Two parents in the heat of battle
One child's ear pressed to the door
And mom, she cries like a wounded dove
Shot down, by a man who could not love

She said that one day
I'd understand

What did you mean when you said that?
I'd like to know
What did you mean when you said that?
Guess some things are better left alone

Two lovers staring at the dead walls
One bed we thought we'd never have to make
And as she packed to say goodbye
I just had to ask her why

She said that one day
I'll understand

What did you mean when you said that?
I'd like to know
What did you mean when you said that?
Guess some things are better left, better left

La, da, da (Alone)
La, da, da
La, da, da
La, da, da

(solo)
What did you mean when you said that?
I'd like to know
What did you mean when you said that?
I guess some things are better left, better left
(La, la la la)

I'd like to know
I'd like to know
I'd like to know, know
Know, know, to know

Like to know
Like to know
Like to know
Ho, oh
No, yeah, yeah, yeah
