Recorded May/June 2014, at Crossing Studios.

lyrics

I’ve been looking back on yesterday
When we shared that space and time
You hung on every word we had to say
And memorised each precious line

You always cared about the right and wrong
And spoke your mind about the truth
I had no doubt we’d always get along
I never dreamt what I could lose

When the window was always open
And the day was ours to take
I couldn’t help but be distracted
By another plan I’d made
We were searching for a new tomorrow
I was heading for another day
It’s a question of bad timing
And how life got in the way

Maybe if we’d started here and now
This would be a better time
We’d see it through until the very end
And find a way to make it shine

When the window was always open
And the day was ours to take
I couldn’t help but be distracted
By another plan I’d made
We were searching for a new tomorrow
I was dreaming of another day
It’s a question of bad timing
And how life got in the way

I still think about what might have been
Now I’m stood on the outside looking in

When the window was always open
And the day was ours to take
I couldn’t help but be distracted
By another plan I’d made
We were searching for a new tomorrow
I was dreaming of another day
It’s a question of bad timing
And how life got in the way
It’s a question of bad timing
And how life got in the way
