Say Anything (Else)

Songfacts®:

  • The message of this song: Don't get caught up in your friends, family or enemies and don't let them make decisions for you. Don't let acceptance get in the way of anything you want from life. Be you, define yourself, don't let anyone shape you into something you don't want to be. The singer is telling the girl to make her own decisions and that one day she will be happy. >>
