Hindsight

Lyrics: Rob Wasserman, John Wesley Harding
Music: Rob Wasserman, John Wesley Harding

Sung by Rob Wasserman's daughter Sara during a Ratdog Furthur Festival concert on 2 August 1997 - essentially just Sara accompanied by Rob on bass.

I should have tried a little harder
Well I would have
If only I could have been [other]
If only, and as the song remains
As we toss the [final dough]
I'll always love you better when you're turning off the lights
In hindsight
In hindsight

I spend my memories on might have beens
Who doesn't, who doesn't wish they were perfect
Well I wasn't, though I [?]
As they're washed clean by the desert
I'll always love you better when you're all dressed up in white
In hindsight
In hindsight

My finger's on the rewind
Of the peril they'll past
The life we never led
It's the only left at last

And when we see each other by mistake
It happens
Your eyes would often go unrecognised
It doesn't matter
'Cause every time we meet
I'll do another rewrite
I recall us with delight
'Cause nothing shines as bright as hindsight
As hindsight
Nothing shines as bright as hindsight
Nothing shines as bright as hindsight
Nothing shines as bright as hindsight
