What Was
Steve Perry Lyrics


What Was
What was I to do?
Never should have called me up.
What was I to do?
Haven't we both had enough?
I still think of you,
Even though we're miles apart.
What was I to do?
The fire is still there,
My heart is too scared to fall again.
It's a little too late because,
We'll never change what was.
There you go again,
Girl, it's never going to end.
It's something we can't have,
We must let go.
I want so much to say,
I love you more today.
The hardest thing I've ever had to say,
Goodbye.
What was I to do?
Never should have called me up.
What was I to do?
Haven't we both had enough?
Oh, the fire is still there,
My heart is too scared to fall again.
It's a little too late because,
We'll never change what was.
It's a little too late because,
We'll never change what was.

I want so much to say
I love you more today
The hardest thing
I've ever had to say goodbye

What was I to do
You should've never called me up

Haven't we both had enough?

Oh, the fire is still there
My heart is too scared to fall again
It's a little too late because
We'll never change what was
It's a little too late because
We'll never change what was

I've been a journey fan for what seems like forever! I'm 59 and still think he's the best singer of all time! He still has it and needs to share it with all of us!

Beatriz Brooks

Oh i saw agree. He has gotten me through some tough times I'm 59 also.

Laurie Havens

I think the reason Steve Perry sticks w/us decades later is not just the passion & authenticity, but it's how HAUNTING his voice is. A class unto himself.

Robert Blue

@Laurie Havens
Haunting would not be a word I would choose to describe Steve Perry's vocals but rather he reaches out and touches the soul via passion, power and emotion all coming together to bring it all to fruition. That, to me, is Steve Perry's singing style.

No singer’s voice has ever touched my heart and soul the way Steve Perry’s VOICE has. Just love listening to him, even thought it makes me cry sometimes.

Laurie La Comb

YES!!! That’s how I’ve described him

Susan Jones

He makes my hair stand up!

I know of no other singer sings that sings with that much emotion. Steve Perry IS THE VOICE both for true Journey and solo and he ALWAYS will be!!!

Piper Tarin

Absolutely! I stopped listening to Journey, after Trial by Fire. They screwed up giving "Steve" an ultimatum! Instead, they (Schon,Cain and Herbie) should of "Supported him & waited. Blessings & Perry~On,
