about

One of the other older songs on the album. This one was written with the idea that we can't trust our own instincts. That if we chose the opposite of what we want that everything will work out. A tender song about wasting time when I could have been with you. Lots of little nods to my Mum here with "I figured this too shall pass" which used to drive me mental and now I'd give anything to hear her say it one more time.

lyrics

I'm on the train headed to somewhere
Thinking of you
That's how I spend most of my time now
So it's nothing new
And I could just go far away
Iffen I got a clue
But I figured this too shall pass
As these things tend to do

I dreamed that we made different choices
In our lives
And though they seemed wrong at the time
In the end they all worked out right

And I'm frozen here to the ground
Waiting for that faint little sound
When my heart tells me that it's true
All this time, it could have been you.

And I think about speaking my mind now
But what would that change?
I'd still be here wishing for sunshine
While you pray to stop the rain
And maybe we'll meet in the middle
If the path doesn't change
But after all of these years
Taking it just seems so strange.

I dreamed that we made different choices
In our lives
And though they seemed wrong at the time
In the end they all turned out fine.

And I'm frozen here to the ground
Waiting for that faint little sound
When my heart tells me that it's true
All this time, it could have been you.
