Unspoken (Thank You)

(1st Verse)
Today a memory of twenty years ago came back into my life
A blast from the past ? took my breath away and cut me like a knife
I thought I put you away in a song some seven years ago but I guess I was wrong
Now I know I can?t runaway from the causes that we create
(2nd Verse)
A name and a memory of twenty years ago I now held in my hand
A torn faded paper that I managed to keep I just cant understand
Why I held it so long as my life moved on without you but I guess it was right
Unfinished business is all I can think of now and you should know
The news of your existence threw it all back in my face
With eyes wide open now I could finally see the shallowness
of how I treated you that day
(3d Verse)
And now a memory twenty years to late comes back into your life
Familiar envelope in your hand airmail blue and white
You think to throw it away but now your strong so you open it up
To see what I have to say and how I?m doin? after all these years
The news of my existence brought it all back into place
Though your dreams came crashing down somehow you managed to live your life with a simple grace
I never wanted it to be this way
You helped me past the hard times and now there?s something I have to say
I wanna thank you, thank you for bringing me this way
I never wanted it to be this way
You let me go but kept me close and forgave me when I needed it most an? there?s something I?ve had to say
I wanna thank you, thank you for leading me this way
(Outtro) ?
