"Speak Up" as written by Evan Bogart and Ryan Tedder....
Speak up, your silence is killing me
I've had enough, baby speak up
Are you lovin' or hatin' me?
Cause I can never tell
I'll be the first to admit it
Been silent for a minute
Thinking like damn is he feeling me
We fell in love took a second
But now I'm always checking
Cause I never hear you say what you really think

Some days I feel it then I feel it's over
Some days were harder then some days were colder
When you open up, our love is alive
But now you're quiet and I'm dying inside

So baby speak up
Cause your silence is killing me
I've had enough, baby speak up
Are you lovin' or hatin' me
Cause I can never tell, I can never tell
Just let your heart say what you can't say (speak up)
Let your heart say what you won't say (speak up)
Don't let the silence tear us away
Cause I can never tell, I can never tell
If you don't speak up

I don't know where you've been
But nothing's making sense, I'm standing on this fence for you
And even when you're here, somehow you disappear
If I can read your mind, I'd know just what to do

Some days I feel it then I feel it's over
Some days were harder then some days were colder
When you open up, our love is alive
And now you're quiet and I'm dying inside

So baby speak up
Cause your silence is killing me
I've had enough, baby speak up
Are you lovin' or hatin' me
Cause I can never tell, I can never tell
Just let your heart say what you can't say (speak up)
Let your heart say what you won't say (speak up)
Don't let the silence tear us away
Cause I can never tell, I can never tell
Speak up

I'll be out the door before the sun comes up
Boy catch me if you can while I'm pumping that clutch
(Try) Try to be the one, (I) gave it all I got
(I'm) Giving you your last chance (if you don't speak up)
Say all the words that you never said, oh
Write all the letters that I never read, oh
Show me your words or the love is dead
Just want to hear it from you

First to admit it, been silent for a minute
Thinking like damn is he feeling me
We fell in love, took a second
But you about to wreck it,
Cause I never hear you say what you really mean

Baby speak up, cause your silence is killing me
(your silence is killin' me)
I've had enough, baby speak up
Are you lovin' or hatin' me
Cause I can never tell, I can never tell
Just let your heart say what you can't say (speak up)
Let your heart say what you won't say (speak up)
Don't let the silence tear us away
Cause I can never tell, I can never tell
Speak up
If you don't speak up
Open up your mouth cause baby I'm listenin'

    General Comment"Thinking like time isn't feeling me" is really "Thinking like damn is he feeling me"
    "Well I'm trying to neglect" is supposed to be "While I'm poppin that clutch"

    Song Meaningi can relate to this song i think its talking about how a girl really likes a guy and she wants him to speak his mind and tell her how he feels. She needs to know how he feels because she cant read his mind and make the relationship on her own. An the longer he doesnt tell her the more its making it harder for her to be in the relationship.

    Song MeaningShe wants him to speak and tell how he really feels. She doesnt know what to do but it kils her for not knowing how he feels.

    General CommentI completely relate to this song. It's like the you like a person and you're together so quick that you never really figured out how to understand each other's emotions and without communicating verbally she has a hard time figuring out if he still wants to be in the relationship.
