"What's That You Say Little Girl" as written by and Stephen Fretwell....
You must have thought
hey what's going on,
I'm gonna stop what I'm doing
and clear up
the mess you've made
things like that just can't be saved
you put your faith in time
I'm all done
what a thing to have done

what's that you say little girl?
what's that you say about your world
falling through?
what could I do?

Five years go by
and you sit and wonder why
you didn't stick to your guns in the first place
'cause now he's here
he's made his intentions clear
you're going to have to do it all again
some kind of friend

So, what's that you say little girl?
what's that you say about your world
falling through?
what could I do?

You told me that he was your friend
and often he'd show you the bend
but you never thought you'd go round it

And ten years have past
and each one of them little years clashed
with the colour of your thoughts
most of the time
tell me it won't be the last time

So, what's that you say little girl?
what's that you say about your world
falling through?
Don't be so stupid little girl
you're never gonna change this world
there is no power in one
I'll tell you what I'll do
it's power two (??)

You must have thought
hey what's going on,
I'm gonna stop what I'm doing
and clear up
but you, your fucked up.

    General CommentI think this song refers to a girl who messed up their relationship and moved on..then later hers worlds falling through...but he cant do anything cos hes not with her and its her own fault "what could i do?" I then think that she messed up by maybe having an affair with someone she told him was friend? "You told me that he was your friend,
    And often he’d show you the bend. But you never thought you’d go round it" and so she tried to move on... but this "friend" has come back and is ruining her next relationship? " I’ll tell you what I’ll do,
    There’s power in two" he then was maybe thinking about helping her? or gettin back with her... or something along those lines so maybe shed get her act together... but then he decided not too or maybe she messed things up again" But you, you fucked up"

    General CommentThe one thing that confuses me is if Stephen is saying the girl left him and went with someone else (first stanza) or if he's saying the girl knew there were problems in her relationship, but she felt time would fix them. Then the years keep going by and the problems persist.

    "Five years go by and you sit and wonder why,
    You didn’t stick to your guns in the first place"

    The girl is wondering why she didn't leave when the problems first started.

    His girl left him and thought there was something better out there that she'd find with time. She obviously doesn't and her world is sort of crumbling, but Stephen can't help her now.
