DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY

Marlena Fontenot / Mary Gauthier

I met him at a bar right away I knew
He didn’t want a girlfriend he had important things to do
I fell for him, worked my way into into his dream
I was 24 how could I know what that would mean?

I signed up for this
I shoulda’ known there would be pain
I volunteered I really can’t complain
Words fly by every single day
But in the end I don’t know what to say

Our life is small, there’s not much to explain
Friends try to talk, but our conversations strained
So I fix myself, find ways to carry on
Tell myself I won’t be lonely long

I signed up for this
I shoulda’ known there would be pain
I volunteered I really can’t complain
Words fly by every single day
But in the end I don’t know what to say

When he gets up in the morning, I’m at the end of my day
It’s an unwritten rule don’t worry them when they’re away
So we talk about the kids, money and the holidays
But in the end we don’t know what to say

We signed up for this
We shoulda’ known there would be pain
We volunteered don’t as us to explain
Words fly by every single day
But in the end we don’t know what to say
In the end we don’t know what to say
