Tom Sparks: Music

Right Place, Wrong Time (acoustic version)

(performed by Stacy Donahue)
written by Stacy Donahue & Tom Sparks
When you're not looking, yeah that's when love falls,
Like when the rain drops down from a cloudless sky,
Or when ivy's growing on a brick wall.
You can't control it and you'll ask the questions, "Why?"
Like why did I go there? Why did you have to step in my life?

It was the right place, wrong time to say,
"Why should a heart have to ever feel that way?"
You think you've finally found someone that's right,
But it all just stops and you let it slip away.
Right place, wrong time.

You'll think about him and remember back when,
You'll wonder just what could've,
All the should'ves, would'ves, maybes, what-ifs.
You know you're better off, but you can hear your heart say,
"If time had been no question, where would we be today?"

The right place, wrong time to say,
"Why should a heart have to ever feel that way?"
You think you've finally found someone that's right,
But it all just stops and you let it slip away.
Right place, wrong time.

You can't spend your life living what might have been.
You need to hear that voice inside and know that your heart was in

The right place, wrong time to say,
"Why should a heart have to ever feel that way?"
You think you've finally found someone that's right,
But it all just stops and you let it slip away, and deep down you pray it's right.
But it all just stops and you let it slip away.
Right place, wrong time.
