In A Different World (Brief Encounter)
PLAY
A song about the unattainable woman. While it's all my own work, on play-back I can hear touches of Dave Crosby and Gillian Welch (not bad company to be in, mind you!).

Story behind the song
The song is a kind of portmanteau of various experiences of falling for someone who was already involved with someone else. The theme was partly suggested by the film "Brief Encounter" and the play "Cyrano de Bergerac".
Lyrics
In a different world In a different time Maybe I once was yours And you were mine But long before we met I say this with regret We boarded trains that went Down different lines To a different world To a different world And a different time A little tenderness A little time Might heal your wounds, baby, As they’ll heal mine Someone to turn to when The night descends And your resistance ends And leaves you crying For a different world For a different world And a different time And I know there's no tomorrow For neither you nor I are free Chains of love and obligation Tie us to our destiny But in a different world And a different time You were once mine But long before we met I say this with regret We boarded trains that went Down different lines To a different world To a different world And a different time
