Hindsight ..it's a wonderful thing

(McDonald)

     

I've been taking the 'A' train to all the places I never got to,
all the people I never clung to,
I've been wishing my life away

And you know what I'm mere mortal,
a little bitter, with twist of cynical,
but, the thought never leaves me,
what could have been?

I know I could have
in fact I'm sure I should have
I would have...if
my ifs and buts didn't blind me

Hindsight...it's a wonderful thing
Hindsight...it's a wonderful thing
we all fall like a baby
When we fall, we all fall like a baby

I have cried, I should've been laughing
I don't know how but I missed something
Never saw those precious people
before they died

Feel the fear do life anyway
What the hell. Hiding yourself away
in a life of lies and dishonesty
Tell it like it is

I could have
in fact I'm sure that I should have
I would have...if
my ifs and buts didn't blind me

Hindsight...it's a wonderful thing
Hindsight...it's a wonderful thing
we all fall like a baby
When we fall we all fall like a baby
