John Farnham – Seemed Like A Good Idea lyrics

Ross wilson, john farnham, and ross fraser

I've been a fool, I have been cruel
You put your faith in me
Ask myself why, no alibi
Now that you're facing me
Did things my way, I've had my say
Sometimes I crossed that line
But it seemed like a good idea
Seemed like a good idea at the time

I know I was wrong, I'm holding on
Learning is hard to do
It's not too late, if you will wait
I'll make it up to you
If you refuse, then I will lose
I let our life unwind
But it seemed like a good idea
Seemed like a good idea at the time

Seemed like the ring thing
'til I watched you go
Seemed like the right thing
But I lost control
Out in the darkness I saw a light
And now I know

A bitter taste has taken the place
Of kisses that were so sweet
Open my eyes, I realise
My lesson is complete
If it ain't broke, don't try to fix it
Sometimes I crossed that line

But it seemed like a good idea
Seemed like a good idea at the time
It seemed like a good idea
Seemed like a good idea at the time

Did things my way, I've had my say
Sometimes I crossed the line
But it seemed like a good idea
Seemed like a good idea at the time

Seemed like a good idea
Seemed like a good idea at the time
