Countdown to New Shoes Album Day 11, Track 5

Standard

(Post edited – each day, a new song was previewed. The preview link was the same every day. I have removed those links as they are now dead. As the band releases videos, I’ll adjust links for specific songs. Your best bet right now is to head on over to ShoesWire.com and buy Ignition. You won’t be disappointed. The guys put a great deal of time and thought into this album and the songs are stellar.)

Shoes, that amazing Power Pop band from Zion, Illinois, has been working on a new album for over a year. It’s titled Ignition and will have an “Extreme Fan” release on July 3rd. Every day, starting on June 18, they are revealing a new song, counting down from Track 15.

Track 5 is Maybe Now by Jeff Murphy.

Buy Ignition from ShoesWire.com.

MAYBE NOW
(Jeff Murphy)

Play by the rules
And life can be so cruel
Holdin’ on to what has never been again
Some feelings fade
As time slips away
Haunted by the ghost of yesterday today

Hidden hopes you can’t get over
Feeling them again

Maybe now you’ll come around
You’ll let your defenses down
If fates allow
I’ll wait somehow
So maybe now

How long will you wait
It’s bound to come too late
Once it’s gone it won’t be back again ‘til then
Now it’s up to you
It’s time to make a move
Wishful thinking doesn’t make it true for you

Take a chance and see what happens
There’s nothing left to lose

Maybe now you’ll come around
You’ll let your defenses down
If fates allow
I’ll wait somehow
So maybe now

Maybe now you’ll come around
You’ll let your defenses down
If fates allow
I’ll wait somehow
So maybe now

I’ll wait somehow
So maybe now
