You Were Right

This song is by Badly Drawn Boy and appears on the album Have You Fed the Fish? (2002).

And you, were right to bide your time and not buy into my misery,
Well the good things are never free,
Do the colours of the rainbow look the same to everyone,

And I, was rushin' round in circles for a reason to believe,
Wipe the slime from of your sleeve,
You could follow me for weeks and I'm not goin' anywhere,

Sometimes it's hard to love someone,
Until the day that they are gone,

And I, just had a dream the other night,
I was married to the Queen,
And Madonna lived next door,
I think she took a shine to me,
And the kids were all grown up,
But I had to turn her down 'cause I was still in love with you,

I'm turnin' Madonna down,
I'm callin' it my best move,
I'll get a ticket to what you need,

I, remember doin' nothin' on the night Sinatra died,
And the night Jeff Buckley died,
And the night Kurt Cobain died,
And the night John Lennon died,
I remember I stayed up to watch the news with everyone,

And that was a lot of nights,
And that was a lot of lives,
They lost the tickets to what they need,

And I, was busy findin' answers while you just got on with real life,
Always hoped you'd be my wife,
But I never found the time,
For the question to arrive,
I just disguised it in this song,

And songs, are never quite the answer,
Just a soundtrack to a life,
That is over all too soon,
Helps to turn the days to night,
While I was wrong and you were right,

And this was a lesson learned,
I'm happy to be your fool,
And get you tickets to what you need,

I'm turnin' the lights down low,
I'm ready to make my move,
I'll get you tickets to what you need.
