What time is it?
Would you tell me, wolf?
Are you coming around here
With your teeth so sharp

I never gave you the best part of me
I just let you in charge for a little while

Must of been
Must of been some great fury
That took you so far
Took you so far away

Think that you might be wrong
Think that you might
Think that you might be wrong
Think that you might be wrong
Think that you might
Think that you might be wrong

And look at you now
With your confidence
Riding around on a lion's back
Mistaken a shadow for a stranger's love
Well, you're larger than life when the lighting is right

Must of been
Must of been some great fury
That took you so far
Took you so far away

Hey, hey

Oh, think that you might be wrong
Think that you might
Think that you might be wrong
Think that you might be wrong
Think that you might
Think that you might be wrong

I think "must of been" is a bastardization of "must've been", which is the contraction of "must have been".

I could be completely wrong.  :-)
 Right up there with substituting "don't" for doesn't and "aint" for isn't.   Grrrrrrr.

Probably not a typo.  Lots of folks in the U.S. say it this way.  Children do it all the time.

Still, I "Think that you might be wrong."  Just saying ;)

Too much of it about these days.  Take Mr Gallagher, for example: 

"Take that look from off your face".

Really?

Your are completely correct.  Only English people who have no understanding of grammar substitute of for have!  It isn't even the right part of speech.

I have read this on the net sometimes. Do native English speakers really use that instead of "have"?

Seems bizarre to me.

I believe the RP site has the lyrics for the songs somehow pulled from lyric sites like AZLyrics and SongMeanings.com.  Those sites likely use some sorts of speech-to-text or voice recognition applications, which often make inaccurate phonetic translations.  I imagine that's the source of that incorrect lyric in this case and many other instances.  The lyrics are not linked from the artists' sites.

My guess would be that it comes from a contracted must've.

This, and also another pet peeve of mine, saying, for example, "try AND go" instead of "try TO go"....drives me nuts, especially when I see professional media figures (journalists, writers, etc.) do it.

This album was released in 2012.  Hardly what I would consider an oldie.  A goodie though.
I never thought in my life that I might be wrong {#Eh}

Almost did it for me, until the electric guitar kicked in for no purpose. A bit challenging though after Talk Talk's Eden 1988 wonder.

It always baffles me when I'm working away and hear a song so sweet that I have to stop and check it out, then find that some people don't get the same vibe...  It's a beautiful thing that we don't all think alike!

Please play this every day :~)
I'm hearing a Glenn Fry/Jackson Browne influence. Kinda dig it.

Good band, lovely song!
lovely track, shame iTunes won't let me buy it as I am outside the USA...

I agree with your assessment of this song.  The chord progression seems like a pretty common one for the 1950s and '60s, especially when played with an arpeggio.  It's not a style which was "invented" by Leonard Cohen.

 
Doo wop? Something like Earth Angel...could be better examples

I immediately heard "What's New Pussycat" but I admit I am usually way off . . .

Sweet. Just makes me want to slow dance w/my baby.

  Yeah, they grow on you. Pretty tasty lyrics.


A little like the Don Henley solo albums. Voice is similar.
I'm starting to like these guys more and more.
Agree - really nice song. Kinda old-school 60s and a little different from the previous Great Lake Swimmers album.
me 3! i didn't appreciate it the first few times; was turned off by the beginning sounding too much like a prince sobg. but i appreciate it more n more each time i hear it. it is unique. i love the strings w elec guitar. and the harmony.

I am not sure what you are going for but there is a Skeeter Davis tune ("End of the World") that has a similar rhythmn.
Sooo relaxing, fine strings, can't go wrong with this :), thank you DJ.
That was wonderful!  And from a sweet part of the world—we drove through that country on our honeymoon 18 years ago on our way to Niagra Falls.  One quaint little Canadian town after another..  with very friendly folks.

Far less pretentious than Eagles. Far more genuine and meaningful imo.
i love this spring song

Very different GLS, from the other song played here.  I like this. {#Yes}

Yes, I think they are trying to say that Cuba is a visually interesting place. Want to see my pictures?

I could be mistaken, maybe I should have been looking at Florida......
9>10 in fact ...
8>9 it is
Thinking of things Canadian, reminds me some more C R Avery is required.
Love that spring reverb sound.
8 -> 9

"Are you pregnant?"
I've never commited that faux pas, although I did comment to my wife-to-be that her feet were rather large, weren't they?  That didn't go over very well, let me tell you.

has nothing to do with the song  but  "you're just like your mother"  has always done me in nicely

John Mayer?

There is no worse feeling than to be proven wrong.  Best not to think you are right in the first place.  When I point this out to others, they call me arrogant.  What a vicious cycle of confusion. 


Hmmm, I like them but am not sure about this one. Will hold off rating until a few more listens.
