Testo now and then - ub40

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 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 No rainbow with a pot of gold No cloak to shield me from the cold No pill to stop me growing old Dreams fading into stark reality
