The Cure Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Oh
Hey
Oh

Say this is it
Don't say maybe
Don't say no
Say this is it
Don't say hold on
Don't say slow
Say this is it
Don't say next time
Don't say when
Say this is it
Don't say later
No, don't say then

Just say yes, do it now
Let yourself go
Just leap, don't look
Or you'll never know
If you love it
You might really love it
Oh, come on
Come on and love it

Yeah, this is it
Don't be cautious
Don't think twice
Yeah, this is it
Don't play it safe
Don't put on ice
Yeah, this is it
Don't chew it over
No, don't kick it around
This is it
Don't wait and see
Don't try to work it out

Just say yes, do it now
Let yourself go
Just leap, don't look
Or you'll never know
If you love it
You might really love it
If you love it
You might really love it

Oh, hey

Oh, don't tell us it could all go wrong
No, don't tell us it could all be a mess
So don't tell me it could all be a waste of time
Just say oui, si, sim, da, ja, yow, igen, kylla
Just say yes
Yes
