That Particular Time

Album: Under Rug Swept (2002)
  • My foundation was rocked my tried and true way to deal was to vanish
    My departures were old I stood in the room shaking in my boots
    At that particular time love had challenged me to stay
    At that particular moment I knew not run away again
    That particular month I was ready to investigate with you
    At that particular time

    We thought a break would be good for four months we sat and vacillated
    We thought a small time apart would clear up the doubts that were abounding
    At that particular time love encouraged me to wait
    At that particular moment it helped me to be patient
    That particular month we needed time to marinate in what "us" meant

    I've always wanted for you what you've wanted for yourself
    And yet I wanted to save us high water or hell
    And I kept on ignoring the ambivalence you felt
    And in the meantime I lost myself
    In the meantime I lost myself
    I'm sorry I lost myself, I am

    You knew you needed more time time spent alone with no distraction
    You felt you needed to fly solo and high to define what you wanted
    At that particular love encouraged me to leave
    At that particular moment I knew staying with you meant deserting me
    That particular month was harder than you'd believe but I still left
    At that particular time Writer/s: Alanis Morissette
