Time To Think
Lyrics
Verse 1
I know it's been a while since we walked under the moon
I know how many times I've missed your smile
We've struggled and we've saved while I've worked so far away - so many miles

Verse 2
I wont forget that look when we finally realised
My going was the price we'd have to pay
We couldn't just pretend it wasn't going to end - so far away

Chorus
I'm going to take some time to think about
the love we have always known
Going to take some time
For the love I've left behind
Cos I'm so tired and so alone

I'm going take some time
Get a little peace of mind
Going to take some time before I roam again

Verse 3
The darkness of those hills is forever on my mind
The water rushing through after the rain
These thoughts when I'm alone make me dream of coming home - again

Chorus
I'm going to take some time to think about
the love we have always known
Going to take some time
For the love I've left behind
Cos I'm so tired and so alone

I'm going take some time
Get a little peace of mind
Going to take some time before I roam again

Bridge
The call of the valleys and the mountains above
The track leading up to our door
It's been calling me back
Time to strap on my pack and I'll be home, I'll be home once more


Chorus
I'm going to take some time to think about
the love we have always known
Going to take some time
For the love I've left behind
Cos I'm so tired and so alone

I'm going take some time
Get a little peace of mind
Going to take some time before I roam - may never leave again

Story Behind the Song:
The rhythm came first and then the melody. The lyrics are a dramatisation of a situation I was in at one point in an early career.
