A Different Song (Words and music by Alan Gillis)

Verse 1
See the World through different eyes
Take every point of view
Never dare to criticise
Someone else is watching you
Lovers' quarrels - broken dreams
No one's right or wrong it seems
We all write a different song

Verse 2
Friends and lovers disappear
Changing like the day
A photograph, a memory
Golden chances thrown away
Never sure which way to go
Right or wrong we'll never know
We all write a different song

I'm the one who takes the time
With pen and ink
And words that rhyme
I tell the tales but they belong
To someone else's different song


Repeat bridge

A different song
A different song
A different song
