#1 Bad Timing

Hey, you swept me off my feet
I wasn't ready for it please don't turn away
Babe, we were children at out meeting
But we grew a little each and every day.

I left you out a rose by the stairs
Told you things I'd long kept to myself
I guess in love you caught me unprepared
For the devil's greener grass, bad timing bared.

She said, "I've never felt this way"
I told her, "Babe, I feel the same"
We had everything
It's such a long way down from here, bad timing babe.

Wait, life is mine i won't feel cheated,
But i do declare it always felt like fate
Babe, i was young and undefeated,
Much too young to really keep and honest name.

I didn't know my soul was on the line
Met the devil laughed into his face
I called the gypsy, told her she was right
As the devil led me on, Bad Timing rides.

She said, "Can I trust you babe"
So i told her everything
She tore a little bit
And the devil led it on, bad timing ripped

Rain, the smell of falling leaves
Like lovers trampled under feet it seems to me
Babe, I've never felt so self-defeatist
For after all what's the world without you dear?

I should have known I really had it all
It's carved into my hands deep in the lines
It's written in the stars somewhere I'm sure
But the devil led me on, now you're not mine.

She said, "You can love me babe,
Like I used to love you,
But we ain't going back"
It's a long way down from here, bad timing blamed.
