"Say You Do" as written by and Jaleel Bunton Gerard A Smith....
Prettiest world I know
Stole away all the show
You are so easy to love
You are so hard to let go

Prettiest world I know
Loveliest one I know
You were the first to come
We were the last to go

Prettiest world I know
You are so hard to let go
You were the dream of my heart
We were the last ones to know

We were the last ones to know
We were the last ones to know

    General CommentIll be the first to say that the lyrics may not be 100%, the "burn the indian sky the sea" bit is said so fast its hard to understand what he says if you don't have beforehand knowledge. So that said its boaut 96% correct.

    The song is pretty self explanatory IMO, its above him wanting a girl to love him.

    General CommentI'm almost positive that it is not "young" but "yon" in both of the instances at the beginning of the song, and not just because he is speaking quickly, but rather because they intended it that way.

    General CommentI want to say that its something at least close to
    "burn the empty sky I see, I blot out every memory" or
    "burn the empty sky and sea, I blot out every memory"

    General Commenti love this song. it's definitely not their most complex, but that's probably why i like it so much. it's just so natural. the whole thing just saunters on at such a lazy and bumbling pace. the first line is so trite and simple, but the way tunde delivers it is so haunting.

    General Comment"the first line is so trite and simple, but the way tunde delivers it is so haunting."

    The first lines are supposed to be trite. They're an example of the "dumb shit" this girl made true.

    General Commenti'm surprised no one mentioned the mild sampling of nina simone. i think that's one of the strong points of the song.

    agreed, pretty self-explanatory; however, one could delve further in saying that his love is unrequited not just professed.
