What can I say? I am a child of the 80's and like many of us who survived the era of big hair, penny loafers and the ever present white "Miami-Vice" suits this tune marks a lot of different moments in my life. I always knew at some point in my musical journey I would do a cover of it.

What I especially love about this version is that I got to record it with a really good friend of mine - Penny Brown. She is seriously one of the most gifted female singers that I know and I am a huge fan!

I also love this tune because in a lot of ways it just reminds me of my mom. Why exactly I couldn't tell you. It just does... which I guess is reason enough. :-)


TIME AFTER TIME

Words & Music by C. Lauper and R. Hyman

Lying in my bed, I hear the clock tick and think of you

Caught up in circles, confusion is nothing new

Flashback - warm nights, almost left behind

A suitcase of memories

Time after...

Sometimes you picture me... I'm walking too far ahead

And you're calling to me but I can't hear just what you've said

You say "go slow"

I fall behind

The second hand unwinds

IF YOU"RE LOST YOU CAN LOOK AND YOU WILL FIND ME

TIME AFTER TIME

IF YOU FALL I WILL CATCH YOU, I'LL BE WAITING

TIME AFTER TIME

After my picture fades and darkness has turned to grey

Watching through windows, you're wondering if I'm "ok"

Secrets stolen from deep inside

The drum beats out of time 

(Chorus)
