what can i say lyrics – brandi carlile

“what can i say”

look to the clock on the wall
hands hardly moving at all
i can’t stand the state that i’m in
sometimes it feels like the walls closing in

oh, lord, what can i say
i’m so sad since you went away
time, time, ticking on me
alone is the last place i wanted to be
lord, what can i say

try to burn my troubles away
drown my sorrow the same way
seems no matter how hard i try
feels like there’s something just missing inside

oh, lord, what can i say
i’m so sad since you went away
time, time, ticking on me
alone is the last place i wanted to be
lord, what can i say
oh, lord, what can i say

how many rules can i break
how many lies can i make
how many roads must i turn
to find me a place where the bridge hasn’t burned

oh, lord, what can i say
i’m so sad since you went away
time, time, ticking on me
alone is the last place i wanted to be
lord, what can i say
oh, lord, what can i say
