From the recording Chasing Happy
Let’s just say mistakes were made, I got it wrong, so wrong
I didn’t know just how these games were played,
Or even that the games were on
Nobody hands you the rules, nobody tells you the score,
It left me playing the fool, until your shadow darkened my door,
I got it right this time around, head in the clouds feet on the ground
Good times or bad we see it through
If there’s one thing I know for sure, I got it right with you.
I don’t know just how it happened, I looked for you so long
And everyone I met I searched their eyes, for something I could recognize.
I knew it straight from the start, the way you held out your hand.
You reached right into my heart, you hold my love, and I understand (Chorus)
I’d given up, given up on love
I gave it out, gave it out too much,
You came along, came along at the right time
It’s been a long time and we’re doing fine. (Chorus)
