The idea for this song came from conversations with a friend of mine who has been finding his job increasingly pressurized and unsatisfying and is contemplating early retirement.

thanks for listening

When You Know

When you know it’s time to reappraise just what you do
Each day the way that used to be so clear - no more
Slipped away, now obscure, which hidden door
As your mind-games trip you up
You stumble on not knowing where to go

Then you know it’s time to come to terms with who you are
Each day the light that used to shine so bright’s grown dim
Fading fast and you’re the last one to see
The game is up the time is right
To step aside and bid farewell now

When you know the time has come to step down from the plate
Don’t wait, there are one or two who’d like to see you fall
On your face lose the ball give up the race
Why hesitate when you know it’s true
Those sharks are circling around you

So now you know it’s time to disengage and free yourself
Your health’s worth so much more than you can earn my friend
I’m sure it’s true that job will be the death of you
Listen up - cut and run
It’s time to have yourself some fun – now

(Words and music by Phil Knight)

Born and bred in Liverpool and like most kids from that place got my first guitar as a young teenager (in the late 60s). I've been dabbling with a guitar or two ever since and couldn't imagine life without one. I've never had any musical training (pr... [see more]
