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 let the tumbling birds come tumbling down.

I've 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 love said, say,
"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've got a friend who's a genius,
Nobody listens to him.
I've got some friends that got famous:
la la la la la.

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."
