I Thought I Saw It Coming

This song is by John Illsley and appears on the album Streets of Heaven (2010) and on the Live album Live in London (2015).

I thought I saw it coming, still took me by surprise
Was difficult to sidestep, nowhere left to hide
Even though I saw it coming it's out of your control
But I'm feeling so much better now you're off my payroll

It seems we're always waiting for those demons to appear
Seems we're always watching if it's wine or if it's beer
Magic has been broken, the spell has washed away
Fences have been shifted, there's a smell of slow decay

Even though I saw it coming, the memory plays tricks
I tried so hard to make it all work out
I thought I saw it coming but you put me in a fix
This house is made of straw and not bricks

How long before I forget the fuss I made of you
You are just a memory I was passing through
I thought I saw it coming, never saw you walk the line
What you need is help my friend, what you need is time

Now I gave all I could to you but it never was enough
We all know where we're heading when the going gets tough
I thought I saw it coming, we all went for the ride
A problem for your dignity, a problem for your pride

Even though I saw it coming, the memory plays tricks
I tried so hard to make it all work out
I thought I saw it coming but you put me in a fix
This house is made of straw and not bricks
