One of those special songs that make you shudder just hearing the opening bars is Lately. A ballad that describes how overwhelming suspicion and uncertainty of a relationship in first person.

In the song was reflected the excellence by nature of a musician capable of tear your soul with his voice, able to soak up emotions with his letter, make you partaker of his doubts and sadness. Create an atmosphere of intimacy that allows feelings to come in its purest form. For this only need the company of his piano, and his extraordinary voice masterfully playing one of the most wonderful songs that have been composed.






Lately

Lyrics

Lately, I have had the strangest feeling
With no vivid reason here to find
Yet the thought of losing you's been hanging
'round my mind

Far more frequently you're wearing perfume
With you say no special place to go
But when I ask will you be coming back soon
You don't know, never know

Well, I'm a man of many wishes
Hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel my eyes won't let me hide
‘'Cause they always start to cry
‘'Cause this time could mean goodbye

Lately I've been staring in the mirror
Very slowly picking me apart
Trying to tell myself I have no reason
with your heart

Just the other night while you were sleeping
I vaguely heard you whisper someone's name
But when I ask you of the thoughts your keeping
You just say nothing's changed

Well, I'm a man of many wishes
I hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel my eyes won't let me hide
‘'Cause they always start to cry
‘'Cause this time could mean goodbye, goodbye

Oh, I'm a man of many wishes
I hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel my eyes won't let me hide
‘'Cause they always start to cry
‘'Cause this time could mean goodbye
