In my previous post, “Life Before Yesterday”, I shared a song of the same name, “Life Before Yesterday” (a song I wrote in my early twenties), and mentioned I had pulled out a couple of other songs from my “My Songs” folder, which I wanted to rediscover and record so I could include them in future posts.
One of those songs was called “In A Daze”, so I decided to call this post by the same name as the song, to keep things simple, and be consistent with the previous post.
I wrote this in my early 20’s too.
“Life Before Yesterday” was the second song I ever wrote and “In A Daze” was the 6th song I wrote.
At the time, I noticed that divorce was becoming more prevalent than it had been in the previous generation. So that was one of the problems of that period that was on my mind.
This song is about the moral and emotional dilemma we sometimes face when we get caught up in affairs of the heart. I have nothing more to say about this. I just wanted to share the song.
“In A Daze” (the song)
“IN A DAZE” (lyrics)
In a daze, I’m heading for the lady who I left far behind. And just to see that lady and to ask her what it is that’s on her mind.
She’ll tell you, “Oh, it’s nothing new. That lady luck has been kind to her.” And then she cries, and then she tries to fight the tears.
Suddenly confessin’ all those sleepless nights she’s had for quite some time. She’ll tell of her lover who is far away but still he’s on her mind.
And then she gets to the point at hand. She doesn’t think you’ll really understand. She doesn’t really think she holds her man.
Now, I’m on my way. She can’t believe the awaited day has finally come. And I must tell her how my heart has changed and then I know it will be done.
But knowing her the way I do now, I just can’t leave her love for you now. She loves me dearly and hopes I sincerely love her too.
