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

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


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
