NOTES TO HINDSIGHT

 

The recording is actually not a demo, but a final mix. We didn't want to use it because we did not like a woman voice on the song. 

 

The song is about:

Taking care of time, it's precious.

 

Written by: Waterman, Alan Binau

 

Style/feeling/reference:

Slow country rock.

 

Drums:

Somehow along the lines of the mix.

 

Percussion:

same as recording.

 

Bass:

Mika, figure out. Maybe sort of like recording?

 

Guitars:

Sort of along the lines of the recording: acoustic (Alan), electric guitars (Floyd and Dave) 

 

Keyboards:

Probably organ.

 

Other instruments:

Harmonica, let's make Mikas friend play.

 

Backing vocals:

Sparse mostly harmonizing in verse and chorus. Maybe ooh aah.

 

Solo:

Sort of idea as on recording.

 

Lyrics

Hindsight

© Binau & Watermann 2010

 

Intro: Em – C – B7 - Em B7

Em

Whenever I look at the clock

C

It seems like it never stopped

B7

And I will never again,

Em                    B7

Waste my time, waste my time

 

Each second is precious we know

So spend it we the ones you love

                                      Em

Or be all by yourself, you’ll find

 

Am

If life were a clever thing

Em

Then why does it do it again

B7

But suddenly

Em     B7

It’s so kind, oh so kind

 

When I look back on my life,, I see I’ve been walking a maze

All that the trouble and fight, But I did, yes I did

Find me the key to the door, I do not want anymore

And then life can be kind, Oh so kind
