I Told Ya So

I Told Ya So

 
INTRO
 
All I'm askin' is a moment of your time.
Just a drink and hidey ho.
You may say no--
But I'm thinkin' it's a go,
and you'll have to just forgive me
if I say, I told ya so.




VERSE 1
 
It seems like another lifetime;
a dream that I once dreamed.
I know it wasn't me and you,
but I swear it's how it seemed.


 

CHORUS A
 
Oh, the bedframe was in splinters,
just kindling for the winters shiverin' cold;
and the mattress was on fire,
combusted by desire--
for our love flowed like
a lake of melted snow,
and don't you know ...
I told ya so,
I told ya so.


 


INST. BREAK
 


VERSE 2

 
Now your touch is just as cold
as the empty fire place,
and I can't believe that only
flames were all that burned so bold.
 


 
CHORUS B
 
Yeah, the bedframe was in splinters,
just kindling for the winters shiverin' cold;
and the mattress was on fire,
combusted by desire.
For our love flowed like
a lake of melted snow.
I'm sure ya know--
I told ya so,
I told ya so.
 



CODA
 
Then the fire burned out,
and the love was gone.
Yeah, I know, I told ya so.
But why it didn't last,
I don't know.
Oh, baby, I don't know ...
I don't know.

Songs can come in many structures. It's difficult to judge on lyrics alone, but musicians look at lyrics all the time and make songs out of some pretty unconventional offerings. :))
