"Something I Said" as written by and Douglas Hamilton Brown....
I'm so confused, I must be losing it, this can't be right
I never knew that you could choose to love someone
Then change your mind
So I just wonder why and was it something I said?

You tell me once, you tell me twice
You tell me three times more
Tell me everything I want to hear and nothing more
?Cause you know I am on your side no matter what you do

With every consequence it?s your defense on why it?s mine
And I could take it if I knew just why I waste my time with you
So I just have to find out

Was it something I said to you
And was it something we can't work through
And was it something I made you do
Or was that something you?

So let me ask you, I just have to now that you're not mine
Do you feel free, have what you need
Or do you still feel scared inside?
?Cause I am on the line and don't know what to do
No you know I am on the line so

Was it something I said to you
And was it something we can't work through
And was it something I made you do
Or was that something you?

Sometimes I'm bold and brash, and sometimes I'm prone to crash
And sometimes I say too much, and sometimes it?s not enough
But I?ll never hold you back from something you want so bad
Just tell me so I'm not sad, was it something I said?

Something I said to you
And was it something we can't work through
And was it something I made you do
Or was it something I said to you, you?
Was it something that we just can't work through?
Something, something, something you

    General Commenthaha Someone Like You comes on all the time at my job, Build A Bear.
    but legit, the best part of the song to me is:

    And sometimes I'm bold and brash
    And sometimes I'm prone to crash
    And sometimes I say too much
    And sometimes it's not enough
    But I'll never hold you back
    From something you want so bad

    General CommentThey both love each other but suddenly out of nowhere the girl changes her minds and claims she doesn't love him anymore. He knows she couldn't have possibly fallen out of love with him for no reason. So he wonders if it was something that he said wrong.
    He says that no matter what happens, he's on her side so whatever it is that he said wrong, he didn't mean it the way that she took it.
    It almost seems as if she really does still love him, but she keeps claiming that she doesn't. This seems to have happened more than once before and he's getting tired of it. He keeps asking himself why he wastes his time with her. But he knows deep down that he would do anything for her and all he really wants is to work things out between them.
    Halfway through the song, you can tell that she ends up leaving him. Although they arent together, he wants to know if she still loves him. He wants to know if she's happier now, or if she is worse without him.
    He knows that he often does things wrong. Either by saying too much or not saying enough. But he just wants to know why she ended it. He needs closure.

    General Commentthis songs pretty self explanitory; the singers trying to state that this girl said she loved him and than all of a sudden changed hermind. and he's wondering if it was his fault, something he said, something he made her do... or ECT. he's confused and he wants her back.

    General CommentAlthough it doesn't break down any new barriers, I think this song is #1. For once, i think the lyrics are better than the music behind it, and that is saying something for an Alt Rock track. Pretty straight forward, very relatable. I like the vocalists voice, think these guys got some real potential. Check out "Someone Like You," also by SafetySuit.

    General CommentI can relate to this song... my girlfriend for a year said she had fallen out of love with me for some reason and i had no idea why? so i just respected her decision and lived with it but the start of the song " i never knew you could choose to love someoe then change your mind" so i can so totally relate to that.
