Lyrics

I wrote this song two hours before we met
I didn't know your name or what you looked like yet
Oh, I could have stayed at home and gone to bed
I could have gone to see a film instead
You might have changed your mind and seen your friend
Life could have been very different but then
something changed

Do you believe that there's someone up above?
And does he have a timetable directing acts of love?
Why did I write this song on that one day?
Why did you touch my hand and softly say
"Stop asking questions that don't matter anyway
Just give us a kiss to celebrate here today"
Something changed

And when we woke up that morning we had no way of knowing
That in a matter of hours we'd change the way we were going
Where would I be now
Where would I be now if we'd never met
Would I be singing this song to someone else instead
I don't know
but like you said:

Something changed

Notes

Reportedly, this was originally written around the same time as the It material in 1982-83. However, there is no record if it being recorded in a studio nor does it appear on a setlist from that time. Therefore, the chances are that it either had a different title or it was abandoned before being performed or recorded, only to be resurrected in 1995.
