Lyrics

VERSE
Sometimes circumstances get in the way
As surely as night follows day
That’s the way it was when we were twenty-three
You seemed aloof; you did not want me

FIRST PRE-CHORUS
But now you tell me after all these years…

CHORUS
I could’ve had you then
Had I tried a little harder, been a little smarter
We were too circumspect; we did not quite connect
I didn’t know when I’d pass your way again
Now we’re quite a bit older, quite a bit wiser
No need to be such serious analyzers
So here I am and here you are
So near, yet so far; this time…, I’m trying harder

VERSE
You went your way and I went mine
We’ve been married how many times?
Well, who cares; that’s all in the past
We’ve got love; let’s make it last

SECOND PRE-CHORUS
After all these years, I still can’t believe…

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
If I could turn back the clock, I would
How I wish I had not misunderstood

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
This time, girl, I’m trying harder
