"What Have I Said Now?"

[ from the album "Bizarro" (1989) ]

Lyrics

About what I said just before
You know, your clothes on the floor
I never meant to hurt you
I got carried away
I guess I've had a long day
Look, I'd sooner die than lose you
Over something like that
Oh please next time just shout back
And I didn't say that I hate you
I think sometimes you forget
And now look how we're upset
Oh let's talk about it later

Why can't I ever say what I mean?
Why can't I ever say what I mean? (ohh)

Oh no I don't know her name
And no, it's not just the same
I just thought she looked quite pretty
What do you want me to do
Smile at nobody but you?
Well if you're going to be that petty
I'm not being unfair
Okay I am, but who cares?
Well now at least we're talking
And what about all of those friends
And all those letters they send
They can't all be that boring

Why can't I ever say what I mean?
Why can't I ever say what I mean? (ohh)

Of course I take it all back
I never said that
And I think you know
I said I'm sorry, all right?
Look, will this carry on all night?
Because I think I'll go

I take it all back
I never said that
And I think you know
Sorry, all right?
Will this carry on all night?
I think I'll go
