Jennings, Waylon - Right For The Time Lyrics

Almost out of adolescence and into a world we didn't know
Not necessaryly love but in trouble with a fire down below
Looking back for a feeling it's just something far away and long ago
I can still recall the name but she's really someone I don't even know

But she was right for the time
She was right for the time but time has a way of moving on

I do recall a gypsy lady and a younger man in over his head
I was her believer taken in by every loving word she said
It was there for the first time the sweet and the bitter taste of love
When you're young and alive too much never seems to be enough

It seems the young and the innocent are drawn like a moth to a flame
To the wild and the reckless believing they are one in the same
She never found a way to separate the good from the bad
And she never understood that love was all we ever really had

She was right for the time but time has a way of moving on
With her eyes on tomorrow one day she turned around and I was gone
I'd have to say in a way she just might be better off alone
She was right for the time but time has a way of moving on

    Right for the Time is my favourite Waylon album, covering virtually every aspect of his much missed personality and talent. My favorite song on it is the confessional love song, The Most Sensible Thing, though every song is superb and the album as a whole has a coherence which makes it a truly edifying experience to listen to in its entirety. Unfortunately, it has been neglected by the professional arbiters of country music; it is not even available on iTunes in the UK, where I live.
