Testo over & above - howard jones

Half past 12 on a friday night everything's wrong and it doesn't feel right

Tried to talk to someone in the bar she didn't like my face I didn't get far

When you grow up you're gonna walk big strides just like me

When you grow up you're gonna hit the big time wait and see

And I listened to his guiding voice like a man who overhears god



Over and above what I'm capable of

You couldn't take the weight of my purest innocence

Over and above what I'm capable of

You couldn't take the weight of my purest innocence

Are you over



So tall daddy used to tower above him symbol of unreachable

Time fades icons of perfection cruel result but not intention

His values are not the ones I choose he's failed in himself

In the blaze of his pride an independence expressed

Not there is no guiding voice like a man who loses god



Over and above what I'm capable of

You couldn't take the weight of my purest innocence

Over and above what I'm capable of

You couldn't take the weight of my purest innocence

Are you over



And a man can't understand his father 'til he becomes a father too

Now his own son's expectation becomes his own hearts burden new

Dad I didn't understand the pressure could it bring them back together



Over and above what I'm capable of

You couldn't take the weight of my purest innocence

Over and above what I'm capable of

You couldn't take the weight of my purest innocence
