Did I slip? I know I stumbled
Did I trip? 'Cause I know I fell
All's I know is I'll wake up here in my clothes tomorrow
But oh, girl I wish I knew you well
But oh, girl I wish I knew you well
But I'm just sayin' hi, to your answering bell

Did I run? I thought I was walkin'
Through your inexhaustible gale
The names are changed but the constellations
Are still fallin'
Oh girl, if you could only tell
Oh girl, if you could only tell
But I'm just sayin' hi

Let your tears fall and touch my skin
Then your thunderclouds could rage and wail
I will collect them all for you in butterfly jars
And oh girl, I'll build your wishing well
Oh girl, I'll build your wishing well
But I'm just sayin' hi, to your answering bell

Did I sleep? 'Cause I musta been dreamin'
Did I weep? 'Cause I cried like hell
All's I want is your fortress of tears to crumble

And oh girl, I'd tear 'em down myself
And oh girl, the story's they could tell
But I'm just sayin' hi
