"As You Said" as written by and Jack/brown Bruce....
Let's go down to where it's clean
To see the time that might have been.
The tides have carried off the beach.
As you said,
The sun is out of reach.

Let's go back to where it's clean
To see what year it might have been.
The road have carried off the smiles.
As you said,
To judge them at the trial.

Let's go back to now that's bad
To see the time we migt have had.
The rails have carried off the trains.
As you said,
I'll never come again, again, again, again.

    General Commentaccording to my six year old granddaughter this is a sad song...
    having been deserted by her mom, i think she would know.

    Let's go down to where it's clean
    yeah right, that's hardly possible, but the direction is -- down and there are no worries there...

    To see the time that might have been.
    *sick laugh* yo sun -- it be to late for that now..

    The tides have carried off the beach.
    As you said,
    The sun is out of reach.
    i'm afraid that this is a simple fact of lice.
    the tides are contolled by the moon -- daughter of a passionate love child and the beach is where we live
    no way, no way to be happy now. you frickin bitch, hope it was worth it *sarcasm*...

    Let's go back to where it's clean
    To see what year it might have been.
    The roads have carried off the smiles.
    As you said,
    To judge them at the trials.
    you know those happy times we could have had? well you took the wrong path and there is no way they are ever going to happen now..
    i hope it was worth it to you. tell it to the judge you stupid tw__!

    Let's go back to now that's bad
    To see the time we might have had.
    The rails have carried off the trains.
    As you said,
    I'll never come again, again, again, again.
    boohoo! let's call the wahmbulance.. not that what you want even matters. as if you really care about how your actions have affected my beautiful granddaughters.

    well - - i guess love is a powerful thing. don't let anyone get in the way of your animal instinct- - ok?

    kharma is a bitch! great song!

    General CommentSuch and unusual song from a great band. I wouldn't describe this as a 'rock song', just a great song. It has a melancholy flair to it, not unlike "Passing the Time". Must be the cello coupled with Jack Bruce's plaintive wail, especially when he says "The sun... is out... of reach!"

    General Commenta very powerful song and one of my favorites. It had a profound effect me one night in my youth in the late 1960's when I had someone slip me a mood altering drug; this song was then played and I really felt like part of it!
    Its not so much a sad song, but one of "what if". Its even more relevant as I have become older, I chose a course and this song looks back to say, "alright, all this happened, we can look back but change nothing."
    With Jack Bruce's passing its even more powerful. a masterpiece.
