Say It Right

Lyrics

playIn the day
playIn the night
playSay it right
playSay it all
playYou either got it
playOr you don't
playYou either stand or you fall

playWhen your will is broken
playWhen it slips from your hand
playWhen there's no time for joking
playThere's a hole in the plan

playOh you don't mean nothing at all to me
playNo you don't mean nothing at all to me
playBut you got what it takes to set me free
playOh you could mean everything to me

playI can't say
playthat I'm not lost and at fault
playI can't say
playthat I don't love the light and the dark
playI can't say
playThat I don't know that I am alive
playAnd all of what I feel I could show
playYou tonight you tonight

playOh you don't mean nothing at all to me
playNo you don't mean nothing at all to me
playBut you got what it takes to set me free
playOh you could mean everything to me

playFrom my hands I could give you
playSomething that I made
playFrom my mouth I could sing you
playAnother brick that I laid
playFrom my body I could show you
playA place God knows
playYou should know the space is holy
playDo you really wanna go?

playThree, four

playYou don't mean nothing at all to me
playYou don't mean nothing at all to me

Play with the song, fill the gaps

meaningMeaning

Say It Right. I had no idea what a giant song it would become. The thing that still perplexes me about the song is that I still can't put into words what it's about. I think it's maybe about personal, visceral abandon. Throwing yourself into something without inhibitions.
