What I Say
The Blue Hour Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I'd say
You're the first one on my mind
In front of the line
In line

I'd say
Your blood is so sublime
My patience is divine
Divine

I think you should be listening closely
To what I say (And obey)
I think you should be listening closely
To what I say (And obey)

I'd say
You can run and you can hide
But I'll find you every time
In time

And I'd say
My bite will make you better
There'll be no regret here

I think you should be listening closely
To what I say (And obey)
I think you should be listening closely
To what I say (And obey)
Say, Say, Say, Say

I think you should be listening closely (I'll breathe you in, I'll drink you in)
To what I say (And obey)




I think you should be listening closely (I'll breathe you in, I'll drink you in)
To what I say (And obey) (I'll breathe you in)
