At Anytime (Peter O’Doherty) - A song about the vagaries, missteps and irregularities within personal relationships. How much you can fit into a day, got to be careful what you say, it’s a fine line between thinking too much and losing touch. The song tails out with a cacophony of birds competing for space in the Moreton Bay Fig Tree outside the window where I was recording an acoustic guitar. I hit the last chord and the birds just started up.

Lyrics

At Anytime
(Peter O’Doherty)
Spent all morning breaking up
 The rest of the day we were making up 
It takes some time 
It takes some time 
Keep everything in place I know we can Think of all the ways I know we can
 I know we can but it takes some time 
I know when you want to be somewhere else You sometimes want to see someone else 
Yes I know you do
 But we get tied up I don’t understand
 I feel you unraveling out of my hand 
Slip away
At anytime you say that things get rough
Is my need for you enough
I never drive so patiently
Never see what’s in front of me I don’t think about religion
 It’s an everyday superstition Just say what you mean
At anytime you say that things get rough Is my need for you enough 
I say some things I don’t mean 
I don’t mean to say
I say cos I mean to hurt you
 So we spent all morning breaking up
 The rest of the day we were making up 
It takes some time, it takes some time, takes
some time
 Just around about midnight
 As the moon slips off a cloud
 I get so tired from staying up
 When things get rough
Is my need for you enough
