Crowded House - She Called Up Lyrics




She called up
And gave me the news
It made me so sad, sad, sad
There was nothing I could do
She's too far away
And you had to leave
I can never repay you now
For what you gave to me

A whisper that can blow a chasm wide
It took us all
It took us all
Pushed apart the mountains and the tide
It took us all

She called up
And gave me the news
It made me so sad, sad, sad
There was nothing I could do
I was so lost
In delirious sleep
Wasn't prepared for that position
Yeah maybe I was naive

But truth is a mortal blow
You know all there is to know
The hurt that you held so close
There's something better now

And she called up
And gave me the news
It made me so sad, sad, sad
There was nothing I could do
She's too far away
And you had to leave
I can never repay you now
For what you gave to me

For what you gave to me
She called up
She called up
She called up
And gave me the news

    Why does this song remind me of another song with that part on 0:34?

    Atshika

    It’s exactly like pink & blue from the van jets

    Scared

    @Atshika Not the song I remember it from, but a beautiful song, thank you for sharing!

    Atshika

    @Scared you're welcome😅

    Not even 20k views, for such a good song, and not an unknown band either...

    Must be that it so totally sounds like an 80’s piece, that I'd never thought it be from 2007

  3. Andrew Humphries

    Just found this song.What a lovely thing.So infectious,will be singing it for weeks now.

    Do you know what it's about though? Absolutely heartbreaking.

    Hannah Rose

    It is about how Neil Finn found out about the death of his friend and former drummer for CH, Paul heater. A brilliant tribute.
