Music & Lyrics by Alex Goettel


How Did We Get Here?

Why can't I feel your love?
I never wanted to control you.
What am I not enough, why did you turn so cold?
I only wanna hold you.

When you're not by my side,
Do you know how much I want you?
Baby I must confide, I’ll do anything I’m told.
I only wanna hold you.

So how did we get here?
Didn't I tell you you're my only one?
Drowning in my tears,
Knowing soon I'll be the lonely one.

When you've been gone so long?
Do you ever start to miss me?
Baby you got it wrong, I’d never make you cry.
You can feel when you kiss me.

So how did we get here?
Didn’t I tell you you’re my only one?
Drowning in my tears,
Knowing soon I’ll be the lonely one.

How did we get here?
