about

'The Good Times' changes the pace again. A bad relationship flashes before our eyes as a relentlessly downbeat missive is fired across the wreckage. There’s still a hand reaching out, but with no anticipation of reconciliation. The sparse use of acoustic, deftly deployed bass and percussion keeps the mood intact throughout. This track reemphasises the theme of lessons learnt, with older and wiser perspectives reigning.

lyrics

When it feels like things are slipping away
Remember
The good times are here to stay
I hope it isn’t too late, to reach you now
The lights are fading out

It’s a fine line that you’ve been walking along
Just trying to find out where you belong
When you were coming on strong
I told you that
I’m never going…

…Back to the water’s edge
Chasing better days
When all I needed was a friendly face
Thoughts are running through my head
Since you flew away
To a place where you belong

There’s a bright light that I’ve been following round
If ever you need me
I’m on your tail
You’ve had your head in a cloud, for far too long
Tomorrow you’ll be…

…Gone with the summer breeze
Flowing through your hair
Thank you for showing me you care
You’re falling like the autumn leaves
Scattered everywhere
Till the feeling moves you on

When it feels like things are slipping away
Remember
The good times are here to stay
I hope it isn’t too late, to reach you now
The lights are fading out
