Darkness, The - Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time Lyrics




We may not get back what we had, what I threw away
But you know I would do anything, anything you say
I'd cross a thousand miles of broken glass on my hands and knees
I would crawl if for a moment we could cease hostilities

But it seemed like such a good idea at the time,
such a very very good idea at the time.

I don't know where I am, I don't know where I went wrong
either way let's start again
I don't know where I am, I don't know where I went wrong
I don't know where to start again

Now our dream is over, but lately I have found
That you only seem to come alive when I am not around

But it seemed like such a good idea at the time,
such a very very good idea at the time.

I don't know where I am, I don't know where I went wrong
either way let's start again
I don't know where I am, I don't know where I went wrong
I don't know where to start again

[Solo]

But it seemed like such a good idea at the time,
such a very very good idea at the time.

I don't know where I am, I don't know where I went wrong
either way let's start again
I don't know where I am, I don't know where I went wrong
I don't know where to start... again

  1. Just Orso

    Darkness = awesomeness

  2. Thomas Glenn

    Wrestling with Wregret brought me Here!

    Glenn1985 Wallace

    Same just came from there now lol

    Milton Butler

    Right Here

  3. Brigette Fergus

    I love the song it reminds me of my ex …

  4. Orso northeastern

    does anybody know how many millions of records have they sold so far?

  5. pugilat123456

    Tssssss so auto-tuned....

    Connor James

    No it's not you fucking moron

  6. nick sideris

    Songwriting, musicianship and production (Roy Thomas Baker) was much better on this album but lacked the cohesiveness and pure unadulterated rock of P2L, plus some of the songs and instrumentation were a little weird for a rock / metal album

    Orso northeastern

    Still a good album, isnt it?

  7. Soderlund Productions

    May not get back what we had...

  8. George Ofori-Atta

    It's odd to me that it takes so long for humans to give proper respect to great art. Time and time again the shy and bashful factor plays a major role in delaying true praise. This band single-handedly saved rock and roll. It is obvious song after song. Hit after smash hit.

    Just Orso

    Classy opus this is way superior to hot cakes and Pinewood smile

  9. Ben Champion

    This song was a good idea and not just at the time.. at anytime!

  10. Freakazoid

    We may not get back what we had, what I threw away
    But you know I would do anything, anything you say
    I'd cross a thousand miles of broken glass on my hands and knees
    I would crawl if for a moment we could cease hostilities

    But it seemed like such a good idea at the time,
    such a very very good idea at the time.

    I don't know where I am, I don't know where I went wrong
    either way let's start again
    I don't know where I am, I don't know where I went wrong
    I don't know where to start again

    Now our dream is over, but lately I have found
    That you only seem to come alive when I am not around

    But it seemed like such a good idea at the time,
    such a very very good idea at the time.

    I don't know where I am, I don't know where I went wrong
    either way let's start again
    I don't know where I am, I don't know where I went wrong
    I don't know where to start again

    [Solo]

    But it seemed like such a good idea at the time,
    such a very very good idea at the time.

    I don't know where I am, I don't know where I went wrong
    either way let's start again
    I don't know where I am, I don't know where I went wrong
    I don't know where to start... again

    Such nostalgia whenever I listen to the Darkness. When they broke up I stopped listening to them and kind of presumed they hadn't been any good but I went to see them two years ago at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin and they blew the house down! Didn't take themselves seriously which helped their live act but the music was phenomenal. This is a banger of a tune as well!

    BlackNeverLeft

    Joseph Doherty I was at that gig in Dublin,fuckin amazing mate!

  12. Bobaganush26

    Yes this is definitely one of the few bands in the 21st century still producing great rock and roll. It's a shame, stupid ass hip hop. But when you do hear a band like this,  it's fucking epic.

    e8ghtmileshigh1

    Lewronggeneration

    Bro

    What does hip hop have to do with another genre producing music?

  13. Daxter5150

    I know this album didn't do as good as Permission to Land but it's still epic!

    Pavel Blacktown

    i thnk this album is much better that Permission...

    Louie Alcala

    Paulshaggy agree, I like permission but this one is something else

    OH_I _Will

    Paulshaggy this is by far my Fav Drk album...the first one had the radio song on it to carry it...

    Orso northeastern

    overall it is superior to hot cakes

    OH_I _Will

    All that matters is what YOU like better. Don’t lose sleep over what other people dug more...

  14. Gernomino (Old)

    When Justin Hawkins quit they split up for a few years. In a recent video Justin Hawkins actually said he doesn't really want to be as big as they were then because it's too stressful... although he may have been joking. I couldn't really tell.

  15. Awakeandalive1

    No, the lead guy quit in 2007 because his drug habit was destroying him and the band. He got clean(ish) and they reunited last year.

  16. Awakeandalive1

    But they reunited and released another album last year!

  17. VMBand

    it was about 8-10 years ago ... :D

  18. Cas van Dijck

    They introduced my personal 'Era of Rock' (which, by the way, hasn't ended, and probably won't till I die :) in a quite turbulant time in my life.
    It's not like I'm listening to them daily (I knew their debut-album and follow-up, but have to play catch-up on the rest), but some of their songs just stay with you (or at least with me :P), Hazel eyes and Believe in a thing called love maybe the most enjoyable for me.

  19. Tyler Burns

    Because they were seen as Queen-wannabes and the novelty quickly wore off. I have to say, though, they were quite talented and should have been more famous.

  20. Steve E

    not bad music at all was searching hazel eyes, and came up with this band

  21. bulletproofnigel

    This song is so beautiful. I'm so in love with this band.

  22. SuperTransistor

    ma se piace a tutti questa canzone, come è possibile che questo album (che si meritava di più) ha venduto così poco??? :\

  23. Leanne Engdahl

    It always seems like a bloody good idea. lol

  24. norman bates

    original voice indeed ...amazing

  25. Roberto Schecter

    I dun understand why that band is not so famous in whole world

  26. mazzectl69

    bellissima

  27. ShazzyBebazzi

    @Naruyoshi77 Yeah they did! Paste this into the youtube search: "The Darkness Live - Berlin 22/03/06 - Love Is Only A Feeling + Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time"
    It's quite nice live :)

  28. Kisskiss Kisskiss

    bellissimaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  29. Aja Hoskin

    This song is amazing :)

  30. Mark M

    Anyone else think this song is a bit like WOLD by Harry Chapin?

    Mark M

    Anyone, lol?

    W Fresh

  31. brett j
