Time After Time

For my 20th post for the  Blogging A to Z Challenge, I would like to talk about a song I listened to growing up. 🙂

T is for ‘Time After Time’

‘Time After Time’ was released in 1984 by Sony BMG. It was the year my brother was born and I was in Standard 2. I still remember the first time I saw the singer Cyndi Lauper, with her red hair and riot of colours in her clothing and accessories. You could say she made an impression. LOL. But her hit became an enduring classic, which many singers later also sang and made covers of. Years later, I watched a movie called ‘Strictly Ballroom’ where the song was also featured.

The Lyrics

“Time After Time”
By Cyndi Lauper

Lying in my bed I hear the clock tick,
And think of you
Caught up in circles confusion –
Is nothing new
Flashback – warm nights –
Almost left behind
Suitcases of memories,
Time after –

Sometimes you picture me –
I’m walking too far ahead
You’re calling to me, I can’t hear
What you’ve said –
Then you say – go slow –
I fall behind –
The second hand unwinds

[Chorus:]
If you’re lost you can look – and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you – I’ll be waiting
Time after time

After my picture fades and darkness has
Turned to gray
Watching through windows – you’re wondering
If I’m OK
Secrets stolen from deep inside
The drum beats out of time –

[Chorus:]
If you’re lost…

You said go slow –
I fall behind
The second hand unwinds –

[Chorus:]
If you’re lost…
…Time after time
Time after time
Time after time
Time after time
