Stevie Wonder - Lately
Tekst en muziek: Stevie Wonder
(1981)






Lately I have had the strangest feeling
With no vivid reasons here to find
Yet, the thought of losing you’s been hanging
Round my mind



Far more frequently you’re wearing perfume
With you say: “No special place to go”
But when I ask: “Will you be coming back soon”
You don’t know, never know



Well, I’m a man of many wishes
Hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel, my eyes won’t let me hide
Cause they always start to cry
’Cause this time could mean goodbye



Lately I’ve been staring in the mirror
Very slowly picking me apart
Trying to tell myself, I have no reason
With your heart



Just the other night, while you were sleeping
I vaguely heard you whisper someone’s name
But when I ask you of the thoughts you’re keeping
You just say: “Nothing’s changed”



Well, I’m a man of many wishes
I hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel, my eyes won’t let me hide
’Cause they always start to cry
’Cause this time could mean goodbye
Goodbye




Oh, I’m a man of many wishes
I hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel, my eyes won’t let me hide
’Cause they always start to cry
’Cause this time could mean goodbye
