Time After Time


Look out my window, there’s brother fox
What’s he doing in my garden?
Some things never change and some get lost
Some hearts soften and some harden

Some thoughts are hard to keep at bay
They keep coming back day after day
Worm their way into my mind
Drag the sadness back, time after time

Look out! the prophets cry, the world is ending
I recall when I thought that they were wrong
But now take a look at how things are trending
Looks more like a question of how long

Some thoughts are hard to keep at bay
They keep coming back day after day
Worm their way into my mind
Drag the sadness back, time after time

Look for the sun to break on through the clouds
Look out for those little acts of kindness
Hope springs eternal, maybe we can turn aside
That flood of avarice and blindness

Some thoughts are hard to keep at bay
They keep coming back day after day
Worm their way into my mind
Drag the sadness back, time after time

Look to my lover to bring me solace
To offer me a place to hide
She lays a trail of crumbs for me to follow
Find the way back to my better side

Some thoughts are hard to keep at bay
They keep coming back day after day
Worm their way into my mind
Drag the sadness back, time after time
Time after time after time

Hi Peter. This one is outside the box lyric wise
and that's a good thing.

"Look for the sun to break on through the clouds
Look out for those little acts of kindness"

Very well crafted.
Congrats to all involved.

Hello Peter,

Very nice lyrics, but that is one of your strong things!
A very nice song, with a good band performance. I like that solo till the end.
A bit of hard rock entwined in a 'romantic' song with acoustic guitars.
The chorusses were strong, and with a nice bg vocal.
Yep, that makes a good song fantastic!

Hans

Loved the lyrics!

Super vocal, mix, and guitar tone and chops.

Loved it.

Nice collaboration. Well written song. Vocals are easy going yet the message is so heavy - nice contrast. Great electric guitar playing as always. Good one.

Excellent lyrics, Leon!

Nice production, love the bit at 3:18 where the band mostly drops out and the vocal harmony is added.

Nice solo and outro solo, Peter. Just the right amount of fuzz for me wink

Hi Peter,
An easy song to listen to and reflect. The lyrics you wrote invoke such imagery. Sadness and then hope...
Your vocals also set the mood and were well done. And finally, the solo at the end sounded great. Thanks for posting, I enjoyed the listen.

Peter & Leon.
Soft and sad tune. Good set of lyrics. This is pretty clever:
"She lays a trail of crumbs for me to follow
Find the way back to my better side"

Super guitar parts. Clear mix, listens easy. Fun photo smile Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Lovely stuff,
Nice guitar tone too.

Good vocal delivery on this. I dig the harmony too.

Guitar, as I expect would be, is superbly performed and crafted. Especially the ending part!

Strong chorus.
