Lately Lyrics - Stevie Wonder



Review The Song (5)


Lately, I have had the strangest feeling
With no vivid reason here to find
Yet the thought of losing you's been hanging
'round my mind

Far more frequently you're wearing perfume
With you say no special place to go
But when I ask will you be coming back soon
You don't know, never know

Well, I'm a man of many wishes
Hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel my eyes won't let me hide
‘Cause they always start to cry
‘Cause this time could mean goodbye

Lately I've been staring in the mirror
Very slowly picking me apart
Trying to tell myself I have no reason
with your heart

Just the other night while you were sleeping
I vaguely heard you whisper someone's name
But when I ask you of the thoughts your keeping
You just say nothing's changed

Well, I'm a man of many wishes
I hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel my eyes won't let me hide
‘Cause they always start to cry
‘Cause this time could mean goodbye, goodbye

Oh, I'm a man of many wishes
I hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel my eyes won't let me hide
‘Cause they always start to cry
‘Cause this time could mean goodbye

Sung too many times | Reviewer: RevZ62 | 6/19/09

Before and after this song I have sung it too many times.
You get that feeling when it is time to go even you don't want too.

The line "Far more frequently you're wearing perfume With you say no special place to go"

As a sighted man watching someone dress and tell the lie, as one who's only clue is a sense of smell and a premonition.... that is painful.

I often sing " Lately I've been looking in the mirror trying to find what is on my mind."
But in a break up that is so true, not only what am I thinking but also feeling.

Lately.... who knows.



LOVE IS A HURTING THING | Reviewer: AVA CLEMONS | 12/23/08

I LOVE THIS SONG I LIKE THE WAY THAT STEVIE PUT IT IN WORDS AND ALSO THE WAY KC AND JO JO DID IT ....IT REMINDS ME OF A RELATIONSHIP I WAS IN AND FOUND MYSELF WITH A CHEATER ....AND I FELT EVERTHING IN THESE LYRICS ...EVERY SINGLE THING ...LOVE CAN BE A HURTING THING ...AND IT SURE MAKES ME APPRECIATE THE WONDERFUL MAN I HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH NOW.



Real meaning | Reviewer: Yong | 8/8/07

This song made me to know that if you have some problems with your a lovely person. I strongly recommand to you telling the truth to your sweety right now. Just not only is Stevie wonder, but also, as we know, we are guys of many wishes. So we always keep telling the lie, we only force our lovely person to go to cliff, end of relationship. Even if there are no beauty, we should find the real beauty between you and her/hm. Stevie, like you. you just made me to cry.



My Song For Life | Reviewer: Nobody Special | 2/23/07

I really love the song "lately" because it helps me to deal with emotional problems and just generally it is an amazing song. You should listen to it. It really helps me to relax and take life into perspective.



Lately by the Legend. | Reviewer: Anne | 9/12/06

Right now in this chapter of my life, I feel that lately captures exactly the situation I have found myself in with a certain someone. It expresses fully the doubts that I have about this person as i feel that he is seeing someone else. Yet, I am trying to stay dignified and composed in the face of it all even though my heart is breaking into a million pieces. And nobody unless you've ever had a broken heart can imagine how that feels. I sleep very restlessly, I can't eat, and when I do I feel like being sick. I have to stay proefessional at work, even though every waking moment I just want to cry.On top of it, I don't know when I am going to see him again so undoubtedly I am in agony. Constantly waiting for the phone to ring or for him to come on MSN or just something to let me know that he is thinking about me. Quite rightly too when Stevie said 'I am a man of many wishes, I hope my premonition misses' except in this case I'm a girl and if this is going nowhere I would just like it to end so this pain too can come to an end! Great song.
