"I Never Thought I'd See The Day" as written by Leroy Osbourne and Helen Adu....
You shed a shadow on my life
Shed a shadow on a love
Took the shelter out of my life
Took the shelter of a lie

I could see it in your restless eyes
The truth I was hiding
The truth you could not disguise

But I never thought I'd see the day
I knew I'd need a miracle to make you stay
I knew
I needed
A miracle
And I never thought I'd see the day

You put a shadow on a love
Took a shelter of a lie
Took the shelter out of my life

I wish you could shelter me
Shelter me now
I need a miracle
And I never thought I'd see the day

    General CommentI love this song! I wish Sade had made a video out of this one... I think this song is about being cheated on...

    You shed a shaddow on my life (Him )
    Shed a shaddow on a love (His Actions)
    Took the shelter out of my life (He Comes Clean about Cheating)


    I wish you could shelter me (She wish She could Trust Him again... Never again)

    Memorycant believe there is only one comment for this great song...sade is so creative to make such a minimalist song...it reminds me of florida beaches at night; Miami, fort Lauderdale, st. Augustine, etc. ....the breeze, the moonlight, the beauty that can be found away from the city....of course I can relate to the melancholic lyrics....I never thought I 'd see the day... my romantic heart is in my shoes these days.
