That Particular Time

This song is by Alanis Morissette and appears on the album Under Rug Swept (2002).

Original video
My foundation was rocked
My try 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 to 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
At that particular time

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 time
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
