was a test
and i failed it now
i'm rotting with regret
'til i come through
cuz this man
years ago said
as i lay drowning
in his debt
talks of his son
and tells me to
write a song for
that boy
this is for you
alex
know that this is what
your father
asked me to do
ooh
this is for you
sorry for catching you
off guard
but please
i owe it to you
yaa
when i knew you
alex
you were just a boy
but boy
the things you could do
ooh
when i knew you
on those
boards and bikes
you rode better
than all the young dudes
ya
i owe this one to you
ya
