Too afraid to close our eyes,
afraid that we might drift and lose track of the time,
the brilliant light flanks my blinds,
sends ghosts back to their graves and us back to life,

I'm sorry,
i'm sorry.

Over and over,
over and over (just say it like you mean it),
over and over,
over and over (just say it like you mean it).

The best is when you say the worst is over,
it's like saying we had luck with a three-leaf clover,
and you kept saying that over and over,
and I still catch you looking over your shoulder,
and it's okay, I know the only times you really loved me were when you weren't sober,
and that hurts, we all hurt, we all hurt,
and I kept saying that...

Over and over,
over and over (just say it like you mean it),
over and over,
over and over (just say it like you mean it).

for the taste,
for the sight,
for the sound,
for the fight,
for the weak,
for the strong,
for the ?,
say it like, just say it like you mean it,
for the weight,
for the crush,
for the fear,
for the lush,
for the love,
for the hate,
for the touch,
just say it like,
i will wait up for you,
i will wait up for you,
i will wait up for you,
i will wait up for you,
over and over,
over and over (just say it like you mean it),
over and over,
over and over (just say it like you mean it)

Just say it like you mean it...

    General CommentYou serious? From an article from MTV

    "..."Say It Like You Mean It" is about his contempt for vacuous pop-punk bands..."

    I think it's funnier that he has such contempt for vacuous pop-punk bands like The Starting Line but TSL has never changed their sound. MBR has changed it 3 times now.

    General CommentBuildingMusic how do you kno that they changed it to make them more popular (if thats the point you were making)? maybe they changed because they matured as a band, and TSL havent.
