I Never Saw it Coming

Written By: Ken Samuelsen

I Never Saw it Coming by Ken Samuelsen © 2008

I believed in you. I thought I was the one that you were loving
Then you hit me from behind. I never saw it coming.

I walk in the valley of the shadow of desire
I gave you all my love you threw it into the fire.
You never knew what to do with what I gave.
And in the end there was nothing left to save.

I believed in you. I thought I was the one that you were loving
Then you hit me from behind. I never saw it coming. (2)

This heart’s needs love I’ve got a heat-seeking driving wheel
What I thought we shared were things that only I could feel
You could play the game, the master of an easy smile.
But you would turn it off and on like you were reaching for the radio dial.

I believed in you. I thought I was the one that you were loving
Then you hit me from behind. I never saw it coming. (2)

I looked into your eyes, from deep inside my mirror.
I could see the lies but mostly I saw fear.
You were never there for me, I was there for you
Now I can’t believe the things that you have put me through.

I believed in you. I thought I was the one that you were loving
Then you hit me from behind. I never saw it coming. (2)

This Ragged Shore

This Ragged Shore by Ken Samuelsen © 2008

I sailed the seas since I was young.
There are no things I’ve left undone.
I’ve been where e’er the four winds blow
I called my home the blue meadow

Ch-But I’ll not sail the seas no more, Lay me to rest on this ragged shore.

This brigantine could spear the stars.
Her moonlit sails would light up the dark
Against the wind, she never failed
But she can’t fight these rocks and shale.

Ch-But I’ll not sail my ship no more, Lay me to rest on this ragged shore.

Bridge-
The cauldron sky, the dagger reef
The red dawn stains the bloody sea.
Her now I lie tattered and torn.
No more will I e’er fight these storms

Ch-And I’ll not sail my ship no more, Lay me to rest on this ragged shore.

With Cape Town girls I danced all night
In Bombay town they held me tight
But the fairest lass I’ve known by name
Still waits for me by Dublin Bay

Ch-But I’ll not see my love no more, lay me to rest on this ragged shore.
No I’ll not see my love dear Lord, lay me to rest on this ragged shore
