Carrie Underwood — 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
Before 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 tryin' 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 tryin' 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
And it's been so long
It's never easy
It's like tryin' to spin the world the other way
It's like tryin' to spin the world the other way
What can I say?
What can I say? (What can I say?)
