Sometime Other Than Now

This song is by John Hiatt and appears on the album Slow Turning (1988).

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

You ask how we got here baby don't ask how
That was sometime other than now

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

You ask how we got here baby don't ask how
That was sometime other than now
