"It's a cold day for September" was all I thought to say,
When I saw you on the street the other day.
And has something changed between us?
All the talk we made was small.
But what do you say to someone
When they've heard you say it all?

It's an awkward conversation, in a most peculier way.
How did we get from saying "I love you" to "I'll see you 'round someday"?

It seemed like only days ago we had so much to say.
Did we take it all for granted? Did it all get thrown away?
"It calls for rain this afternoon", you finally replied.
And there was such a stuttering silence that i felt my mouth go dry.

We'll just talk about the weather, cause there's not much more to say.
How did we get from saying "I love you" to "I'll see you 'round someday"?
How did we get from saying "I love you" to "I'll see you 'round someday"?

Has all the ice been broken, all our surfaces been scratched?
Have all the words been spoken, have we finally met our match?
Cause it's an awkward conversation, in a most peculier way.
How did we get from saying "I love you" to "I'll see you 'round someday"?
How did we get from saying "I love you" to "I'll see you 'round someday"?
How did we get from saying "I love you" to "I'll see you 'round someday"?
