Say Anything (Else)

  • And baby don't follow their lead
    'Cause you'll never know
    Just how the story ends, or how the story goes
    And you are so confused
    And baby it's just like you
    to say anything else

    Whenever you get this way
    Just getting up for the let down,
    Mmm here they come and they're here to stay
    Just getting up for the let down

    Oh I'm here to say that you're the star you want to be
    Just open up and look inside and you will see, yeah

    Someday you'll sing it out loud
    One day this will make you proud
    Whoa oh, "I know..."
    Whoa oh

    And baby don't follow their lead
    'cause you never know
    Just how the story ends, or how the story goes
    And you are so confused,
    And baby its just like you
    to say anything else

    It's time for you to understand
    Stop getting up for the let down
    Oh, who you want is not up to them
    Stop getting up for the let down

    And I'm here to say that you're the star you want to be
    Just open up and look inside, you will see

    Someday you'll sing it out loud
    One day this will make you proud
    Whoa oh, "I know..."
    Whoa oh

    Someday you'll sing it out loud
    One day this will make you proud
    Whoa oh, "I know..."
    Whoa oh

    So say what you want
    (You know I'm wasting all my time)
    Gotta mean it when you say what you want
    (You're only safe when you're alone)
    And everybody's on your mind
    Saying anything to get you by

    And so to get what you want
    (You know I'm wasting all my time)
    You gotta mean it
    (You're only safe when you're alone)
    And when you say what you want
    Your wasting everybody's time
    Your saying anything that gets you by

    It's not, not, not gonna get you,
    gonna get you by

    Some day you'll sing it out loud
    One day this will make you proud
    Whoa oh, "I know..."
    "I know..." is never good enough

    Someday you'll sing it out loud
    One day this will make you proud
    Whoa oh, "I know..."
    Whoa oh
    Whoa oh, "I Know..."
    "I know..." is never good enough Writer/s: JOSEPH PEPPER, KEVIN SANDERS, NICOLAS HUDSON, RYAN ROBERTS, WILLIAM PUGH
