Underwood, Carrie - What Can I Say Lyrics

Piercing words, eyes are red
Watched your tail lights in the rain
Empty heart filled with regret
I know we were both to blame

And I'm not sorry that it's over
But for the way we let it end
So I said all I had to say
In letters that I threw away

And you should know, please believe me
I've picked up the phone a thousand times
And tried to dial your number
But it's been so long, it's never easy
It's like trying to spin the world the other way
What can I say?

How did it come to this?
I think about you all the time
It's no excuse, but i wish
That I never made you cry

I'm not sorry that it's over
But for the way we let it end
I couldn't find the words to say

And you should know, please believe me
I've picked up the phone a thousand times
And tried to dial your number
But it's been so long, it's never easy
It's like trying to spin the world the other way
So what can I say? What can I say?
What can I say? What can I say?

I hate to think all you had of me
(I said all I had to say)
Is a memory I left you
The space between what was meant to be
(In letters that I threw away)
And the mess that it turned into

And you should know, please believe me
I've picked up the phone a thousand times
And tried to dial your number
But it's been so long, it's never easy
It's like trying to spin the world the other way

It's like trying to spin the world the other way
What can I say?

What can I say?

What can I say?

    this song reminds me of my ex husband Douglas D. i still cry over him and the hurt of him leaving. But I've let go and our memories are fading. I'll always have love for him. But I have to love myself now more.

  16. Erin santilli

    I'll always love you Josh Craigo ❤️

  17. Sophie Effy Vazquez

    To me this song is about possible reconciliation after a long time apart. Like the conversation you have explaining the no contact. The actual reconciliation to happen in another song. Just my interpretation of it.

  18. Veronica Brady

    this song reminds me of my first boyfriend, we were together for a year and it was an amazing, or I thought it was, he was emotionally abusive the whole time, and when I finally broke up with him he killed himself. it's still hard and he has been dead for almost a year now. I'm sorry I just had to get that off my chest. I miss him everyday

  19. Della Vojtik

    This makes me feel so heartbroken

  20. Mahra Alawadhi

    reminds me of my first girl it was a Bonnie and Clyde kinda of scyme I'm 17 when I was 14 she ran away from a group home to be with me and she played this song the day after I came home from jail and left me crazy because the things I did for her now she's gone outta my life and crazy because I would still do anything for her and this song makes me think of her and she dosnt understand I love you

    jenny lomeli

    Nate Van Slyke

    Monilee Brumley I'll let you know... I was 5 when I realized I had feelings for this one girl I'll be 25 next month and I still have feelings for her. She's engaged so I'm trying very hard to move on and find someone but my God is it a challenge!

    usually when people sing low pitch then high pitch then back to low pitch, they sound bad. Carrie Underwood proved us wrong.

  66. Haley Yejerla

    thanks :) I needed to hear that :) I have been trying but a lot of people hate me because of rumors between me and her, but my actual friend told me that it's her lost because she is missing on a great person and that cheered me up but once I look at her idk all those strong feelings fade away :/ just pray for me or just wish me luck, because its hard especially for me.......I know she isn't a true friend but idk for some reason she has a special part in my heart but I will keep my head up

  67. Shera Starr

    Thumbs up if your listening to this in 2013!!:)

  68. emma metzler

    So True

  69. Emrys Hale

    BAM! Listening to it in 2013!!! lol

  70. Kristen Seibel

    I have been where you are... I know that it is hard, but you guys were friends, you shared memories and laughs, you guys probably shared tears too. But don't think that tears are a bad thing, they are part of the healing process. Something that I have learned is, you don't actually loose friends, you just learn who your real ones are :) There is a whole world out there waiting for you, be open to experiencing and finding true friends who will be there for you na matter what. ~K

  71. ranieldeguzman

    i really love this song!

  72. Haley Yejerla

    D: I mean my best friend wanted me to get over it but but :( I can never forget her she was such a good friend but I mean she did end our friendship so I guess she isn't worth my tears right? :(

  73. RedRidingHood411
