From Time To Time: 52 Songs In 52 Weeks — Song #27

This song “From Time To Time” has been kicking around for a while and largely completed since 2011. I finished recording the demo on July 1, 2014 by adding new guitar work, resurrecting the plug-in I used for the strings, and remixing this song. I’ve hesitated to add it to 52 Weeks since it has been largely finished for a while, but decided to include it since I’m finally happy with the demo.

Yeah, I never got over you, girl
That summer of waves and wine
I can still see the beach and the wind in your hair
You’ve got me tangled like a fishing line

In your cotton blouse
Near the beach house
I was playing up among your dunes
Making mermaid jokes
We shared a smoke
I used your name in all those Beatles tunes

Chorus
From time to time
You’re on my mind
From time to time
Oh, like you’re still mine

We played that old guitar
Out in the dark
Sang up to the glimmering sky
Out on the sandbar
We counted falling stars, oil rigs, and satellites

Chorus
From time to time
You’re on my mind
From time to time
Oh, like you’re still mine

Bridge
Time is a cruel illusion
Summer seems to last forever
But it’s never gonna bring you back
It’s a bummer
It’s a cold, hard fact

Yeah, I never got over you, girl
That summer of waves and wine
I can still see the beach
But you’re just out of reach…

Chorus
From time to time
You’re on my mind
From time to time
Oh, like you’re still mine

Yeah, I never got over you, girl
I never got over you
Never got over you, girl
Never got over you
Never got over you, girl
Never got over you
