This Mess (You Say) — Aya Peard Lyrics


OK, another one of those posts were I come across songs in my iTunes that I look for lyrics to, only to discover they’re not online, and go ahead and transcribe the darned thing myself. I came across this a few years back on a sampler CD I got at Target. You can listen to or download the song for free here.

I closed my eyes
Saw stars all around you.
How did I lose
You before I found you?
Once you said you
Loved some things about me.
Now you say you
Are better off without me.

Where did I go wrong?
It’s just a word you say.
A word is a fine gateway
To something I’ve never expressed:
A way to get out of this mess.

You say you have
Good reason to doubt me.
You say I have
Myself to blame.
You say you gave
Everything you had,
And you say I said
This is not enough.

Where did I go wrong?
It’s just a word you say.
A word is a fine gateway
To something I’ve never expressed:
A way to get out of this mess.

You say you saw
Open words together.
You say you were
Fooling yourself.
I spent my time
Dreaming those adventures.
You say, “Too late,
This is not enough.”

Where did I go wrong?
It’s just a word you say.
A word is a fine gateway.
To something I’ve never expressed:
A way to get out of this mess.

Where did I go wrong?
Where did I go wrong?

There’s a second, underlying vocal track:

This mess I made
I was afraid
I fucked it up
I am to blame
I made mistakes
Pushed you away
I am sorry
Can you hear me?
