What Did My Lover Say? (It Always Had To Go This Way)
by Wolf Parade



What did my lover say
When she was driving with you?
I could not see her face
From my new bed.

I don't think I should be sorry
For things I do in dreams.
Just like the tumbling birds come tumbling down.

I got a sandcastle heart
Made out of fine black sand.
Sometimes it turns into glass
When shit gets hot.

I wonder if all the beaches,
In all your holiday towns,
Will turn to giant shining earrings against the cheek of the sea
When finally this supernova goes down.

Just like my lover said,

See,
It always had to go this way.
It always had to go this way.
It always had to go this way.
It always had to go this way.

I sleep all night with the light on,
And dream about the sun.
Maybe because of the light,
Maybe because of the sun.

I got a friend who's a genius
Nobody listens to him.
I got some friends that got famous,
La la lala la la lala.

I don't think I should say sorry
For things I do in dreams.
Some people live like they're falling,
Some people die in their sleep.

It always had to go this way.
It always had to go this way.
It always had to go this way.
It always had to go this way.
