A Funny Thing
LYRICS...
Now it's a funny thing
I never used to dream
Now I can hardly wake
I never saw you

And all the time I knew
That you were hardly there
You mixed yourself with me
I never saw you

And you were in disguise
As someone else I knew
And all the streets were changed
I couldn't find you

Now it's a funny thing
We never used to meet
I think I really tried
I couldn't hear you

Walking in the dark
Shadows on the leaves
A many splendoured thing
I never found you

You must have waited years
Before you went away
I didn't know your face
I couldn't see you

I found you on the stairs
And you were hardly there
You turned yourself to me
I couldn't see you

I poured myself a drink
You stood there all alone
The sun was going red
You didn't see me

Now it's a funny thing
I never saw you then
But since you've been away
I think I see you

NOTES...
"Someone who is almost there. Not seeing people properly before its too late. Looking back to things which happened years ago, I can see that I often misread what was happening at the time. A tragic comedy of errors."
