Rachel Wammack - Something People Say Lyrics




I heard a symphony when he started talking
First sight, time stop, kinda thing
The moment he walked in
Told my momma "we're in love" she said "you're too young to feel that way"
But that's just something people say

That truck we rode around in
Has lost some of its polish
We watch leaves fall three times
And I went off to college
He said "I'll call you every day nothing 'bout us is gonna change"
But that's just something people say

Maybe we meant it
And maybe we didn't
Maybe our words are just umbrellas for the rain
I didn't think I'd ever see the day
That "I love you" would turn into
Just something people say

My tear-filled can't take back
Wish I never met you
It all fell out so fast
As a foolish response to
His we ain't breaking up we're just taking a little break
'Cause that just something people say

Maybe we meant it
And maybe we didn't
Maybe our words are just umbrellas for the rain
I didn't think I'd ever see the day
That "I love you" would turn into
Just something people say

If I saw you out
Somewhere downtown
Would I use "good to see you" as an umbrella for the rain
I didn't think I'd ever see the day
That "I love you" would turn into
Just something people say
Something people say

  28. James Hyatt

    Great👍

  29. Angela Prosinski

    I heard this song being introduced on The Highway, and the commentary was "everyone was partying and having fun, and by the end of the song the whole street/place was SILENT because she just ripped everyone's heart out real quick"...Then they played it and I had no doubt that she captured EVERYONE's attention. I purchased this song (and everything else iTunes had to offer before this song was even over), while I was driving. Now I am sharing it with everyone I know, because it's just AMAZING. Your voice, the lyrics, the STORY, and the great way you play with vocals within the music is original, beautiful, and heartbreaking with TRUTH. Absolutely outstanding!
