Say It
Flume Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Feeling the song, party done, shadows walking home
Walking with our game on
You are my kind, classic mind and you look so fine, hmm

Loving the cold, smoke a roll
See your fingers shake
I'm getting through your heart break
Some kinda freak, sing for me, don't know what I need, hmm

Don't doubt me babe
You make me wanna change
Break my bed, don't make me wanna stay, I can't
Bite me babe, you make me love the pain
Break my bed, don't make me wanna stay
I can't

When you say it like that oh-oh, oh-oh
Got me falling right back oh-oh, oh-oh (hmm)
When you say it like that oh-oh, oh-oh
Let me fuck you right back oh-oh, oh-oh (hmm)

I'm getting the door, silent walk
Whose the first to speak?
Speak it like a real freak
Voice in my head, in my bed
Filled with you instead, hmm
Taking your time, work my mind and I play with you
I play pretend it's so true
Follow me down, listen 'round to the deep dark sound, hmm

Don't doubt me babe
You make me wanna change
Break my bed, don't make me wanna stay
I can't

Bite me babe, you make me love the pain
Break my bed, don't make me wanna stay
I can't

When you say it like that oh-oh, oh-oh
Got me falling right back oh-oh, oh-oh (hmm)
When you say it like that oh-oh, oh-oh
Let me fuck you right back oh-oh, oh-oh (hmm)

Oh-oh, oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh

Oh-oh, oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh
When you say it like that
Oh-oh, oh-oh

Don't doubt me babe
You make me wanna change
Break my bed, don't make me wanna stay
I can't
Bite me babe
You make me love the pain
Break my bed, don't make me wanna stay
I can't

When you say it like that oh-oh, oh-oh
Got me falling right back oh-oh, oh-oh (hmm)




When you say it like that oh-oh, oh-oh
Let me fuck you right back oh-oh, oh-oh (hmm)

Overall Meaning

The song “Say It” by Flume and featuring Tove Lo is about a couple who are enjoying themselves at a party when the night is over, and they head back to one of their homes. They’re walking with their game on, feeling the song that just ended, and shadows surround them as they walk home. The couple seems to have different personalities, with the girl being classic-minded and the guy being some kind of freak, not knowing what he wants. However, they seem to share a mutual attraction for each other, and they enjoy the pain caused by their love, which is highlighted in the lines “Bite me babe, you make me love the pain/Break my bed, don’t make me wanna stay, I can’t.”


The chorus of the song talks about how the girl says something that gets the boy right back, and he can’t resist her. He falls for her all over again and wants to be with her. The verses provide the mood of the song as they describe the couple’s physicality and the tension between them. These words are accented by the music, which is electronic and pulsating, providing a hypnotic backdrop to the song.
