"A Few Words Too Many" as written by Desmond Child and Beverly A. Myers....
Wait a minute
What did you say?
Did I hear you say
There's no real reason left for you to stay?
Under your breath I hear your soft voice break
Can we still be friends?
I hear you talking but you're just not making sense
I've been hoping for a happy ending
Now I know that there won't be any

Just a few words too many
In my head
A few words too many
In this bed
A few words too many
Left unsaid
Oh, I wish that we were strangers
We could start again
Start again
All over

A broken shadow falls across your face
As you hesitate
Trying to think of all the things you need to say
Bare faced, the truth lies at my feet
As you turn away
Sometimes silence has a way of making peace
I've been hoping for a happy ending
Now I knew that there won't be any

Just a few words too many
In my head
A few words too many
In this bed
A few words too many
Left unsaid
Oh, I wish that we were strangers
We could start again
Start again
All over again

Staring at the ceiling
Wondering just what you're feeling
Was it me
Or was it you?
What's the difference?
If I knew
Maybe I wouldn't feel so empty
If I had heard a few words too many
In my head
A few words too many
In this bed
A few words too many
Left unsaid

Oh, I wish that we were strangers
We could start again
Start again
Start all over again
We could start again
We could start again

Round and round and round and round
In my head

Yeah
Wait a minute
What did you say?
Did I hear you say?

    General Commentwell first of all this song is pretty self explanitory. it's obviously about a break up. it's one of those songs that anyone who was dumped unexpectedly can relate to. those first words "wait a minute what did you say?" i was like YEAH! when i first heard it. the lyrics "Staring at the ceiling
    Wondering just what you're feeling
    Was it me
    Or was it you
    What's the difference
    If I knew"
    those are so true....it's yep i'm thinking that too. just a great song
