"Say Please" as written by and Conor Oberst....
Everyone grows old on the gold coast
It takes a lot of hope to grieve
Everyone gets dark and the worst part
Is the way those thoughts can please you
Personality like a split screen
See yourself down your knees

Hold out your hand
Hold out your hand, darling
Hold out your hand
Say please

Everyone gives up down on hard luck
On hope ain't enough it seems
Everyone gets lost in their own fog
Have to wonder on with lantern dreams

Say please, please
Just say something
Speak up, please
If its what you're looking for

Hold out your hand
Hold out your hand, darling
Hold out your hand
Say please
Say please

    General CommentRight.. So Conor only get a few songs like The Mystic Valley Band? I really don't like their music, but this song is growing on me.

    General CommentI just sorted through a number of reviews/articles on this song and they all say that Oberst and M.Ward are the main vocals throughout the song. I was surprised to hear M. Ward was even a lead vocal because I thought I mostly heard Oberst the whole song.

    General CommentYeah they sound sorta similar sometimes but it's definitely the two of them singing at different points

    General CommentIt's definitely M. Ward and Conor on lead (M. Ward starts off), and it's not Yim Yames, it's Jim James from My Morning Jacket, who it hate but supringly love in this band (except His Master's Voice - only song I'm not a fan of)

    General Commentok ok to set this straight already.. its Ward who sings first.. Conor ..James .. chorus..Ward and Conor again.. done!! btw no one said anything about the meaning of the song lol.. its really hard to think on this one.. great lyrics tho.. song i think is mainly about people being misguided or doing something wrong.. and just try to solve ther problems by speaking up.. ' saying please'.. eh best i can come up with lol

    General CommentI think that it is about simply asking for what you want. Ask and ye shall receive. Sometimes we just have to step out of our own way!
