Song Lyrics: Have You Ever Wondered?


Lyrics: Maria D’Alessandro ©2012

Music: Marcel van der Linden ©2012


Have you ever wondered where you’d be right now

If you drove your car and just ignored the signs

Down some lonesome highway, the sun in your eyes

To a new town where you could learn how to smile


CHORUS

Have you ever wondered how your life would be

Without all the people you’ve loved so dear

Would you be as wonderful - would you be as true

Without all the love given to you


Have you ever wondered where you’d be right now

If you knew from the start you could win if you tried

Well now is the time to put those feelings aside

Pick up your game - don’t be lagging behind


CHORUS


Have you ever wondered where you’d be right now

If nobody had talent playing rhythm guitar

No more lead breaks, no more music playing loud

No more clapping and rockin’ in time

CHORUS

Very nice lyrics. This song sounds like something I've heard Eric Clapton sing. Maybe he should sing it.

...no personally speaking I have never wondered about Maria's world class songwriting ability - she is the real deal and would make her husband Bob (Dylan) very proud and the performance here by Marcel completes the package and makes it a very nice collaboration indeed - lake erie time 7:19pm

Great lyrics Maria. The melody is a little plodding but that isn't down to you is it. I'd try and do it in a Neil Young or Paul Simon folky style myself.

I especially love the chorus...

Have you ever wondered how your life would be

Without all the people you’ve loved so dear

Would you be as wonderful - would you be as true

Without all the love given to you...

Words of wisdom indeed and I have taken them as a positive affirmation for my own comfort and well-being.

You are a star Maria. Love you.
