  • Say it loud, say it loud now
    Say something, say something, say something, say something
    Say it loud, say it loud now

    I learned a thing or two from my mama
    Oh yeah-yeah-yeah
    She believed in God and good karma (yeah-yeah-yeah)
    She said, "But we can make a change, yeah, we got to try
    To leave a better world on the day that we die
    Or at least we can go down fighting"
    Oh yeah-yeah-yeah

    So here I go
    I'm waking up to the power of words and the weight of love
    And yes, I know words ain't enough
    But when the silence becomes so dangerous
    We gotta say something, say something, say something, say something
    Say it loud, say it loud now
    Say something, say something, say something, say something
    Say it loud, say it loud now

    I'm bitin' my time, bitin' my tongue
    Waitin' for the perfect moment but it never comes
    When I get close, I close up
    Intimacy's so hard for me and I get stuck
    But I don't wanna be like my father was
    Scared to rock the boat, never speaking up
    I wanna live my truths wide open
    Oh yeah-yeah-yeah

    So here I go
    I'm waking up to the power of words and the weight of love
    And yes, I know words ain't enough
    But when the silence becomes so dangerous
    We gotta say something, say something, say something, say something
    Say it loud, say it loud now
    Say something, say something, say something, say something
    Say it loud, say it loud now

    We're all running out of time
    I've got to let go of my pride, oh
    'Cause someday I won't be around
    I wanna leave my heart sung out loud

    So here I go
    I'm waking up to the power of words and the weight of love
    And yes, I know words ain't enough
    But when the silence becomes so dangerous
    We gotta say something, say something, say something, say something
    Say it loud, say it loud now
    Say something, say something, say something, say something
    Say it loud, say it loud now
    Say something, say something, say something, say something
    Say it loud, say it loud now
    Say something, say something, say something, say something
    Say it loud, say it loud now Writer/s: Brandyn Burnette, Celine Svanback, Jeppe Bilsby, Keith Urban, Lindy Robbins, Mich Hansen, Scott Quinn
