that’s what i say, it’s not what i mean lyrics – feist

here i am, hopeful again
i can’t say when
i wasn’t this way

don’t need to worry about me
that’s what i say
it’s not what i mean
that’s what i say
it’s not what i mean

here i am, swinging alone
a timeframe surrounds the pictures i hold
but they don’t hold up well
started to wonder if i fell in love with you at all
if i fell in love with you at all

and when will a time come
i could hear a sad love song, that doesn’t speak to me
and when will a time come
i could sing a nice love song, using thou and me

here i am, walking away
my head’s held high
what’s the use gettin’ down
because all that i wanted is here
i just kept the ground, close to my ears
i just kept the ground, close to my ears

and when will a time come
when will it come
ooh
