RICK FORD ≈ Lyrics

ONCE IN A WHILE
Rick Ford

Another leak in the pond, another lonely old day
Itís been 5 years, 3 days since you went away
But donít worry Ďbout me Ďcos Iím doing fine
Iíve still got my friends, theyíre called whisky and wine
I hear your new manís a singer, and that makes me smile
I donít miss you that much, Ďcept maybe once in a while

Once in a while, Hey once in a while
Though I know reflection was never your style
As you journey on down this long country mile
Maybe youíll miss me once in a while

I hope that he makes you happy, brings joy to your life
The way that I never did, though God knows I tried
Is he good with our kids, is he good with your Mum
Does he worship the ground that you walk upon
Are there flowers for your birthday, does he love you all night
I donít miss you that much, Ďcept maybe once in a while

They say youíve moved down to Oxford, I guess youíll like it there
You were never that fond, of this cold northern air
And youíve got a new job, something in IT
Me, Iím still singing my songs, barely making ends meet
I still see raindrops and starlight when I think of your eyes
But I donít miss you that much, Ďcept maybe once in a while

Once in a while, Hey once in a while
Though I know reflection was never your style
As you journey on down this long country mile
Maybe youíll miss me once in a while
