Ross Wilson, John Farnham, and Ross Fraser
I've been a fool, I have been cruel
You put your faith in me
Ask myself why, no alibi

Now that you're facing me
Did things my way, I've had my say
Sometimes I crossed that line
But it seemed like a good idea

Seemed like a good idea at the time
I know I was wrong, I'm holding on
Learning is hard to do
It's not too late, if you will wait

I'll make it up to you
If you refuse, then I will lose
I let our life unwind
But it seemed like a good idea

Seemed like a good idea at the time
Seemed like the ring thing
'Til I watched you go
Seemed like the right thing

But I lost control
Out in the darkness I saw a light
And now I know
A bitter taste has taken the place

Of kisses that were so sweet
Open my eyes, I realise
My lesson is complete
If it ain't broke, don't try to fix it

Sometimes I crossed that line
But it seemed like a good idea
Seemed like a good idea at the time
It seemed like a good idea

Seemed like a good idea at the time
Did things my way, I've had my say
Sometimes I crossed the line
But it seemed like a good idea

Seemed like a good idea at the time
Seemed like a good idea
Seemed like a good idea at the time
This song is from the album "Then Again" and "One Voice: The Greatest Hits".
