Say What You Want
 
Lyrics
VERSE
Living in a world with so many ways to talk
Coming at you from all around, from every direction
Everyone saying so much it's like running before you walk
If you aren't careful, you'll get hooked up with a very bad connection

VERSE
Most all this expression won't take you a very long way
Because so much of the time, it's either wrong or just something to say
When you are writing something to me for all the world to see
I carefully read everything you write, so don't say what I should not believe

CHORUS
Say what you want, but when you do
You might get back more than you expected to see
For instance, even in jest, if you say you love me
I just might, I just might respond in all caps that I love you, too

VERSE
What would you do then? Would you fall straight off that horse?
Then would you jump right back on, repeat what you said to me?
Or would there be a reversal of course, speaker's remorse?
You can say what you want, but expression is never free

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
How 'bout we go to dinner, leave the devices somewhere
Then we can have a conversation all the way to the morning air

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
So, go ahead, oh, say what you want

Description
Short Song Description:
With all the avenues for expression nowadays, there is ample expression. With that, comes the statement of some serious things not so seriously. He's in love with her and is letting her know that if she says she loves him -- on some social medium, for example -- he is going to take her literally.
Long Song Description:
With all the avenues for expression nowadays, there is ample expression. With that, comes the statement of some serious things not so seriously. He's in love with her and is letting her know that if she says she loves him -- on some social medium, for example -- he is going to take her literally. And he's letting her know that he might respond in kind -- and mean it.
Story Behind the Song:
No back story. Just pure craft.
