By the town where you said you'd still love me
By an ocean just seven miles wide
We could walk across that bridge
Watch the water flow under
Leave all our troubles behind
Well maybe you don't quite remember
Lying there on your living room floor
With your parents over head we went to sneak up into your bed
In the mornings I'd be sneaking out your door
I'd do anything at all to make you happy
Anything at all to see you smile
Well lord knows I tried
But didn't always do right
Take back every tear I made you cry
By the town where you said you'd still love me
By an ocean just seven miles wide
We could walk across that bridge
Watch the water flow under
Leave all our troubles behind
Ah yeah
Five years ago I was much older
Time comes and takes it all away
To have and to hold to death do us part
Leaves me with a thousand things to say
I said sometimes I don't quite remember
What I did to make you leave
With the moon up over head
I lie awake alone in my bed
Without you it's so hard to be me
By the town where you said you'd still love me
By an ocean just seven miles wide
We could walk across that bridge
Watch the water flow under
Leave all our troubles behind
By the town where you said you'd still love me
By an ocean just seven miles wide
We could walk across that bridge
Watch the water flow under
Leave all our troubles behind

    General Commentthis is a great song. he evidently is reflecting on an ex love that he's not ready to let go of, remindinig her when she said she'd always love him, or maybe reminding himself...

    General CommentI agreee, this really is a great song. It kind of sucks that after absolutely nine days sort of completely fell off the face of the earth. Like seriously no one knows any other songs by them, judging by the lack of comments. Anyway, I think this song is about him thinking about a girl he once loved who left him high and dry. I feel like he's singing this song years later, like he's totally over it, but he's still wondering what he possibly did wrong. The reason it's called the things we said is because it proves that words are only words, since she said she'd always love him and then walked away
