"Say It Isn't So" as written by and Daryl Hall....
Say it
Oh
Say it isn't so
Say it
Oh
Say it isn't so.
Say it isn't so painful to tell me that you're dissatisfied.
The last time I asked you I really got a lame excuse
I know that you lied.
Now wicked things can happen
You see 'em goin' down in war

But when you play in a quiet way that bites it even more.
Say it, tell me what you want
Yeah
I'll do it
Baby
I promise right now.
Say it, who propped you up when you were stopped low motivation
Had you on the ground.
I know your first reaction you slide away
Hideaway
Goodbye

But if Theresa thought maybe
I can give out a thousand reasons
Why you have to.

Say it isn't so
It isn't so
I say it isn't so
Say it
I say it isn't so

Say it, we like to be the strangers at the party
Two rebels in a shell.
Say it, you like to move with the best of them
You know we move so well
Don't need someone to lean on
I know that there's an open door

But if I'm faced with bein' replaced I want you even more.
So baby
Say it isn't so
It isn't so
Oh
I say it isn't so
It isn't so

Oh
Say it isn't so
Say it
Say it isn't so
Say it
I say it isn't so

Why you gonna go
Do you have to say you want to go?
Oh
Oh
Baby
Say it isn't
Say it isn't
Say it isn't so
Say it

    General CommentAs I read the lyrics, I see a woman who has grown tired of the guy. This same guy was good to her, good for her and even though he was what she asked for, he was not what she really wanted. They have gotten into a steady groove and all is very nice if not completely satisfying. Then, one day she is reminded of her reality that she has settled and wants to leave. Whether she leaves is dependent on her willingness to walk away from this comfortable existence and how much she values her personal well being.
