God If I Saw Her Now


"Rest your head my love;
Rest your tired limbs;
Leave your mind at peace, at peace, at peace,
What are you thinking now?"

"Thinking of a girl
As golden as the sun
She loved me not like you, like you, like you"
"Pray do you love me more?"

"It's hard to say for sure,
A child, sixteen, was I
Both virgins did we buy, we buy, we buy"
"You loved her more than me".

"She left me one dark night
She took my heart for free
I've seen her not since then, since then, since then,
God if I saw her now."

    General CommentAnt always seemed to be hung up on his old girlfriend Lucy from his Genesis days. Apparently when they broke up he took it pretty bad, and I guess this song documents a time when he tried to move forward with someone else, but just couldn't get over it still no matter how hard he tried. And how can you move forward in a new relationship when you can't get over the ex? Very sad when you think about it, knowing you want to let it go but can't.
