  • Take all of your wasted honor
    Every little past frustration
    Take all of your so-called problems,
    Better put 'em in quotations

    Say what you need to say

    Say what you need to say

    Say what you need to say

    Say what you need to say

    Say what you need to say

    Say what you need to say

    Say what you need to say

    Say what you need to say

    Walking like a one man army
    Fighting with the shadows in your head
    Living out the same old moment
    Knowing you'd be better off instead,
    If you could only

    Say what you need to say

    Say what you need to say

    Say what you need to say

    Say what you need to say

    Say what you need to say

    Say what you need to say

    Say what you need to say

    Say what you need to say

    Have no fear for giving in
    Have no fear for giving over
    You'd better know that in the end
    Its better to say too much
    Then never say what you need to say again

    Even if your hands are shaking
    And your faith is broken
    Even as the eyes are closing
    Do it with a heart wide open

    Say what you need to say, say what you need to say
    Say what you need to say, say what you need to say
    Say what you need to say, say what you need to say
    Say what you need to say, say what you need to say
    Say what you need to say, say what you need to say
    Say what you need to say, say what you need to say
    Say what you need to say, say what you need to say
    Say what you need to say, say what you need to say
    Say what you need to say, say what you need to say
    Say what you need to say, say what you need to say
    Say what you need to say, say what you need to say
    Say what you need to say, say what you need to say Writer/s: JOHN MAYER

  • Seighart from Ho Chi Minh, Viet Nam"The song earned Mayer another Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, his fourth win on the category"
  • Rahul from Chennai, Indiajohn mayer songs are addicting lolz
  • Cody from Vernon, NjYou, the company, post this: "In the US, this song was used in a series of commercials for Hallmark promoting the 99-cent greetings."
  • Cody from Vernon, NjThey recently used it in a Hallmark commercial. Love the song!
  • Emily from Around Chicago, IlYou know, I've never seen the movie, so i can't say anything about it, but I love the song because to me, it always portrays a way of coming out of your shell and making the best out of life. (but i will admit after hearing it on the radio 10 times a day, it DID get a little irritating)
  • Brittni from Mobile, Almy goodness larry,he was just trying to keep the focus on the movie,and not take away from it.
  • Kayleigh from Boulder, CoI love this song because it talks about how you never know when the end will be (like with both morgan freeman and jack nicholson's characters in the movie) and that you have to "say what you need to" before its too late and you have to live with the regret of not being able to tell someone what you want to for the rest of your life.
  • Larry from Lubbock, TxThis song has got to be one of the most boring songs ever written. One phrase is repeated over 23 times. Thank heaven there is a button which changes the channel, as I use it every time I hear this song begin.
