How Did We Get from Saying 'i Love You'... - Great Big Sea

'It was a cold day for September',
was all I thought to say
When I saw you on the street the other day
Something's changed between us,
all the talk we made was small
What do you say to someone when they've heard you say it all?
It's an awkward conversation,
in a most peculiar way...

[Chorus x2]
How did we get from saying 'I love you'
to 'I'll see you around someday'

Seems like only days ago, we had so much to say
We'd take it all for granted,
then it all gets thrown away
'It calls for rain this afternoon', she finally replied
There was a stuttering silence,
that I felt my mouth go dry
So we'll talk about the weather,
cause there's not much else to say...

[Chorus x2]

Has all the ice been broken,
all our surfaces been scratched
Have all our words been broken,
have we finally met our match?

[Chorus x3]
