I Thought I Was Over You

I Thought I Was Over You

written by: Paul Anthony Obey



Despite odds of failure,
The World intervene,
And all our bad behaviour,
Would lift our love unseen,

Thinking I’d lost you,
Now I’m riding cloud nine,
Looking down from skies so blue,
Forever to be mine,

No more interference,
Heartfelt tales of woe,
No vague incoherence,
As misunderstandings go,

Second chance for a lifetime,
Blessed such are the few,
Find the words that add rhythm,
Looks like we made it through.



Homage and re-imagination of the popular Homage and re-imagination of the popular Barry Manilow song ‘Looks like we made it’.

The author, Paul Anthony Obey, born in 1970, is working class, brought up in a working class family and has raised a working class family. Married to a proud New Zealander, Nicola, they live in the North West of England and share 4 children; Ryan, Hayley, Bethany and Seth, one of each from both.

Paul has worked within the Social Housing environment for all his adult life in one guise or another, but has recently decided to write full time to share a view and hopefully inspire reaction in others to take another look at life, beyond the confines of self, question the generally accepted truth and make the World a better place for everyone. One step at a time!

My work is dedicated to all of those who believe in what I am trying to do and to some of those who don’t yet get it.
