"What Would I Say To You Now" as written by and James Christopher/burch Adkins....
Still sitting there with your legs crossed,
Not paying attention to me.
If we talk, just curious, would this end up like it always does?
All the wrong I've done.
All the wrong I'll do.
Keeps me from trying.
It keeps me quiet.
Throw out your arms to each side.
It's easier to let things go.
When we talk think what we say: there's questions then silence and
In silence we remain.
All the wrong I've done and all the wrong I'll do.
It keeps me from trying.
Keeps me from calling you.
Something I just found out.
Something you know by now.
Hope makes you so strong.
Strength keeps you alone and far away.

    General CommentI never heard this song b4, but the words sound exactly like something I'm going through right now. What cd is this on? I have Clarity and Bleed American, but it's not on those.

    General Commentfirst of all, the name of the song is "what i would say to you now" and it's originally off of the split 7" with another great band named Jejune but it's also on the Singles Cd.

    General Commentthe title is right. on 'the singles' it is 'what i would say to you now' but on the jejune split and the japanese version of either clarity or static prevails it is 'what would i say to you now'. it points this out at the website.

    General CommentThis song is great. I can relate to a lot of the words, and the feeling behind it. The words are very powerful, i'm sure many can relate to them.

    General CommentDude this song Rocks! It reminds me of my girl that I was friends with for 4 years, dated for 6 months and she decided she never wated to speak to me again. "All the wrong I've done, It's all the wrong I'll do keeps me from trying, it keeps me quiet."

    General Commentthis song is SOOOOOO good
    it means obviously that the his girlfriend doent pay attention or care about him, and the relationship is obviously over and not going anywhere fast. so he doesnt even bother with her anymore, and lets the relationship deteriorate on its own
