my lyricsbox
after all is said and done, it wasn't hard to be the lonely one
sad, but not a tear was shed, you agreed with every word I said
I had my new life started, I couldn't be downhearted
days rolled slowly by, finally you stayed out of my mind

I filed your name under "forgotten"
and then somebody pushed the panic button
suddenly my nerves were shakin'
I realized I could have been mistaken
then like they say like you're supposed ta'
I'm ridin' on a roller coaster
I found love too late, too bad she's not the waiting kind

I never felt like this before, I had to use my imagination
love came to my door, too late for the invitation
delayed reaction, reaction, reaction
delayed reaction (reaction, reaction)

it's a mystery to me, I don't know why our love is history
at the time I didn't know it, and it's so easy for a fool to blow it
you can call me a fool now, I don't feel quite so cool now
guess I was out of time, love was waiting somewhere down the line

I never felt like this before, I had to use my imagination
love came to my door, too late for the invitation
delayed reaction, reaction, reaction
delayed reaction (reaction, reaction)

my heart is growin' fonder
I don't mean henry and I don't mean jane
I got the time to wonder
if it's too late to make her mine again

I never felt like this before, I had to use my imagination
love came to my door, too late for the invitation
delayed reaction, reaction, reaction
delayed reaction (reaction, reaction)
delayed reaction, reaction, reaction
delayed reaction (reaction, reaction)

yea yea-ee-hey yeah, yea yea-ee-hey yeah, whoa now no nah ha ha
never, no I never, said I never
I never felt like this before, no
I never felt like this before (4x)
oh whoa oh oh oh, whoa oh oh oh
I said delayed reaction, ay
I said delayed reaction, yeah
I said delayed reaction, I'm talkin' bout delayed reaction
yea yea-ee-hey yeah, yea yea-ee-hey yea
I never felt like this before (4x)
D-E-L-A-Y-E-D, delayed reaction (2x)
yeah
oh, take me back to brixton, man
