Wondering

Liner Notes

Another NON-autobiographical song - my story is much different!
I thought of the 3rd stanza's line first (If I had Amazon ...) and came up with the rest while I watching the (2019 series) 'Mad About You' tv show where they were fighting and went to a marriage counselor.

Lyrics

Wondering ©2022 Michael J Birch

If you said to me ‘I think it’s over’
What would I think
Would my heart sink
Would I acknowledge it’s been over a while

If I said to you, ‘that’s not what I hope’
Would you take a chance
Or even give me a glance
Would you say ‘there’s no hope anymore’?

Wondering where we are
Wondering how we got this far
Wondering who I was, who I am and who I’ll be
But you don’t see

If I had Amazon send you ruby slippers
Would you click the heels
To return to me
Would you let the past slip away

If I wrote you the world’s best love song
Would you hear the words
Feel my hurt
Would you even know the song was meant for you?

Wondering where we are
Wondering how we got this far
Wondering who I was, who I am and who I’ll be
But you don’t see

Friends show concern
Saying they knew it was over long ago
You’re never going to return
It’s time for me to accept it, I know

Wondering who I was
Wondering who I am
Wondering who I was, who I am and who I’ll be
But you don’t see

Wondering who I was
Wondering who I am
Wondering who I was, who I am and who I’ll be
But you don’t see

Wondering

Love that riff in-between verses. Fits so well! This song grabbed me right from the start. It's got great production, nice writing, and every part is well played.

Great job! 😀

I get a real '60s vibe with this one too - sounds excellent! Great production, melody, lyrics - the whole package. I really like that simple guitar melody.
