What I Say
Via Fiori Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Is this a joke cause it won't seem to end
Another lie that never seemed so clear
Is there a rhyme and a reason for all this
The jury's out so who's our cavalier
Is this the reason why
That we had our lives
All the people in our heads
But nobody wants to sing
Nobody wants to sing
What I say, you do
What I say, you do
What I say, you do it well
I need a light cause my cigarette burned out
I poured a drink cause the stress is higher now
I gotta know is it ever going to hurt
Another line that I'll soon be in for but I don't care anymore
Is this the reason why
That we had our lives
All the people in our heads
But nobody wants to sing
Nobody wants to sing
What I say, you do
What I say, you do
What I say, you do it well
What I say, you do
What I say, you do
What I say, you do it well
Is this the reason why
That we had our lives
All the people in our heads
But nobody wants to sing
Nobody wants to sing
What I say, you do
What I say, you do
What I say, you do it well
What I say, you do
What I say, you do
What I say, you do it well
No I can't anymore
No I can't anymore




No I can't anymore
No I can't, No I can't, No I can't
