"Say Something Loving" as written by and Oliver David Sim Romy Anna Madley Croft....
Before it slips away

Say something loving
I just don't remember the thrill of affection
I just don't remember
Say something loving
I need a reminder, the feeling's escaped me

I went looking for it
Could have been anyone's kiss
Throwing my arms at no one
When I gave up, I found love

The thought flows through my mind
And it's growing all the time
I do myself a disservice
To feel this weak, to be this nervous

You say something loving
It's so overwhelming, the thrill of affection
Feels so unfamiliar
You say something loving
Without hesitation it hits me, hits me
It feels so unfamiliar

Before it slips away

Your touch stays on my skin
I feel it start sinking in
Here come my insecurities
I almost expect you to leave

Were you really looking for me?
Try your best to reassure me
I wasn't patient to meet you
Am I too needy, am I too eager?

I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
I don't know what this is, but it doesn't feel wrong
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
I don't know what this is, but it doesn't feel wrong

Did you hear me say it?
Say it
Did you hear me say?

I say something loving
I can't hold it inside, the thrill of affection
Is only getting stronger
I say something loving
All my hesitations are fading, fading
I feel it taking over

Before it slips away
Don't let it slip away
Before it slips away
Don't let it slip away

    My InterpretationIt has been suggested that this song is about a couple going through a rough period in their relationship, and hoping to rekindle it.

    However, my personal interpretation is slightly different. For me it resonates with growing older, and how those hormones and emotions can start to slip away.

    "Say something loving
    I just don't remember the thrill of affection
    I just don't remember
    Say something loving
    I need a reminder, the feeling's escaped me"

    But just about when you're about to give up on finding true love, you meet someone that lights that spark again.

    " I went looking for it
    Could have been anyone's kiss
    Throwing my arms at no one
    When I gave up, I found love"

    You're afraid of messing it up, you really want it to work out this time, it makes you nervous:

    "The thought flows through my mind
    And it's growing all the time
    I do myself a disservice
    To feel this weak, to be this nervous
    ...
    Here come my insecurities
    I almost expect you to leave
    ...
    Were you really looking for me?
    Try your best to reassure me
    I wasn't patient to meet you
    Am I too needy, am I too eager?"

    And then finally, you take the big leap:
    "I say something loving
    I can't hold it inside, the thrill of affection
    Is only getting stronger
    I say something loving
    All my hesitations are fading, fading
    I feel it taking over"

    And then it's all about keeping it going, and not letting this chance slip away.

    Just my 2 cents, such a beautiful song. Great music video too!
