  • Say whatever you have to say, I'll stand by you.
    Do whatever you have to do, to get it out and not become a reactionary
    To hurt the ones you love you know you never meant to but you do
    Oh yeah you do

    Be whoever you have to be, I won't judge you
    Sing whatever you have to sing to get it out and not become a recluse
    about your house, come out
    I know you never meant to but you do
    Oh but you do

    Still I need your sway, because you always pay for it
    And I, and I need your soul because you're always soulful
    And I and I need your heart, because you're always in the right places

    And take whatever you have to take, you know I love ya
    Come however you have to come, and get it out and get it out

    Take it out on me, take it out on me
    I'll give it you all, I give it you all,I give it
    I give you all I give it you all, yes I will give it you all

    'Cause I need your sway, because you always pay for it
    And I, and I need your soul because you're always soulful
    And I and I need your heart, because you're always in the right places

    Oh yes I will, I will give it you all

    Still I need your sway, because you always pay for it
    And I, and I need your soul because you're always soulful
    And I and I need that heart, because you're always in the right places. Writer/s: LUKE PRITCHARD
