    I thought I ...

    Hello,

    Can anybody tell me what she sings in 2:25? I cannot get it and some lyrics say, "I thought I had all the dedicate", some, "I thought IŽd ask but then again."

    OMD, SheŽs leaving, song lyrics, 1981

    Thank you very much.

    He doesn't enunciate very clearly. I don't know what he's singing, though it could be "I thought I heard/I'll be dead again."

    No, that one's not correct. It doesn't even make sense. He definitely says:

    I thought I heard, ah, but then again, the more we learn, the less we know

    I heard ah but then again too. Some of these lyrics sites are using software and can be inaccurate. All the dedicate strikes me as meaningless, even for a song lyric.
