Something Happens
written by John Hiatt

I get jumpy
Wanna step on the gas
Drive right out of
This place fast
She says, "Red light
I'll take those keys"
Out of my mind and
On my knees

[Chorus:]
Something happens
And I don't know why
I can't seem to get my future
Out of her eyes
Something happens
And never for sure
If I could name this sickness
I'd be cured
I'd be cured

She's long distance
And it's a grind
Always static
On that line
Tear the phone out
From the wall
But in my head I
Get that call

[Chorus]

She don't wanna talk
She don't wanna talk to me
She just wanna look
She just wanna look through me

It's a famine
Or it's a feast
Who's that beauty
Who's that beast
Threatening murder
Or happiness
And if I do it
Will I confess

[Chorus]
