Say Something

Lyrics

playSay something, I'm giving up on you
playI'll be the one if you want me to
playAnywhere I would've followed you
playSay something, I'm giving up on you

playAnd I... am feeling so small
playIt was over my head
playI know nothing at all
playAnd I... will stumble and fall
playI'm still learning to love
playJust starting to crawl

playSay something, I'm giving up on you
playI'm sorry that I couldn't get to you
playAnywhere I would've followed you
playSay something, I'm giving up on you

playAnd I... will swallow my pride
playYou're the one that I love
playAnd I'm saying goodbye

playSay something, I'm giving up on you
playAnd I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you
playAnd anywhere I would've followed you (Oh-Ooh)
playSay something, I'm giving up on you

playSay something, I'm giving up on you
playSay something...
