Whenever you go, then I'll be waiting
Whenever the loneliness you're hating
Whenever you say you wish you never left me
I say I told you so
I told you so

I used to think it mattered
How hard it was to cry
Crying's just a reflex now to you
Instead of trying to heal the scars
And the potholes in your life
Put a steel plate over them and that'll do

And as I waited by the bathroom door
You're writing on the bathroom floor
Waiting for an answer that only I can give to you

Whenever you go, then I'll be waiting
Whenever the loneliness you're hating
Whenever you say you wish you never left me
I say I told you so
I told you so
Whenever you go, then I'll be waiting
Whenever the loneliness you're hating
Whenever you say you're always gonna love me
I say I told you so
I told you so

The sun comes up and the blinds go down
To hide you from the light
The light inside your eyes that wants to shine
All of the Sunday morning reruns seem ridiculous like you
Sleeping everyday at different times

You can run but you can't hide from me
I know who you used to be
And that's the person that I want to let me come inside

Whenever you go, then I'll be waiting
Whenever the loneliness you're hating
Whenever you say you wish you never left me
I say I told you so
I told you so
Whenever you go, then I'll be waiting
Whenever the loneliness you're hating
Whenever you say you're always gonna love me
I say I told you so
I told you so

Don't shut the door, don't shut me out
Don't make this be the last time that I see your hands
Cause I want them to hold me
And I want you to show me
That this will be our only place
Without your face there's just no...

Whenever you go, then I'll be waiting
Whenever the loneliness you're hating
Whenever you say you wish you never left me
I say I told you so
I told you so
Whenever you go, then I'll be waiting
Whenever the loneliness you're hating
Whenever you say you're always gonna love me
I say I told you so
I told you so

Whenever you go, then I'll be waiting
Whenever the loneliness you're hating
Whenever you say you wish you never left me
I say I told you so
I told you so

I say I told you so
I told you so
I say I told you so
I told you so

    General CommentI love this song :)

    I think it's about a girl who left a guy and she wants him back and now he's saying "I told you so"

    that's just my guess, I could be really wrong
    anyway, blg is amazing :)

    General Commenthm i have the BLG album and i haven`t heard this. but without hearing this and just reading the lyrics i`d have to say this is about a girl who clearly does not want to face her problems and deal with them and would rather just block them out. "Instead of trying to heal the scars
    And the potholes in your life
    Put a steel plate over them and that'll do"
    says it all.

    on the same note he also is saying "you left me and want me back and i told you so"

    General CommentIts about a girl who dumped a guy (i think she was running from her feelings or she was afraid that he would hurt her) and she's really depressed. The guy is willing to take her back whenever she wants to come back to him, like he knew she would.

    General Commentyes the meaning is pretty obvious. a girl dumped this guy, and he still likes her, but when she wants him back, then he's just gonna go like "i told you so".

    General CommentI think he lost this girl to drugs.. it sounds to me like they're saying 'your body on the bathroom floor' not 'writing', then they say 'crying's just a reflex now to u' (a common characteristic of users) and 'i kno who u used to be' and 'when the sun comes up the blinds go down' and 'sleeping every day at different times'.. sounds like he lost her to drugs..
