Say It Isn't So Lyrics

I just can’t believe
It was all a lie
No man in the moon
Just a big light in the sky
I hear Disneyland
Might lose Mickey Mouse
In some giant hostile corporate shake-up
Tell me it's a nightmare
Please wake me up
(Say it isn't so)
I found a book of matches
From someplace we've never been
How come you hang the phone up the minute I walk in
Last night I had this dream
That I was losing you
I woke up in a cold sweat shaking
Rescue me my heart is breaking

Chorus 1
Say it isn't so (tell me it's not true)
Say it isn't so (I believe in you)
Tell me it's a lie (I don't need no proof)
Say everything's alright (couldn't be, not you)
Say it isn't so

Superman don't fly
They did it all with strings
Elvis Presley died
They deep fried the king
Like some tacky cheesy bathing beauty
Dancing on the beach in a bad b-movie

Repeat chorus 1

Chorus 2
Say it isn't so (don't give up on me)
Say it isn't so (don't give up on you)
Get me through the night (we'll make it through)
Make everything alright (couldn't be, not you)
Say it isn't so..

Repeat chorus 1

Repeat chorus 2

This song reflects the horror of reality. When everything is travelling nicely a big spanner is thrown in. A cool song though

An error occured.

ditto to antmann. when everything seems to be so "perfect" and then the truth is revealed. where you get to that point when you can't play blind to it anymore. i can imagine myself saying these words to my ex..back then atleast. all you want to hear is that everyone else is lying and they love you so much. this song made me cry so many times

An error occured.

I think this whole song is about the break-up he refers to in the second half of the first verse. He starts off talking about childish illusions, then gets to the point, "How come you hang the phone up the minute I walk in?". The choruses sound personal as well, so I think he's reflecting that he always thought that he had a kind of immunity from receiving bad news that would really hurt him, but now realises he doesn't.

An error occured.

"Say it isn't so" movie soundtrack

My Opinion
An error occured.

Pretty much what the above said, but nobody really specified that it's about a girl that's cheating on the singer, and him trying to play blind to it (like the childhood naivety trying to play blind).
