"Lately" as written by Christopher Kelly, Will Baker and Pete Woodruff....
Lately (I've been watching you)
Been thinkin' 'bout you baby
(and everything you do)
Just sittin' away watching the days go by
Just sittin' away watching the days go by

Have you ever felt a breeze hit hard,
Like the wind was blowing it apart
As you're spinning like a merry-go-round,
Indications of a storm touching down
Wish that I can wear the rain and storm,
But I guess it was heart break from the norm
Was a day I will always remember,
The saddest day in sweet November

Lately (I've been watching you) been thinkin' 'bout you baby
(And everything you do)
Just sittin' away watching the days go by (2x)

Baby I'm on my knees praying God help me please,
Bring my baby back, right back to me
If lovin' you was right then I don't want to go wrong
So I drown myself with tears,
Sittin' here, singin' another sad love song

Lately (I've been watching you) been thinkin 'bout you baby
(And everything you do)
Just sittin' away watching the days go by
Just sittin' away watching the days go by

Lately I've been torn apart,
I wish you hadn't broke my heart
I'm missin' you babe,
Missin' you every day
Lately I've been torn apart,
I wish you hadn't broke my heart
I'm missin' you babe,
Missin' you every day
Lately (i've been watching you) been thinkin 'bout you baby
(And everything you do)
Just sittin away watching the days go by
Just sittin away watching the days go by

    General CommentThis song puts me in mind of some person simply missing someone they used to love. It's like- they know they shouldn't miss them, but it keeps creeping up in their mind.

    General CommentMan, this song reminds me of my little sister's high school sweetheart named James (Jay) and had a very bad motorcycle accident. He survived, but suffered permanent brain damage... I remember him with this song because he and my sis used to play it all the time when it came out.
