Then I’ll Turn And Go

Tonight  I was thumbing through some music and remembered it has been awhile since I listened to any Sister Hazel. I have always liked their sound and it seems that they are a great group of guys, still  having fun.

I remember the first time I heard them play at The Township Auditorium, Columbia, SC, opening for/with Hootie and The Blowfish for the “Monday After The Master’s” Concert, 1997.  There have been many times since.

Here is a song about “What went right, what went wrong and what could have been”

Note: the sound quality/separation of this live performance is outstanding and may I suggest listening to it with headphones or buds…

The Lyrics:

I wasn’t looking for a lifetime with you
And I never thought it would hurt just to hear
“I do” and “I do”
And I do a number on myself
And all that I thought to be
And you’ll be the one
That just left me undone
By my own, hesitation
And for the million hours that we were
Well I’ll smile and remember it all
Then I’ll turn and go
While your story’s completed mine is a long way from done.

[Chorus]
Well I’m on a champagne high
Where will I be when I stop wondering why
On a champagne high
I’d toast to the future but that’d be a lie
On a champagne high, high
Spring turned to summer
But then winter turned to mean
The distance seemed right
At the time it was best – to leave
And to leave behind
What I once thought was fine And so real – to me
And while I’m still gone
On the quest for my song
I’m at your – celebration
And for the million hours that we were
Well I’ll smile and remember it all
Then I’ll turn and go
While your story’s completed mine is a long way from done.
Your wagons been hitched to a star
Well now he’ll be your thing that’s new
Yeah what little I have you can borrow
‘Cause I’m old and I’m blue
And for the million hours that we were
Well I’ll smile and remember it all
Then I’ll turn and go
While your story’s completed mine is a long way from done.
Well I’m on a champagne high (so high)
Where will I be when I stop wondering why
On a champagne high (so high)
Toast to the future but that’d be a lie
On a champagne high
Where will I be when I stop wondering why
On a champagne high, high,
So high so high you left me undone
So high, so high you left me undone
