Crash Test Dummies - The Day We Never Met Lyrics




I thought of you and made believe
Until I made you real
You played with me
You stayed with me
And knew just what I'd feel

The lips I never kissed
Are lips I can't forget
The dress you never wore
On the day we never met
The name I never whispered
As it echoed in my mind
The man I never was
The sweet thing that's not mine

I drink to you and toast your name
A name that I don't know
I think of you and see a face
A face that never shows

The lips I never kissed
Are lips I can't forget
The dress you never wore
On the day we never met
The name I never whispered
As it echoed in my mind
The man I never was
The sweet thing that's not mine

The lights are out, the moon is up
I'm calling out my plea
But all I hear is my own voice
Echo back to me

The lips I never kissed
Are lips I can't forget
The dress you never wore
On the day we never met
The name I never whispered
As it echoed in my mind
The man I never was
The sweet thing that's not mine

  13. aerial wheel

    this is ridiculous. classic crash test dummies. thumbs

  14. PurpleMind Arcana

    Conveys loneliness & obsession with such poignancy; some of us have been there.  It echoes my own past, times when I felt cheated of & desperate for one of the most precious things life can offer one.  The video is pure comedy-drama, if you've seen it.  I can't condone voyeurism, but I can imagine the feelings of hopelessness & despair they must suffer.

    iliv4disc77

    Very well said.

  25. Maestre Tim

    A song for the serially-monogamous, fearfully hopeful, oft betrayed, endlessly disappointed modern man who lies awake alone at night, staring at the ceiling and imagining HER, the elusive True Woman who is so much a dream as to be a nightmare. . . Why don't more people write music like this? Where are the talented artists?

    Steve Thompson

    Being drowned out by 'artists' taking a lot of Xanax and mumbling over computer generated audio...
