lyrics

Your freckles are a constellation on your cheek,
Your green eyes have saltwater underneath,
You’re an ocean; a tide tugging at my feet,
And I’m not fighting.

You’re short and sweet, and to the point when you wanna be,
Sometimes you leave me hanging,
You keep words to yourself ‘cause sometimes they’re just hard to find,
I think you should say ‘em this time.
I think you should say ‘em this time.

So say it, say it, say it.
Say it, say it, say it.
Say it, say it, just say it.
Say it. I think you should say it.

Your words, your lips, your shores may be far away,
But I’ve kept a few with me, I’ve wrapped up my yesterdays,
And when it’s cold or dark I take them out to light my face,
I wish that I had stayed.
I wish that I had stayed.

Did you tell me to take your hand? Did you tell me to take it far?
Do you want me to make up my mind and forget about her?
Your words are strings ringing with hurt in them,
Your voice is a violin.

And I don’t know how I love you with all I’ve got behind me,
And I don’t know why I want you, but I want to.
I want to.

So say it, say it, say it.
Say it, say it, say it.
Oh just say it, say it, say it,
Just say it.
I think you should say it.
