"Say" as written by and Kim L. Owens....
I heard the news today
Billy's gone away
Left us all for good
No one understood

You only had to say
I would understand
You only had to say
Whatever come what may

I was feeling low
You called and you were too
We'd meet Saturday
It happened on Wednesday

You only had to say, it's sad
I would understand
You only had to say
Whatever come what may

I don't want you brave
A truce we made today
If you're feeling sad
On me you can depend

You only have to say, it's sad
I would understand
You only have to say, it's sad
Whatever come what may

You only had to say
I would understand
Don't be scared to say
Whatever come what may

You only have to say
You only have to say

    Song MeaningThis song is about Billy Mackenzie, lead singer of The Associates. Billy killed himself in 1997 and Siouxsie was supposed to meet with him a few days before it happened. Hence the line, "We'd meet Saturday; It happened on Wednesday."

    Very touching song and one of my favourites from Anima Animus.
