sometime other than now


Maybe your mama didn't treat you right,

Maybe her intentions weren't even very good

Maybe my daddy lay awake at night

Imagining himself in some other neighborhood


Left to our own devices

Like maybe they were too

Out on the open road

And wonderin' what to do



You ask how we got here baby don't ask how

That was sometime other than now


It takes what it takes, that's what they told us girl

We've done a lot of dumb things, we'll probably do some more

On two different paths, runnin' 'round in different worlds

We finally found each other, who we were lookin' for

Now I see my own reflection

When I give my love to you

And it's shot back like an arrow

So straight and true





I'm not leavin' baby

The future's comin' right here and now

And maybe tomorrow we can't take it

I'm not grievin' baby anymore

The past is gone

And we can't fake it, so baby let's make it

With this love of ours somehow


A little bit of fear, you know it goes a long way

It's followed us around since we were little kids

With just a little faith, well maybe baby someday

We will find the strength, the strength to forgive


It don't come all of a sudden

But when it comes at last

You could blink your eyes and miss it

It happens so fast
