lyrics

If you ask what did it, I'd have to say that afternoon in May.
The sun was setting, I walked alone into the dying day.
And even as I found what had inspired me to come,
I worried about love and swore to try and get me some.

Maybe that's what did it. I came back and I was right about the change.
We hooked up, I slowed down. I was happy but I still felt kind of strange.
Sometimes it's a joy, sometimes a pebble in my shoe.
It's gonna be a hard day and there's nothing I can do.

That did it, that did it.
Love's under my pillow now.
I fall a little, go back to sleep and it's still there.

If you ask what did it, I'd also say the time that I was scared.
You were right, that's nothing, but my eyes are wide and now I know what's there.
I'm writing you a letter from my castle in the rain.
Water, water everywhere and nothing to explain.

That did it, that did it.
Love's under my pillow now.
I read a little, go back to sleep and it's still there.
No matter what happens, if I go away from you,
that did it, that did it, there's nothing I can do.

Deep darkness pressing on me; one second later I'm all covered in light,
covered in life.

If you ask what did it, I'd have to say I just ran out of space.
"I love you, I love you," I wrote up and down the margin of this place.
