Say What You Need To Say

Take all of your wasted honor,
Every little past frustration,
Take all of your so-called problems,
Better put them in quotations...

Say what you need to say.

Walking like a one man army,
Fighting with the shadows in your head.
Living out the same old moment,
Knowing you'd be better off instead
If you could only...

Say what you need to say.

Have no fear
For giving in,
Have no fear
For giving over.
You better know that in the end
It's better to say too much,
Then never to say what you need to say again.

Even if your hands are shaking,
And your faith is broken.

Even as the eyes are closing,
Do it with a heart wide open...

Say what you need to say.

SuddenlySuburban, these are lyrics from John Mayer :) Some editing for space by me, but full credit goes to Da Man, one of my favorite singer/songwriters of this generation. Listen to the song, you'll love it.
