Who’s the Matter...

Rough track which is on my list of songs to produce soon. It's about a breakup with a serious girlfriend who starts acting distant and cold, and the male character is not sure why at first.

Who’s The Matter With You?

I saw you in the aisle today.
I wandered over just to say, “Hey.”
You smiled half-heartedly,
You didn’t have much to say.

You spoke too carefully,
So polite you were killing me,
The two of us acting like strangers...
Then it dawned on me.

Chorus 1
Who’s the matter with you?
Have you really found someone new?
I should have held you when I had my chance
Maybe this would still be my dance
I know you way too well.
Who’s the matter with you?

Been awhile since we went our ways.
It happened so fast,
It’s all just a haze,
The two of us acting like school kids.
Our love was ablaze.

You know I’ve tried to stay away.
My thoughts won’t always obey.
I wonder if your heart’s still healing,
Seems you’re more than okay.

Chorus 2
Who’s the matter with you?
Have you really found someone new?
I should have held you when I had my chance.
Maybe this would still be my dance.
I know you way too well,
Who’s the matter with you?

Bridge
I know we have to move on,
Stop hurting about the past.
What could have been?
What might have been?
It’s really pointless to ask
I know you way too well,
and I’m sadder than you.

Guitar Solo

I know it’s not my place.
I’ve got to give you your space.
Can’t bear the thought in my mind:
"Have I been replaced?"

Chorus 3
Who’s the matter with you?
Have you really found someone new?
I should have held you when I had my chance.
Maybe this would still be my dance.
I know you way too well,
Who’s the matter with you?

Who’s the matter with you?
Who’s the matter with you?
Who’s the matter with you?
Who’s the matter with you?
