Text - Did I leave you behind

  • I can see you in a new tomorrow
    I can see you in a brighter light
    Where you are going now I cannot
    follow
    What I offer is the other side
    Take your time now,
    Carefully
    Just keep me in your memory


    I know that waiting often takes a while


    Did I leave you behind
    If you are on my mind
    If I'm losing at night
    Every night
    Will you leave me behind
    Am I still on your mind
    I'm falling from both ends
    Of the line


    Still I see you in a new beginning
    Coming to me in a different light
    I wouldn't fight if there could be
    no winning
    But Darling, sometimes many things
    are right
    So Take your time now, carefully
    Keep me in your memory


    Sometimes waiting wants to take a while

    *Friends, if you've lost your way You will find it again some day*

  • I open a discussion about : 'unreleased songs recorded(?) by Morten Harket'!


    1- Did I Leave You Behind?

    I heard this song for the first time at the Night of The Proms in December 2013,i think this song was better than 'There Is A Place' and i really liked it during the 'Brother' tour in Paris at the Olympia,this is really a fantastic song but i think if this song will be released it would be great to released a LIve Symphonic Orchestra version and apop version style' I Just Can't get Enough' of depeche Mode for a vinyl limited edition signed by the artist himself!
    Also i think it could be a great idea to Rearrange The Song for the pop version by keeping these lyrics:


    I can see you in a new tomorrow
    I can see you in a brighter light
    Where you are going now I cannot
    follow
    What I offer is the other side
    Take your time now,
    Carefully
    Just keep me in your memory
    I know that waiting often takes a while

    and writing a new lines instead of


    [Did I leave you behind
    If you are on my mind
    If I’m losing at night
    Every night
    Will you leave me behind
    Am I still on your mind
    I’m falling from both ends
    Of the line
    ]= too sentimental as usual......

  • nikita, songs are something very private and we should be able to leave the lyrics as they are because the listeners don´t know why Morten wrote these lines for whom. Don´t you agree?


    Bei der sind Hopfen und Malz verloren :roll: einfach ignorieren ;)

    sometimes some songs have several different versions,and different lyrics for the same song!
    ex : Analogue = Minor Key Sonata or Butterfly Butterfly (the last H)
    i like the 2 versions.
    there is probably somewhere an other version of Did i Leave You Behind and i think it could be great to have a pop version of the song released!
