How Many Times

2006

Lyrics

Drifting away from home
Waiting for you it's leading me nowhere
Try to hold on to times
To things that have been - It's taking me nowhere
Promises made to the full - I keep them to you
You know I'll do anything to win back your heart again

How many times can we say forever?
How many times can we fail the truth?
It's a matter of faith
So tell me how do I fake my heart?
'Cause babe it's a shame we're apart

Working like some kind of fool
It tore your apart - it's leading you nowhere
Let me be there for you
Your overstrained heart is taking you nowhere
Baby this just ain't no use - I cry out to you
Will you try to find me back in your heart again

How many times can we say forever?
How many times can we fail the truth?
It's a matter of faith
So tell me how do I fake my heart?
'Cause babe it's a shame we're apart

How many times can we say forever?
How many times can we fail the truth?
It's a matter of faith
Baby how do I lie to my heart?
'Cause babe it's a shame - it's such a shame
Babe it's a shame we're apart

How many times, how many times...
How many times, how many times...
How many times, how many times...
How many times, how many times...
How many times, how many times...
How many times, how many times...
How many times, how many times...

Robby talks about How Many Times

A typical AOR mid tempo song. With harmonies in the choirs Johan and I used to do on the first album. Ever since we started to sing harmonies together when we were kids, our voices combined make a special sound. They blend very well and over the years it’s still there.

And especially in these type of tracks (+One Of these Days, Now Or Never) I need him badly. With Noppy Ton from my old late 80’s band 1st Avenue on drums. Played live without a click track in the Fendalsound studio, recorded by Hans van Vondelen who mixed the ‘Believing Is Seeing ‘album.
