How Did We Get From Saying I Love You
(Great Big Sea)

Click Here for tabs.

'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 you say 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,'
she finally replied.
There was such a stuttering silence
that I felt my mouth go dry.
So 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 our ice been broken,
all our surfaces been scratched?
Have all the words been broken,
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'?
How did we get from saying
'I love you' to 'I'll see you around someday'?
