Mary Hopkin’s Logic Song

Time by Mary Hopkin

I wrote the lyrics to this original song, and sang lead vocals on it as well.

Special thanks to Anna King for playing guitar and singing background vocals, and to Jonathan Strong for playing piano and drums on this song for me.

Time

Verse 1

I was the best friend I thought you never saw

In that way, until you did

Turns out you did

They say timing is everything

Well our timing’s not the best

 

Pre-chorus

I had a boyfriend, 

And you had a girlfriend

But that didn’t stop us…

And well I think you know the rest

 

Chorus

There was that night

In your car

And those three days

In your room

There’s no right time to say it 

But I’m in love with you

And I will wait

But not quietly

But I can wait now that you know

I’ll wait until there’s time for us

One more thing before you go-

I hope you know you are my everything

And that won’t change with time

 

Verse 2

We’ve talked just once since we moved away

One twelve minute talk

While you were on your way to class

That ended with an awkward, shaky, unsteady, unsettling, ‘I love you’

That you met with a bashful and unsteady laugh

And a quick

‘love you too’ click

 

Chorus

There was that night

In your car

And those three days

In your room

There’s no right time to say it 

But I’m in love with you

And I will wait

But not quietly

But I can wait now that you know

I’ll wait until there’s time for us

One more thing before you go-

I hope you know you are my everything

And that won’t change with time

 

Bridge

You were my best friend, my everything, my entire universe

How does it feel to be someone’s everything

Do you even know you are my everything?

You know I feel so safe with you

Tell  me why I feel so safe with you

We were so close, but now we’re far too far away

 

Chorus

There was that night

In your car

And those three days

In your room

There’s no right time to say it 

But I’m in love with you

And I will wait

But not quietly

But I can wait now that you know

I’ll wait until there’s time for us

One more thing before you go-

I hope you know you are my everything

And that won’t change with time
