Perhaps I’ll never know

Verse
I’ve spent my whole life waiting;
Anticipating love.
I’ve tried being patient
But enough’s enough.
Chorus
There’s no red light, no green light
To tell me stop or go.
If there’s a right time, a wrong time
Perhaps I’ll never know.
Verse
Can’t wait on fate or fortune
To turn my life around.
Time I make my own break.
Time I find love now.
Chorus
There’s no red light, no green light
To tell me stop or go.
If there’s a right time, a wrong time
Perhaps I’ll never know.
Verse
I have to seize the moment.
Who knows I might succeed.
Might end up broken hearted.
Might find another me.
Bridge
A hand to hold my hand
Lips to kiss my lips.
Might catch a falling star.
Fill a foolish wish.
Chorus
There’s no red light, no green light
To tell me stop or go.
If there’s a right time, a wrong time
Perhaps I’ll never know.

BEAUTIFUL!!! Lovely bridge.

good lyricist, mediocre songwriter, lousy musician;
likes rock, writes for anybody anyway

Nice lyric, as usual, Carroll! How about you bring the lady into it, move it from the abstract notion of wanting love to the more concrete idea of wanting love and having someone in mind? Just an idea.

I thought about it but decided to leave it open to a female or male vocalists.

Hey Carroll,
I love these lines. Very inspiring. If you don’t mind I’d like to give them a try.

All the best
Robert

Drop the 2nd verse and try this as a pre chorus
Always been uncertain
Waited far too long.
Spent my time debating
If I should go on.
