Say It

  • Lyrics
  • If I tell you what I really want
    You'd just say shut up
    You don't really wanna hear it, no
    I try to be resolute
    You reduce it down to cute
    I tell you you're a coward
    You say I'm a prostitute
    When the mascara's dry
    I know you've got something to hide

    Can't you just say it, say it, say it,
    Say it one time
    Speak your mind
    Ooooh say it, say it, say it
    I would show up as someone else
    What's it like when you're yourself

    I'd tell you what I want
    But I keep it kind of cryptic
    I'm a zoetrope cyber on the tip of a trip
    They tell you what you want
    Tell you what I need
    But I'd hate you if you miss it
    I'd like to take a stranger's face in my hands
    And kiss the taste of nowhere to hide
    Yeah the taste of nowhere to hide

    Oh, just say it, say it, say it, say it one time
    Speak your mind
    Ooh say it, say it, say it
    Here comes the breakdown
    It's a life where there's no one round

    Say it, say it, say it
    What's going on here
    I swear you'll disappear if you don't
    Say it, say it, say it
    Take it down now to the core
    Or speak no more

    You're just a cheap lout
    You're just an escape route
    But you know, you know, you know
    What makes you try again

    Say what you mean
    Say what you mean
    Say what you mean

    Say what you mean
    Say what you mean
    Say what you meanWriter/s: JENKINS STEPHAN DOUGLAS
