Tony Banks — Still It Takes Me By Surprise lyrics

It can be strange
In the world we live in
So many things are not how they appear
We sit and talk
Of what it doesn't matter
The meaning of the words we use
Hides behind the sound

Yet still it takes me by surprise
How the feeling overtakes me and fills my mind
With thoughts which even now I can't control
How simple words and gestures
Make the world seem right
No matter what they say
No matter what they say

It's hard to believe
That once we met as strangers
Not knowing of the life that we would share
You lead me on
Through new ways unfamiliar
Or down a road we travelled many times before

Yet still it takes me by surprise
How the feeling overtakes me and fills my mind
With thoughts which even now I can't control
How simple words and gestures
Make the world seem right
No matter what they say
No matter what they say

The years go by
Older yet no wiser
Our hearts and minds remain as they once were
And after all the time
That we have been together
So many times we must have been this way before

Yet still it takes me by surprise
How the feeling overtakes me and fills my mind
With thoughts which even now I can't control
How simple words and gestures
Make the world seem right
No matter what they say
No matter what they say
