Found Out About You

about

Remember the Gin Blossoms? This is their best song, and one of my favorite songs ever and I had to cover it.

It was written by the band's co-founder and guitar player, Doug Hopkins, who suffered from depression and sadly took his own life after being kicked out of the band for alcohol issues—just as this song and "Hey Jealousy" were hitting the top of the charts.

For more about Doug's life and the Gin Blossoms—one of the most underrated bands of the '90s—read my in-depth blog post here:

As always, thanks for listening.

lyrics

All last summer in case you don't recall
I was yours and you were mine forget it all

Is there a line that I could write
that’s sad enough to make you cry
All the lines you wrote to me were lies

The months roll past the love that you struck dead
Did you love me? Only in my head

Things you said and did to me
Seemed to come so easily
The love I thought I'd won you give for free

Whispers at the bus stop
Well I heard about nights at the school yard
I found out about you
I found out about you

Rumors follow everywhere you go
And when you left and I was last to know

You're famous now and there's no doubt
In all the places you hang out
They know your name and they know what you're about

Whispers at the bus stop
I heard about nights out in the school yard
I found out about you
I found out about you

Street lights blink on through the car window
I get the time too often on AM radio

You know it's all I think about
I write your name drive past your house
Your boyfriend's over I watch your light go out

Whispers at the bus stop
I heard about nights out in the school yard
I found out about you
I found out about you

Whispers at the bus stop
I heard about nights out in the school yard
I found out about you
I found out about you
I found out about you
