I wanna forget the afternoon
I spent waiting by the phone
For your call to come through
I could’ve lived without the way it felt
When I heard you say the things
I couldn’t believe myself
You said you don’t feel the same
How could your feelings just change?

All the words you said, all the feelings that you had
It makes no sense, but I’ll try
to understand you Baby, how can you
let me go and throw it all away?
All the words you said, all the feelings that you had
It makes no sense, so tell me why you had to say
Goodbye

I remember the way we used to laugh
As we lay there on your bed
Time never moved so fast
There were so many times I could tell
I made you want you want so much more
Than you ever believed yourself
The thing that hurts me the most
Is how you could be so damn cold

All the words you said, all the feelings that you had
It makes no sense, but I’ll try
to understand you Baby, how can you
let me go and throw it all away?
All the words you said, all the feelings that you had
It makes no sense, so tell me why you had to say

Goodbye
If everything you said was a lie
Tell me how you gonna get by in life?
Thinking someday you won’t run out of time
Out of time

All the words you said, all the feelings that you had
It makes no sense, but I’ll try
to understand you Baby, how can you
let me go and throw it all away?
All the words you said, all the feelings that you had
It makes no sense, so tell me why you had to say
So tell me why you had to say
Goodbye

about

Matthew Alexa Halifax, Nova Scotia

Matthew Alexa’s, self-produced debut album Chasing Airplanes is firmly planted in today’s modern rock, but draws on elements of American country and blues. The album is authentic and organic, relying more on recorded guitars, bass, fiddle, string quartets, percussion and background vocals than programmed sounds. ... more
