What I Say
Off-Topic United Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

The party's on
At least it was a minute ago
You were playing your little game
I guess I didn't know
I'll bring all my friends over
And crack open some cold ones
And tell them all about the nightmare you put me through
Those guys make me know that I ain't lost
My heart was in your hands, you lost it
You lost it
I know you're gonna miss it
Cuz you'll call me up at night
My heart was in your hands, you lost it
You lost it
My worlds a better place
So why should I even try
When you hang me out to dry
I know my friends will be there for me
So we shouldn't make it right
(Don't make it right)
So why should I even try
I never would've thought that I
Could take all this for such a long time
The truth is, tough shit, that's what I had in mind
Just see the light
It's unbearable to look straight at it
How are you missing the point this much
I guess I'll never know
I wish I could just take this issue
And take it straight to someone who understands me
We'll sit in my backyard around the fire
Yeah that's where you'll find me
My heart was in your hands, you lost it
You lost it
I know you're gonna miss it
Cuz you'll call me up at night
My heart was in your hands, you lost it
You lost it
My worlds a better place
So why should I even try
When you hang me out to dry
I know my friends will be there for me
So we shouldn't make it right
(Don't make it right)
So why should I even try
I never would've thought that I
Could take all this for such a long time
The truth is, tough shit, that's what I had in mind
Don't make it right
My heart was in your hands, you lost it
You lost it
I know you're gonna miss it
Cuz you'll call me up at night
My heart was in your hands, you lost it
You lost it
My worlds a better place
So why should I even try
When you hang me out to dry
I know my friends will be there for me
So we shouldn't make it right
(Don't make it right)
So why should I even try
I never would've thought that I
Could take all this for such a long time
The truth is, tough shit, that's what I had in mind




The truth is, tough shit, that's what I had in mind
The truth is, tough shit, that's what I had in mind

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Off-Topic United's song "What I Say" depict a situation where the singer is reflecting on a past relationship that has caused them pain and heartbreak. The party mentioned at the beginning symbolizes the joy and happiness that used to exist in the relationship, as indicated by the line "The party's on, at least it was a minute ago." However, the singer realizes that their partner was playing a game with them, and they were unaware of the truth of the situation. This realization leads to a sense of betrayal and hurt.


As the song progresses, the singer decides to surround themselves with supportive friends who understand their pain and are there for them. They express anger and defiance towards their former partner, emphasizing that their heart was in their hands but was ultimately lost and disregarded. Despite the pain caused, the singer finds solace in the fact that their world is now a better place without the toxic relationship, questioning why they should even try to fix things or reconcile with their ex.


The repeated lines about the lost heart and the sense of betrayal reinforce the emotional turmoil experienced by the singer. They acknowledge that their ex-partner may eventually realize the mistake they made by losing them but seem resolute in moving forward without them. The mention of friends providing support and not making things right suggests a sense of empowerment and self-reliance in the face of adversity.


The phrase "The truth is, tough shit, that's what I had in mind" can be interpreted as the singer accepting the harsh reality of the relationship and coming to terms with the fact that they deserve better. The song concludes with a repeated emphasis on the tough circumstances faced and the decision to not make things right or go back to what was, indicating a strong resolve to prioritize their own well-being and happiness.


Line by Line Meaning

The party's on
The situation seemed upbeat and lively until recently


At least it was a minute ago
The positive atmosphere has quickly faded


You were playing your little game
You were being deceitful and manipulative


I guess I didn't know
I was unaware of your true intentions


I'll bring all my friends over
I'll seek support from those who truly care about me


And crack open some cold ones
And enjoy some drinks to unwind


And tell them all about the nightmare you put me through
And share the distressing experience you caused me


Those guys make me know that I ain't lost
My friends reassure me that I'm not alone


My heart was in your hands, you lost it
You mishandled my feelings and lost my trust


I know you're gonna miss it
I'm aware that you'll regret your actions


Cuz you'll call me up at night
Because you'll reach out to me seeking reconciliation


My worlds a better place
My life has improved without you in it


So why should I even try
So why should I bother making amends


When you hang me out to dry
When you leave me in a difficult situation


I know my friends will be there for me
I'm confident that my friends will support me


So we shouldn't make it right
So we shouldn't try to fix what's been broken


I never would've thought that I
I never expected that I


Could take all this for such a long time
Could endure this situation for so long


The truth is, tough shit, that's what I had in mind
In reality, tough luck, that was my plan all along


Just see the light
Just understand the reality of the situation


It's unbearable to look straight at it
Facing the truth is too painful


How are you missing the point this much
Why are you failing to comprehend the situation so greatly


I guess I'll never know
I suppose I'll never understand your actions


I wish I could just take this issue
I wish I could address this problem directly


And take it straight to someone who understands me
And discuss it with someone who truly gets me


We'll sit in my backyard around the fire
We'll have a heart-to-heart conversation outdoors


Yeah that's where you'll find me
That's where I'll be, ready to talk things out


Don't make it right
Let's not try to fix something that's irreparable

​@@trentgay3437walking 18 can be brutal (particularly on slopey courses), coming from someone 34 and in decent shape.

Not many 78 year olds can do it. That's what carts are for... lol

Joe on the other hand, from an objective stand point could not even take a swing without the serious possibility of dropping on the spot. Trump literally still competes (at a pretty high level in tournaments).

I'm not gonna speak on any other points, but on this very particular point. It's the biggest landslide you can possibly imagine, and that's a matter of absolute unequivocal fact.

This is no more abuse than two people agreeing to a boxing match is physical abuse.
