lyrics

It seems my little world has gotten a little more confusing
Topsy-turvy upside down and twisted through and all around
You didn't tell me exactly why it is you decided to leave
Or if you did for some reason I just didn't hear the sound

And what do you do when your world changes in unexpected ways
And what do you do when you can't understand?

I thought we had our plans and expectations somewhat worked out
Had a sense of who we are and where we're going next
So it seems a little sudden now for you to say it's over
Without any sufficiently explanatory audio or text

And what do you do when your world changes in unexpected ways
And what do you do when you can't understand?
I feel a little lost and a lot confused by recent events
Something that matters fell out of my hands

So what can I say
Would it matter anyway
My mind's a mess
But that is no surprise I guess
What would you do
With this sudden switcheroo
Would you ever say
There could have been another way

There doesn't seem to be much sense in hanging on right now
The finality of your choice well it really hit me hard
So I gotta find my way to making up a new purpose in my life
Find a new direction so that I can start moving forward

And what do you do when your world changes in unexpected ways
And what do you do when you can't understand?
I guess I'll embrace this freedom that's been forced on me
Instead of standing here with empty hands
