​I Thought I Saw It Coming

This song is by John Illsley and appears on the Live album Live in London (2015).

I thought I saw it coming just took me by surprise
Difficult to sidestep nowhere left to hide
Even though I saw it coming it's out of my control
And I'm feeling so much better now you're off my payroll.

Seems we're always waiting for those demons to appear
Seems we're always watching if it's wine or it's beer
Magic has been broken, he's washed away
The axes have been shifted there's a smell of slow decay.

Even though I saw it coming the memory plays tricks
I tried so hard to make it all work out
Even I thought I saw it coming, you put me in a fix
Axes made of straw and not bricks.

How long before I forget the fuss I made of you
You Were just a memory I was passing through
I thought I saw it coming never saw you walk the line
What you need is help my friend, what you need is time.

Now I gave all I could to you but it never was enough
We all know where we're heading when the going gets though
I thought I saw it coming we all went for the ride
A problem for your dignity, and a problem for your pride.

Even though I saw it coming the memory plays tricks
I tried so hard to make it all work out
I thought I saw it coming but you put me in a fix
This house is made of straw and not bricks.
