The Day I Saved the World [demo]

A song I wrote in the early 70s. The final version probably won’t be much different to this, just a bit tidier. Especially the vocal… If you don’t like it, blame it on the bossa nova.

Vocal and Spanish guitars by DH.

Once I believed that love
And good intentions
Would win the day
And we would overcome

Now I’ve learned it does no good
To lean on love and knock on wood
Now you’re gone
And I’m the lonely one

I found all the wrong things to do
But just for one moment, loving you
I could have saved the world

Since I lost track of you
I’ve lost sight of a star or two
But love’s a game
That tends to leave you scarred

And though you say the story’s done
There’s still time to find the sun
If you would only tell me
Where you are

I found all the wrong things to do
But just for one moment, loving you
I could have saved the world
