Something To Be Said

Album: Virtues (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • Guitarist Will Nutter told The Alternative Press: "At some point, I think everyone has been misled one way or another. This song is about being in love, feeling like you're with the only person who understands you, but unfortunately the feelings aren't mutual. It's realizing that sometimes letting go of the people you love is best for the situation."
