how did we get from saying ‘i love you’… lyrics – great big sea

great big sea
miscellaneous
how did we get from i love you
how did we get from i love you
great big sea
(up)
“it’s a cold day for september”
was all i thought to say
when i saw you on the street the other day
i knew something changed between us
all the talk we made was small
but what do you say to someone
when they’ve heard it all
it’s an awkward conversation
in a most peculiar way
how did we get from saying “i love you”
to “i’ll see you around someday”
it seemed like only days ago
we had so much to say
did we take it all for granted
did it all get thrown away
“it calls for rain this afternoon” you finally replied
then there was a stuttering silence
that i felt my mouth go dry
we’ll talk about the weather
’cause there’s not much more to say
how did we get from saying “i love you”
to “i’ll see you around someday”
how did we get from saying “i love you”
to “i’ll see you around someday”
has all the ice been broken?
all our surfaces been scratched?
have all the words been spoken
have we finally met our match?
cause it’s an awkward conversation
in a most peculiar way
how did we get from saying “i love you”
to “i’ll see you around someday”
how did we get from saying “i love you”
to “i’ll see you around someday”
