Ever regretted a break-up? This song is for you.
A duet recorded with Heather Eccles.


VERSE 1: (Neil)
We were right. How could I not see?
I was blinded by my sight.
Understated and underrated. Took too long to decide.
We were right.

VERSE 2: (Heather)
You said "Goodbye". I just said "Why?".
Ended in a fight. How else could it end when both of us need to be right?

CHORUS 1: (Heather)
Tell me now then let me lie. Wear me down until I cry.
But now that you're gone it's to late to realise.
Oh, we were right.

VERSE 3: (Neil)
Take my hand. Tell me you understand.
All it takes is a word. I never intended for my words to make you burn.

CHORUS 2: (both)
There we were just like that night.
Holding hands, still in denial.
There you are right by my side.
And now that you're gone, I finally realise.
Oh, we were right.

We were right. Ooh. We were right.

I miss you already. I miss you always.
