Recorded simply in one take with Audacity, sparse as usual, one effect (reverb) to add some depth.
Chords are as simple. Dm C G
I wanted to ask you if you feel the same,
I wanted to see for myself as well.
It’s been a while it’s been too long,

Chorus Wonderful things can happen (X 3)
If we let them…
I got on the bus and I got on that plane,
And life since then hasn’t been the same.
I wanted to fight but I had to wait,

Now your replies are remote and the calls have stopped,
I’m fully aware of what I have lost.
I wake in the mornings and I can’t get up,
But the birds in the garden will interrupt, saying…
