We drove for hours
and we talked the whole way
I'm so enamored with the
things that you say
You talk so sweetly
I can taste it on my tongue
You got me spinnin'
got me feeling
like I'm something special
But I'm not sure I really am
cause I choke on all my opportunities
to say things right
I'm gonna try it now

What I wanted to say
What I wanted to say was
What I wanted to say was

I love you so much
I love you so much
I love you so much
What I wanted to say was

We got to the city
and you put your arm around my arm
and held me close
I felt so close
and then I felt it slipping slowly
through my fingers
down my leg and to the floor
like a sudden skipping
Where the word, it gets away
When we need it there beside my hand
and on my lips

What I wanted to say was
What I wanted to say was
What I wanted to say was
What I wanted to say was

I love you so much
I love you so much
What I wanted to say was
I love you so much
I love you so much
I love you so much

    General CommentI cant believe this hasnt been commented on...in 2006 i saw dashboard play at Oneonta and Chris gave us a preview of this song...it floored me. I have been LOOKING for this song to come out since. when i heard it though, the lyrics were..."what i meant to say, what i meant to say was...what i meant to say was...i love you so much..."

    General Commenti wish there was a proper recording of this, because if there would; i think it would be my favourite dc song.. :(

    General CommentI absolutely adore this song. It's such a shame they never released a decent quality version of this.
