All Our Past Times Lyrics - Eric Clapton

Review The Song (1)



I don't want to be the one to say I'm sorry.
I don't want to be the one to take the blame.
I don't want to be the one to throw it over.
I don't want to be the one to feel ashamed.

I don't want to be the one who thinks of nothing.
I don't want to be the one to tell you what you have seen.
After all this time, well I thought that you were mine.
I just want to be the one who would share this dream.

[Chorus:]
All our past times should be forgotten.
All our past times should be erased.
I don't care how much it costs;
'Cause I don't count the loss
As long as I can see your face again.

You don't have to tell me when you're leaving,
If it's half past one, if it's maybe four.

It makes no difference where you think you're going,
But please remember not to slam the door.

[Chorus]

Yes, I don't care how much it costs;
You know I don't count the loss
As long as I can see your face again.

Among Clapton's Best | Reviewer: Ronald D. Morley | 3/3/2006

This song deserves a place next to "Layla" among the songs of lost or unrequited love that Eric Clapton has written and performed. The version from the live session on the "Just One Night" album is the definitive version. Clapton's playing is so emotion laden that it's hard to listen to this song and not think about one's own lost loves. The song's melodic phrasing is soft, but with a edge that speaks of the anquish of a man who knows that, somewhere in the past, he lost his chance at true love: the type of love that makes one weak in the knees at the sight of one's lover; that makes one physically ill when one realizes that the relationship is no longer what it was and one's life is the poorer for it.

The swapping of the lead that Clapton plays with Albert Lee is at least as good as anything found on "Layla and Other Love Songs". In some ways it outshines the dual lead that Clapton played with Duane Allman on the Layla album. This is most likely due to the years of study and work that both Clapton and Lee have put into their craft, to say nothing of the many problems and tragedies that have occurred in Eric Clapton's life in the years since "Layla". One gets the impression that both men were in tune not only with each other, but also with their Muse the night the song was recorded. Each weaves his melodie around and through that of the other with no sense of the strain or competition that is sometimes just below the surface in Layla. It's truly a shame that Duane Allman can't come back and play this song with Eric, it is certain that another epic collaboration would be the result. Since such a meeting will never happen we'll have to take the Clapton/Lee version and simply rejoice that this track was laid down.
