"You Say" as written by and Marti Dodson....
I've been calling and calling for you
But you answer and I shut my mouth
I've been searching and searching for you
But myself, I don't want to be found

You say, I am
You say, let go
You say, believe
But it's not that easy for me
You say, wait
You say, right now
Don't you know you're already one foot in the ground
You say

I've been wicked and wild and wrong
And I've wondered the price of my shame
I've been hiding my face for so long
It's a wonder that you know my name

You say, come home
You say, I'm here
You say, there's some things you just can't control
You say, let me
You say, believe
Why do you search for the answers you already know
You say

I am the way and the light and the truth
Don't be mislead by the flight of your youth
Have faith in the things you can't see to believe
What if you had faith in me

You say, rest here
This is your home
Don't you see you knew I was here all along
You say

    General CommentI do too. I don't really know what it means, except that it seems a little religious to whoever the speaker's praying to or whatever. Whoever it may be about, I think it's a love song.

    General Comment*I am the way and the light and the truth* this is the line that really confirms this is a song about God and Jesus. I love this song, it has gotten me through many rough days. As a Christian we pretend our lives are all together and wrapped in neat little packages with pretty little bows. But the truth is, we are just as messy as anyone else.

    I feel like this song does a great job of explaining this. I know no matter how far I go, God is there to welcome me back when I come to my senses...

    General Commenti think that this song is totally religious. i love singing it and want to add it to the songs we sing at church. i can't go all the time because of my mom's house/dad's house thing but i can't wait to let everyone there listen to it
