Music Monday: Somewhere Down the Road by Barry Manilow

My mom dislocated her hip again yesterday (she's just fine now), so I was out driving to the hospital to give her a ride home and turned on the Sirius XM Eighties on 8 countdown for this week in 1982... Roxy's sweet sixteen year! Barry Manilow came on, singing "Somewhere Down the Road." The song takes me back to the first summer I worked at WBRW in Bridgewater, NJ... and one of these days I will write a long rambling post about what I know now that I wish I knew then about finding the right one, but in the meantime, it's time for Music Monday.

I know LadyJava is a big Barry Manilow fan, so this is probably a repeat, but here's a nice live version from the Kodak Theater (think "Hollywood Week"):



We had the right love
At the wrong time
Guess I always knew inside
I wouldn't have you for a long time

Those dreams of yours
Are shining on distant shores
And if they're calling you away
I have no right to make you stay
But

Somewhere down the road
Our roads are gonna cross again
It doesn't really matter when
But somewhere down the road
I know that heart of yours
will come to see
That you belong with me

Sometimes goodbyes are not forever
It doesn't matter if you're gone
I still believe in us together
I understand more than you think I can
You have to go out on your own
So you can find your way back home
And

Somewhere down the road
Our roads are gonna cross again
It doesn't really matter when
But somewhere down the road
I know that heart of yours
will come to see
That you belong with me
Letting go is just another way to say
I'll always love you so

We had the right love
At the wrong time
Maybe we've only just begun
Maybe the best is yet to come
'Cause

Somewhere down the road
Our roads are gonna cross again
It doesn't really matter when
But somewhere down the road
I know that heart of yours
will come to see
That you belong
With me
