When I was younger, I believed that dreams came true
Now, I wonder
'cause I have seen much more of dark skies than blue
Now, I wonder

I keep on praying for a blue sky
I keep on searching through the rain
I keep on thinking of the good times
Will they ever come again?
Now, I wonder
Now, I wonder

I keep on praying for a blue sky
I keep on searching through the rain
I keep on thinking of the good times
Will they ever come again?
Now, I wonder
Now, I wonder

When I was younger, I believed that I could win
Now, I wonder
There was a time when you and I walked hand in hand
Now, I wonder

I keep on searching for the old me
I keep on thinking I can change
I keep on hoping for a new day
Will I ever feel the same?
Now, I wonder
Oh, I wonder
Now, I wonder

Terribly pathetic lyrics. The song is nice, but... really?
And especially when you consider the probability the song is about him...

Hard to hear him w/o thinking of SF... fog, surf, places and people...

"I'll get you Penelope Pitstop"

He's not too bad...but he gets a lot of airplay
Poor guy, .....I wonder if Chris will ever be happy? {#Wink}

Chris is anything but a "girly-man". He is an excellent (by all accounts) surfer and a boxer.

He's probably smarter than you, too, genius-boy. {#Sealed} {#Roflol} {#Wave}

Dangit Bill, you did it again!

The melancholy note of this tune fits the way I feel to a tee. Dang.

I agree. This whole album is just such a perfect fit. One song flows into the other. A must for any trip to Mexico or the tropics.

And that would be because Tom Cruise is freakin' insane.

I like the guitar work. Sounds like his side-man went to the Mark Knopfler school of tastey licks.
He obviously went to a much better school than Knopfler...

The guitar work in this is simply sublime. I like pretty much everything CI has done, but this song is certainly a top ten for me. Even the lyrics have fit well in certain phases of my life. :clap:
It's lovely. I've heard much more on R.P. than in the U.K. That said, most of the good stuff I've bought recently has been as a result of hearing it here.

I start to think that just about every time I hear one of his songs...but then I really start to think about it and realize every single song is about longing and losing. Maybe it's not such a hot deal after all.
I wonder when this song is gunna end... :rolleyes:
Good stuff.

yeee haaar!!!....is this cowboy music? :devil_pimp:
Chris, on the other hand, is someone I can listen to all day long :bounce:
:hearteyes:

That was outstandingly funny. Good thing I am a hetero girl, then. He just reinforces my natural bent. :roflol:

Is that a thumbs up or down for the song? :think:

If I ever meet Chris I'm going to ask him if there's just one chick he wrote 300 or so sad love songs about or a whole bunch.

Yeah, just ask the swooning chix what they think about him.

You should hear him channel Roy Orbison!
Have been a fan for a long time.He's got a good sense of humor also :whistle:

Have to hand it to you, sometimes your pithy comment is right on the mark. Good one! (But 90% of them are crap.)

Not bad. Do I hear the ghost of Ricky Nelson?
I love this whole album.... :sunny:

mmm I could go for some Rusted Root! We need some music with some energy!
This song floats on air... :cool: :guitarist:
Mmmmm, Chris Isaak, :hearteyes:
Great stuff. Too bad his mother didn't teach him to keep his socks pulled up, though.
Yummy! :heartkiss:
I guess it wasn't a "big glasses" set; it is a "greased back hair" set!

Fortunately that didn't keep him from being tortured enough to write this song. :)
Hubba Hubba. Love that voice. :hearteyes:

Nice one. Sounds almost good enough to be a Marshall Crenshaw tune. Seriously.
....yawn.....
You go Chris (and Bill)! :chillpill:
Is that a line from 'Oliver Twist'? "...more , please." A 9.
I could hear this anytime!
Hap Hap Huzzah! For Chris :)
Nice and mellow. Perfect for a lazy day.
This is worse than Rusted Root
I was starting to worry about this set too! :notworthy: Something about his voice just calms me so completely. And I'm not usually game for the twang...
OH!! a new Chris Isaak added. :jump:
