"Late In The Day" as written by and Daniel/coombes Goffey....
It's late in the day,
I'm thinking of you,
Things that you say.
So long,
So long for me,

It's late in the day,
I'm talking to you
Hear what I say,
So long,
So long for me,

All the time I thought of you,
In an ordinary way,
You slip back down the heart away,
All I really have to say
Is people pass along the way,
Thoughts of you and me again,

I lay on my bed,
Searching my mind,
Writing my love,
So long,
So long for me,

I sleep on the road,
Dreaming of a sound,
Coming my way,
So long,
So long for me,

All the time I thought of you,
In an ordinary way,
Check back down the heart away,
And all I really have to say
Is people pass along the way,
Thoughts of you and me again,

All the time I thought of you,
In an ordinary way,
You slip back down the heart away,
And all I really have to say
Is people pass along the way,
I close my eyes and turn away,
All the time I think of you,
In an ordinary day,
Check back down the heart away,
And all I really have to say
There's people passin' 'long the way,
Thoughts of you and me again!

    General CommentI took it that he meant ordinary way as platonic and now realises that people have come and gone but he has thought of this friend again and again and now he has romantic feelings for them
    But also it is late in the day - they are near the end of there youth / time together / life and he has kind of missed the boat.

    General CommentI always thought this was a song of regret...with the writer reminiscing about the times they had with an old flame and seeing them in a beautiful light, yet at the time they didn't think much of them

    (All the time I thought of you, in an ordinary way)

    I love this song personally, great vocals, the meaty guitar solo about 3 minutes in always makes me smile, easily one of the highlights of the greatest hits alb.
