"Maybe You're Right" as written by and Yusuf Islam....
Now maybe you're right and maybe you're wrong
But I ain't gonna argue with you no more
I've done it for too long.
It was getting so good why then, where did it go?
I can't think about it no more tell me if you know.
You were loving me, I was loving you
But now there ain't nothing but regretting
Nothing, nothing but regretting everything we do.

I put up with your lies like you put up with mine,
But God knows we should have stopped somewhere,
We could have taken the time,
But time has turned, yes, some call it the end.
So tell me, tell me did you really love me like a friend?
You know you don't have to pretend,
It's all over now It'll never happen again, no no no,
It'll never happen again , it won't happen again
Never, never, never, it'll never happen again
No, no, no, no

So maybe you're right, and maybe you're wrong
But I ain't gonna argue with you no more
I've done it for too long.
It was getting so good why then, where did it go?
I can't think about it no more tell me if you know.
You were loving me, I was loving you
But now there ain't nothing but regretting
Nothing, nothing but regretting everything we do.

    General CommentHe seems to be at the end of the relationship, a long strenuous one, where neither involved had much fun. Kinda sounds like a divorvce song, and in the song he seems tired, but that's just my input.

    General CommentI don't really think this song needs any explaining; the lyrics are pretty straightforward. I think this is the best song on Mona Bone Jakon. It has a great tune and is just really relaxing.

    General CommentLovely stuff!

    One of my most favourite Cat Stevens numbers.

    I think Wikipedia says this is about his girlfriend Patty D'arbanville when she left him for someone else(possibly Mick Jagger).

    What a strange woman!
