Bad Timing Lyrics - Blue Rodeo

Review The Song (29)



Hey it's me what a big surprise
Calling you up from a restaurant
Around the bend
Just got in from way up North
I'm achy and tired now
And I could use a friend
I'd be a fool
To think that you do
Want to see me again

I Know it's been awhile since I talked to you
Nothing wrong
Just nothing ever goes as planned
Many times I thought I'd call
Didn't have your number in my hand
Oh, I know it's true
You'd never do
sponsored links
The same thing to me

I never meant to make you cry
And though I know I shouldn't call
It just reminds us of the cost
For everything we've lost
Bad timing that's all

And maybe soon there'll come a day
When no more tears will fall
We each forgive a little bit
And we both look back on it
As just bad timing thats all

Used to have so many plans
Something always seemed to turn out wrong
Never could catch up to you
Moving on and doing all you've done
I don't know why
The harder I try
The harder it comes

I never meant to make you cry
And though I know I shouldn't call
It just reminds us of the cost
For everything we lost
Badtiming that's all

And maybe soon there'll come a day
When no more tears will fall
We each forgive a little bit
And we both look back on it
It's just bad timing that's all

We each forgive a little bit
And we both look back on it
It's just bad timing that's all

Lisa Talley/I love my husband Brian | Reviewer: Lisa Talley | 2/5/14

I first heard this on an episode of corner gas, I felt like someone had punched me. I left my husband for about 2 weeks you see he had a bad temper and it was the only way to make understand. His health was bad and I was afraid one of us would have a heart attack. So I went toa womans shelter. We talked everyday and I would take our doggie out. He finally began to see I was right. I came back home and things were better, we talked and everyday I touched him rubbed his head and said I love you dear. He cried and begged not go but I had to. Then one night I was watching corner gas the one where hank imagines brent sell the gas station and lacy goes back to toronto to open a resturant. Near the end the song started to play and got to the part I didn't mean to make you cry it was true I didn't mean to, I cried my eyes out everytime I hear that part I cry even tho he's in heavan now I will always cry, and now that I know the name I can practise and sing it for him. He'll hear me. The day we met was god's blessing, it was a good friday, the next day we met and were together for I say 25 he'd 24 years. The best years I'll ever have anyone. One of kind my man. I love you dear. Lisa

Bad timing is now good. | Reviewer: DKS | 1/15/14

Back in high school I always liked this girl but was intimidated by her a little. She had a boyfriend and I had a girlfriend and it was as the song says bad timing. Over the past 30 plus years we bumped into each other off and on and I would wonder what if. But again bad timing. She was married and so was I. BUT both our marriages ended and we met once again this summer past. This time it was GOOD TIMING. We have been dating since then and I couldn't be happier. Our first date I cooked her supper at my place and played this song. We danced to it and now it is "our song". I guess good things come to those who wait.

Story of my life | Reviewer: Vicki | 1/9/13

I fell for the "one" when I was 13. About 3 years ago we met again and for a year it was the most amazing time of my life. But stuff happens, neither of us did anything wrong, but life and obligations took priority and I guess the timing is off again. Here I am 43 and I still love this man with every part of my soul. Why does God put the "one" right in front of you and then not allow you to have him? I cannot move on, I will love him forever. I can't settle for less. This song, just nailed it.

What a song! | Reviewer: Jean | 8/26/12

When I heard this song it reminded me of a certain someone, I met years ago. I never tried to get to really know him, but he would acknowledge every time he would see me some where. I ended up in a relationship, a relationship I'm still in. But when I heard this song, it makes me think of him.

Another case of 'Bad Timing' | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/19/10

Just ran into someone I have known for years which I have always carried a secret torch for. This song brought a tear to my eye on the plane and now back at home as I continue to wonder What If? Not sure if he truly understands what he does to my heart I guess time will tell!

going through it right now | Reviewer: jay | 9/17/09

i know how everyone on here feels when they hear this song. The woman i left my wife for rejected me because of timing and now four years later we are talking again. her current boyfriend just played this song for her so i looked up th elyrics and was lead here. at least i know im not alone... and neither is she. M if your reading this know that i love you and always will regardless of what you decide.
maybe it is a case of bad timing, and maybe it is meant to happen... now or eventually. I dont know .... ok thanks everyone now im crying

What an emotional piece of music - Bad Timing. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/7/09

This song has some of the most moving lyrics of any song I've heard. Each of us can recall that one time when we met the one who was supposed to be the "one" but somehow things never woked out. Thirty years have past and I still wonder how life would have been even though I realize it wasn't meant to be. Just hope she is happy.

It was always too late with me. | Reviewer: Conner | 3/16/09

I always know it would be bad timing when our eyes meet. I never meant to make any of them cry anymore than I meant to make them love me. I see that look, tears held back,the tremble of lips, the fear of being alone,and I know I soon must go. I have already hurt them because they know I will not stay. I don't want forever with one person. I don't want to be their one person forever. It hurts too much to love. This song is me.

timeless relate | Reviewer: mike smith | 12/23/08

This song to me is a classic..I am a romantic..theres a girl I met on line who drives me crazy and can't wait to meet. We both crave for that first meeting...only a lill distance and a border and relationships keep us a part. Blue Rodeo hits us in the heart of where we live ...our relationships.

so true | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/23/08

So many relationships fail to develop because the timing is wrong. This song has applied to me in many stages of my life. It is classic and always makes me sad and wonder what could have been or what could happen if only the timing was better.

So Very True | Reviewer: Sara | 8/27/08

This song desribes a relationship I've had on and off with that "guy" in my life you know ladies the guy you know that you'd love to settle down with and he always makes your stomach go in knots but it never works out and hopefully maybe soon they'll come day it will. Blue Rodeo you say it best and MM you play the part.

bad timing | Reviewer: schmoo | 8/20/08

this is a song that was in my collection but never thought to listening the words until an old flame brought it to my attention recently... Well it hurt to hear what he had always been feeling and never told me until I was married and had a family.... I guess he is alittle to late but it sure made me think and cry ...alot.

The title says it all! | Reviewer: lisa | 3/28/08
