Something You Said

lyrics

I can't remember why I quit you,
For that matter why we started.
It was December, and 30 hit you.
I caught you off your heart, and

Now I sit on the bus and wonder
How and what and who you're doin'.
Of all the places to go in this town,
You had to go where I was goin'.

I don't believe in fate
But I hate to think that it's nothing.
So relieved when you turned into me and didn't turn away.
And now even though I can't face you,
At least I've got your face in my head
With something you said.

My house is not a home since you left it.
It's not worth the time for just me.
We were good but you needed someone to bless it.
I just needed you to trust me.

And now I tap on these keys and wait for
The tones that tell me that we're chattin'.
It doesn't matter if I'm in or outside.
We'll find a way to touch or get back in.

I don't believe in fate
But I hate to think that it's nothing.
So relieved when you turned into me and didn't turn away.
And now as I try to replace you,
Did someone take my place in your bed
With something he said?

I'm not sure why we cross paths
When we both know that we must crash.

I don't believe in fate
But I hate to think that it's nothing.
So relieved when you turned into me and didn't turn away.
And now as I try to erase you,
I hear the words you said in my head.
I wish I were dead.
Just something you said.
