"In Perfect Time" as written by and Gillian Grace Barber....
Can’t rely on time
To change the way you feel
'Cause time it often loses track
Of who it’s got to heal
You can read my palm
And tell me that my future looks strong
And I will play along
Better that than to wait to prove you wrong

'Cause it’s another overcast day
Like it’s been for a week
And I would blame feeling down on the weather
If I had no other reason to be
People let you down
When you least expect them to
And hearts they move around so fast
And love it somehow gets renewed

And my state of mind is hiding in
The shadow you left behind
And this song is playing in my head
As you walk away in perfect time

And you and I are just saving hope
In pockets and of sleeves
For rainy days when you need it most
Rainy days like these

And my state of mind is hiding in
The shadow you left behind
And this song is playing in my head
As you walk away in perfect time

But you can’t rely on time
To change the way you feel
'Cause time it often loses track
Of who it’s got to heal

And my state of mind is hiding in
The shadow you left behind
And this song is playing in my head
As you walk away in perfect time

    General CommentTo me this song represents emotion that I think we all feel sometimes. It gives me the feeling of a break up and the whole feeling down thing that comes with that.

    Like it says "you can't rely on time to change the way you feel" maybe not the break up-er but I think time helps for the break up-ee.

    General Commentbest song off the album, by far.
    she knows it's going to hurt for a long time to come, but she's accepted it and is looking at it in a kind of a sad, nostalgic way, but with hope for the future as well.
