Something Changed by Pulp

Song Title: Something Changed
Artist: Pulp
Album: Different Class
Year: 1995

Why I never skip it?
Is this the greatest love song of all time? Almost certainly not. However, it is a very underrated one. It tells the story of all the things that could have happened to prevent Jarvis meeting up with the girl of his dreams, and as he agonises over all of this, the girl in question simply says “stop asking questions that don’t matter anyway”. Women, eh?

Favourite Lyric:
Why did you touch my hand and softly say
Stop asking questions that don’t matter anyway
Just give us a kiss to celebrate here today

Lyrics:
I wrote the song two hours before we met
I didn’t know your name or what you looked like yet
Oh, I could have stayed at home and gone to bed

I could have gone to see a film instead
You might have changed your mind and seen your friends
Life could have been very different but then

Something changed

Do you believe that there’s someone up above?
And does He have a timetable directing acts of love?
Why did I write this song on that one day?

Why did you touch my hand and softly say
Stop asking questions that don’t matter anyway
Just give us a kiss to celebrate here today

Something changed

Oh, when we woke up that morning we had no way of knowing
That in a matter of hours we’d change the way, we were going
Where would I be now

Where would I be now if we’d never met?
Would I be singing this song to someone else instead?
I don’t know but like you said

Something changed
