Foghat – Delayed Reaction lyrics

Dave Peverett - Riff Bros. Music - ascap

After all is said and done, it wasn't hard to be the lonely one.
Sad, but not a tear was shed, you agreed with every word I said.
I had my new life started, I couldn't be downhearted,
Days rolled slowly by, finally you stayed out of my mind.

I filed your name under "Forgotten", and then somebody pushed the panic button.
Suddenly my nerves were shakin', I realized I could have been mistaken.
Then like they say like you're supposed ta', I'm ridin' on a roller coaster.
I found love too late, too bad she's not the waiting kind.

I never felt like this before, I had to use my imagination.
Love came to my door, too late for the invitation,
Delayed reaction, Reaction, Reaction - Delayed reaction, (Reaction, Reaction).

It's a mystery to me, I don't know why our love is history,
At the time I didn't know it, and it's so easy for a fool to blow it.
You can call me a fool now, I don't feel quite so cool now.
Guess I was out of time, love was waiting somewhere down the line.

I never felt like this before, I had to use my imagination.
Love came to my door, too late for the invitation,
Delayed reaction, Reaction, Reaction - Delayed reaction, (Reaction, Reaction).

My heart is growin' fonder - I don't mean Henry and I don't mean Jane.
I got the time to wonder, if it's too late to make her mine again.

{Erik - Solo}

I never felt like this before, I had to use my imagination.
Love came to my door, too late for the invitation,
Delayed reaction, Reaction, Reaction - Delayed reaction, (Reaction, Reaction)
Delayed reaction, Reaction, Reaction - Delayed reaction, (Reaction, Reaction)

{Erik - Solo}

Yea yea-ee-hey yeah - Yea yea-ee-hey yeah - whoa now no nah ha ha.
Never, No I never, said I never - I never felt like this before, no
I never felt like this before, I never felt like this before,
I never felt like this before, I never felt like this before...
Oh whoa oh oh oh, whoa oh oh oh.
I said delayed reaction, ay, I said delayed reaction, yeah.
I said delayed reaction, I'm talkin' bout delayed reaction.
Yea yea-ee-hey yeah - Yea yea-ee-hey yea
I never felt like this before, I never felt like this before,
I never felt like this before, I never felt like this before.
D-E-L-A-Y-E-D, delayed reaction - D-E-L-A-Y-E-D, delayed reaction,
Yeah...
Oh, take me back to Brixton, man...
