Blue Rodeo's Bad Timing

BAD TIMING

Hey it's me, what a big surprise
Calling you up from a restraunt round the bend.
I just got in from a way up north.
I'm achin tired now, and I could use a friend.
I might be a fool, to think that you do
want to see me again.

I know it's been a while since I've talked to you.
Nothing wrong, 
just nothing ever goes as planned.
Many times I thought I'd call,
I didn't have your number in my hand.
I know it's true,
you'd never do the same thing to me.

CHORUS:
I never meant to make you cry.
And though I know I shouldn't call,
It just reminds us of the cost,
Oh of everything we've lost.
Bad timing that's all.
Maybe soon thre'll come a day,
when no more tears will fall.
If we each forgive a little bit,
and we both look back on it
as just bad timing that's all

We used to have so many plans
something always seemed to turn out wrong.
I never could catch up to you.
moving on and doing all you've done.
I don't know why,
the harder I try, 
the harder it comes.

I never meant to make you cry
and though I know i shouldn't call.
It just reminds us of the cost,
Oh of everything we've lost
It's just bad timing that's all.
And maybe soon there'll come a day,
when no more tears will fall.
If we each forgive a little bit,
and we both look back on it
as just bad timing thats all
We each forgive a little bit
and we both look back on it,
as just bad timing that's all.
