about

words by James McCann
music by James McCann and Joshua Brumley

lyrics

Did you mean what you said
When you asked how I was doing?
Cause if not, it's okay to just drop by and say "hey,"
But you told a lie straight to my face
Now I'm walking away

So say what you mean
Mean what you say
I don't want your stupid promise,
I want your guarantee
And this heart is on the search for some truth
And it looks like I won't be finding it in you
So say what you mean
Mean what you say

Are you sincere
about your promises?
Cause I would rather hear your guarantee
And that way I'll know when my heart is broken
Me and pain won't be the only thing I see

So say what you mean
Mean what you say
I don't want your stupid promise,
I want your guarantee
And this heart is on the search for some truth
And it looks like I won't be finding it in you
So say what you mean
Mean what you say

Girl to be, or not to be
sincere or insincere
If you don't stand for something, then you'll fall for anything
Well I was hoping you'd fall for me

So say what you mean
Mean what you say
I don't want your stupid promise,
I want your guarantee
And this heart is on the search for some truth
And it looks like I won't be finding it in you
So say what you mean
Mean what you say
