Music Prompt #17: “100x” by Tegan and Sara #musichallenge #music #amwriting

Today’s Music Prompt Challenge is by a talented pair of sisters from the group Tegan and Sara. This is one of their more recent songs and it’s both catchy and speaks of lost love. The lyrics talks about mistakes in relationships and hanging on despite knowing you both need to separate for your own sakes. The song for this week by Tegan and Sara is called “100x”

100x by Tegan and Sara

*****

You’vebeen cazy thinking I was wrong

Like a fool holding on too long

Let it crumble, let the whole thing fall

You were someone I loved

Then you were no one at all

It was cruel of me to do what I did to you, did-did-did to you

It was wrong of me to hurt such a big part of you, part-part of you

I swear I tried to leave you

At least a hundred times a day

*****

I swear I tried to tell you

A thousand times, a different way

I need out, on my own, I don’t wanna live this way

I need out, on my own, I don’t wanna live this way

I swear I tried to tell you

At least a hundred times a day

You went silent watching as I packed

Rehearsed the words you hoped would get me back

Shout it out and let your whole world fall

I was someone you loved

Then I was no one at all

*****

It was cruel of me to do what I did to you, did-did-did to you

It was wrong of me to hurt such a big part of you, part-part of you

*****

I swear I tried to leave you

At least a hundred times a day

I swear I tried to tell you

A thousand times, a different way

I need out, on my own, I don’t wanna live this way

I need out, on my own, I don’t wanna live this way

I swear I tried to tell you

At least a hundred times a day

*****

Oh I told you, that I, I needed out

And I, I couldn’t stay

Couldn’t stay here one more day

Oh I told you, that I, I needed out

And I, I couldn’t say

Couldn’t tell you one more way

I swear I tried to leave you

At least a hundred times a day

*****

I swear I tried to tell you

A thousand times, a different way

I need out, on my own, I don’t wanna live this way

I need out, on my own, I don’t wanna live this way

I swear I tried to tell you

At least a hundred times a day
