Emerson, Lake & Palmer – From The Beginning lyrics

There might have been things I missed, but don't be unkind
It don't mean I'm blind
Perhaps there's a thing or two I think of lying in bed
I shouldn't have said

But, there it is

You see, it's all clear
You were meant to be here from the beginning

Maybe I might have changed and not been so cruel
Not been such a fool
Whatever was done is done - I just can't recall
It doesn't matter at all

You see, it's all clear
You were meant to be here from the beginning

    I have listened to this song my whole life, I have studied the lyrics and the delivery I find it as a man who gets a chance to speak his heart to his one true love and tell her his regrets and hope she realizes she was meant to be with him there, here, anywhere as long as its with him. The one that got away, always the dreamer of getting the second chance to speak from the heart. Jimmy mac.
