Now And Then – UB40

I must admit I wonder if I had the chance
To vanquish foes with nothing more than just a glance
How perfect every single day would be

To never wait in driving rain
For the bus that never came
Not to be the one to blame
For anybody else’s misery

Now and then
I contemplate a different way around this day
With nothing more than simple words, so I can say
I’m quite content and happy being me

Walking tall with peace of mind
To leave no childhood dreams behind
Arriving home to always find
Things just as I know they ought to be

Now And Then
I must admit I wonder if I had the chance
To vanquish foes with nothing more than just a glance
How perfect every single day would be
To never wait in driving rain
For the bus that never came
Not to be the one to blame
For anybody else’s misery

Now and then
I wake up, when it hits me like a ton of bricks
I realise it’s me who has to take the licks
No angels up there looking after me


Now And Then – UB40
