Bah Bah Bah (Words Cannot)

Ian still doesn't like this song. I do.

Rain coming down, in the afternoon
Started out like every day, waking up to our favourite tune
You grabbed me by the waist, as if there was no doubt
But I remembered what you said last night, and these words came out

I went: bah bah bah...

Blonde hair with a soft face, tears in your eyes
I should've known it was leading this way, you never seemed to try
But somehow you caught me by surprise, and I started to shake
You whispered softly in my ear that this whole thing seemed fake

You looked at me... just waiting, but I turned away
My head started pounding, searching for the right things to say
You pulled me back into your arms, I tried to hold it back
But you kissed me on the lips, and you got me to crack

I was walking... to your house
We started talking... all about
How you wish things hadn't ended that night
How you wish you and I had been a little more right

I got up, didn't know what to do with you still in my bed
Photographs ran through my mind thinking back to all you said
I should have made you leave last night, instead of caving in
Can't have it both ways, my dear, we both can't win

You looked at me... and I just asked you to leave
This wasn't right for you, no, this wasn't right for me
You tried to say that you're the one for me, but you're just acting the part
And I'm afraid of all these ghosts that you left inside my heart

It beat: bah bah bah...

I was walking... to your house
We started talking... all about
How you wish things hadn't ended that night
How you wish you and I had been a little more right
