About the song
This is a song about loving, indecision, and waiting, and how the whole world seems to stand still when love is no longer a certainty. In January 2005 the muse deserted me for a while, so I re-hashed something I’d done on ‘bounce-down two-track’ 20 years ago. I changed the tempo, feel, key, and re-wrote the chorus totally, complete with key change. It’s all sequenced: drums, bass, clavinet, Rhodes, cellos and violins, and accordion. There's a single tracked lead vocal, with 8 voices singing 4 parts on the chorus, and 3 parts on the other bits.
Lyrics
Verse 1
I can't go on living like this from day to day,
Never knowing which way to turn in case you turn away.
If truth be known it would hurt me less just to let you go;
But I've come too far to give in,
And anyway, what would I do then?
What could I do?

Chorus
What kind of life is mine?
What of the past? What for the future?
What kind of love is mine?
Going nowhere, waiting for you.

Verse2
Another day, another change of heart, how you cause me pain.
You're wandering 'round in circles like a child and you're lost again.
Still I play along, and don't listen to friends 'cos they may be wrong.
We've come too far to give in,
And anyway what would we do then?
What could we do?

Chorus
What kind of life is mine?
What of the past? What for the future?
What kind of love is mine?
Going nowhere, waiting for you.
I won't wait forever, you'd better make up your mind.
What kind of life is mine?

Middle 8
Seems you want the best of both worlds, well that can't be;
But you can have the best of this world with me...

Verse 3

Instrumental

If truth be known it would hurt me less just to let you go.
We've come too far to give in,
And anyway what would I do then?
What could I do?

Chorus
What kind of life is mine?
What of the past? What for the future?
What kind of love is mine?
Going nowhere, waiting for you.

What kind of life is mine?

What kind of love is mine?

Just waiting for you...

What kind of love is mine?
