Say It Again
griff Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You don't say how you feel when you're sober, baby
But when we're out and it's getting late
You tell me 'bout the troubles that haunt you lately
And the only thing that I can ever say

Is come closer, come closer
Oh, let me hold you now
I know that I'm no saviour, no
Yeah, I know that even if I was the wisest of them all
It don't matter, not at all
If you don't believe it so

How ever many times that you need to, baby
Just tell yourself it's gon' be okay
How ever many times that you need to hear it
Every single hour of the day

Oh yeah, we'll say it again and again and again
You know each time
That we say it again and again and again
It's gon' be fine
Say it until the devil's gone
Pray it until the devil runs
Oh, get it out of your head, of your head, of your head
And if you can't
Then just say it again, yeah

However hard it is to resist, baby
Yeah, you gotta know this thing, it won't last
And I'll remind you that the troubles that haunt you lately
Soon they'll just be memories in the past

So come closer, come closer
Oh, let me hold you now
I know that I'm no savior, no
Yeah, I know that even if I was the wisest of them all
It don't matter, not at all
If you don't believe it so

How ever many times that you need to, baby
Just tell yourself it's gon' be okay
How ever many times that you need to hear it
Every single hour of the day

Oh yeah, we'll say it again and again and again
You know each time
That we say it again and again and again
It's gon' be fine
Say it until the devil's gone
Pray it until the devil runs
Oh, get it out of your head, of your head, of your head
And if you can't (yeah)
Just say it again, yeah
I need you there, yeah

'Cause I know that even if I was the wisest of them all
It don't matter, not at all
If you don't believe it so

How ever many times that you need to, baby
Just tell yourself it's gon' be okay
How ever many times that you need to hear it
Every single hour of the day

Oh yeah, we'll say it again and again and again
You know each time
That we say it again and again and again
It's gon' be fine
Say it until the devil's gone
Pray it until the devil runs
Oh, get it out of your head, of your head, of your head




And if you can't
Then just say it again, yeah

Line by Line Meaning

You don't say how you feel when you're sober, baby
You don't express your true feelings when you are not under the influence of alcohol


But when we're out and it's getting late
However, when we are out and the night is getting darker


You tell me 'bout the troubles that haunt you lately
You share with me about the problems that have been constantly troubling you


And the only thing that I can ever say
In response, the only thing I can offer is


Is come closer, come closer
To move closer to me for comfort


Oh, let me hold you now
Allow me to embrace you


I know that I'm no saviour, no
I am aware of the fact that I can't fix your problems completely


Yeah, I know that even if I was the wisest of them all
Even if I were the smartest person in the world


It don't matter, not at all
It wouldn't make a difference, not in the slightest


If you don't believe it so
If you don't believe in what I say


How ever many times that you need to, baby
No matter how many times you need it


Just tell yourself it's gon' be okay
Remind yourself that everything will be alright


Every single hour of the day
All day, every day, any time you need to hear it


Oh yeah, we'll say it again and again and again
We'll say it repeatedly


You know each time
Each and every time


That we say it again and again and again
We repeat it over and over


It's gon' be fine
Things will turn out okay


Say it until the devil's gone
Keep repeating it until your troubles disappear


Pray it until the devil runs
Keep reminding yourself until your fears go away


Oh, get it out of your head, of your head, of your head
Get rid of these negative thoughts from your mind


And if you can't
And if you find it difficult to do so


Then just say it again, yeah
Just repeat it until you feel better


'Cause I know that even if I was the wisest of them all
I understand that even if I had all the knowledge in the world


It don't matter, not at all
It wouldn't make a difference, not at all


I need you there, yeah
But I need you to be present with me

Like why is she so underrated she needs the hype she deserves she is marvelous

@cynthiaarons9373

Probably because of her get up (clothes & accessories) - overdressed for the style of her songs? She is too good to be underrated.

@pachia914

Exactly, but hey she’s blessing our ears before anyone else comes and steals her away from us

@aggeyboii1753

@@cynthiaarons9373 I think her unique styling is a huge strength. I think it's just marketing. My guess is that she and her team are just taking it slow and focusing on building foundation, rather than blowing up.

@aggeyboii1753

I know but we should enjoy this special time when her music is "our little secret" as they say. 💜
