"Don't Say Oh Well" as written by Christian Zucconi, Hannah Hooper, Sean Gadd and Ryan Rabin....
One two one two three four

Yeah I step outta my little country
I traveled seasons, took a longboat
And now I find my self in a small town
It's so remote I couldn't trawl

So I kissed my mommy, oh on her sweet cheeks
And I told my dad I'm real glad that we're friends
Said to my brother I'll surely miss him
I'm coming back just don't know when

Waited enough to find the truth,
The pain, again then say oh well
Don't say oh well
Don't say oh well

And I told my band mates, they are my soul mates
And I hope we can understand
That this year has been a big one, yeah
We following what we don't plan

So do you got that sweet devotion
Oh will you follow your heart's plan
Oh why not jump in to that ocean
And run your fingers through your hair

Waited enough to find the truth,
The pain, again then say oh well
Don't say oh well
Don't say oh well
Don't say oh well

    Lyric CorrectionA couple of corrections which I think are right:

    "It's so remote I couldn't trawl" should be:
    "It's so remote I couldn't choke"

    "So I kissed my mommy, I wanna sweet cheeks" should be:
    "So I kissed my mommy, oh on her sweet cheeks"

    "Said to my brother I'll surely miss him" should be:
    "Said to my brother I shouldn't miss him"

    And I think the meaning of this song is that you shouldn't stay in a 'safe zone' all your life, but to get out and explore everything and to have no regrets.

    Song MeaningThe song is about how grouplove met while living in Europe. It's about both leaving for Europe, and returning home. I believe it does therefore encompass the themes expressed by eventidexc in the latter part of their comment.

    General CommentSo it's "choke" instead of "trawl", and the guy won't miss his brother? Not much of an improvement
    Why would you want to 'choke' and why would the remoteness of a town stop you doing so?
