song title:20 / 20
date: 2001-04-01
song notes:The first song I wrote for King Harvest
lyrics: 

verse 1:
I should have danced a new step, or sung a new song
like that midnight yodeling that lasts the whole night long.
I should have heard her running and coming back to stay
to take me and change me and bury me away.
I should have seen it coming a mile away
but my eyes have been blind until today

chorus:
Don't you think it's funny how
hindsight's always 20/20 and how
answers never seem to come a'knocking at your door.
They seem to know when you ain't looking anymore.

verse 2:
Force of habit is stronger than force of will
but still I've got this...
I've got all this will power
it's coming out my ears 'til I can't hear but I've got
I've got all these habits hanging around
they've been hanging on me, and pulling me down

chorus:
Don't you think it's funny how
hindsight's always 20/20 and how
answers never seem to come a'knocking at your door.
They seem to know when you ain't looking anymore.
They seem to know when you ain't looking anymore.
