Hindsight

 

Blindsided by a midlife crisis
Never saw it coming, ‘til she watched him going
Never saw the rift, though the signs were showing
Never had a clue, there was no way of knowing

Chorus:
Hindsight … It’s a wonderful thing
Hindsight is … twenty twenty
Hindsight … It’s a wonderful thing
Hindsight is … twenty twenty
Hindsight

Stan was fresh out of charm school
He knew how to play the game
He was full of ambition
A man with a mission
And Eve was much the same
Now they married … as a matter of course
The perfect couple … right up to their divorce

Chorus:
Hindsight … It’s a wonderful thing
Hindsight is … twenty twenty
Hindsight … It’s a wonderful thing
Hindsight is … twenty twenty
Hind sight … All the tears she cried
In the rear view mirror … It’s all magnified
Hindsight … It’s a wonderful thing
Hindsight

Well Eve traded in her dreams
To build a happy home
He was a man going places
Meeting lots of new faces
Stans’ eyes began to roam
She could forgive … just a “silly mistake”
If only she could split … the charmer from the snake

Chorus:
Hindsight … It’s a wonderful thing
Hindsight is … twenty twenty
Hindsight … It’s a wonderful thing
Hindsight is … twenty twenty
Hind sight … All the tears she cried
In the rear view mirror … It’s all magnified
Hindsight … It’s a wonderful thing
Hindsight

Chorus:
Hindsight … It’s a wonderful thing
Hindsight is … twenty twenty
Hindsight … It’s a wonderful thing
Hindsight is … twenty twenty
Hind sight … All the tears she cried
In the rear view mirror … It’s all magnified
Hindsight … It’s a wonderful thing
Hindsight is … twenty twenty
Hindsight … It’s a wonderful thing
Hindsight is … twenty twenty
Hindsight … It’s a wonderful thing
Hindsight is … twenty twenty
Hindsight
