“Say”
Take all of your wasted honor
Every little past frustration
Take all of your so-called problems,
Better put ’em in quotations

Say what you need to say [x8]

Walking like a one man army
Fighting with the shadows in your head
Living out the same old moment
Knowing you’d be better off instead,
If you could only . . .

Say what you need to say [x8]

Have no fear for giving in
Have no fear for giving over
You’d better know that in the end
Its better to say too much
Then never say what you need to say again

Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open

Say what you need to say [x24]

 

These words are so true; I can’t stress it enough. If you feel like something is important enough to say, then say it.  If you don’t, you will live with regret and that’s never okay. Of course, timing is everything–I’m a big believer in that. And also, it’s not what you say, but how you say it. Being articulate is super important and it will get you much further in life. The more courteous you are to people, the more courteous they will be to you. Also, some things are better left unsaid. You have to use your judgment.

Now, you may be thinking that there are so many rules. How can I say what I want to say while thinking about all of these other considerations as well?

If it’s important enough to you, then it should be important enough to the person listening. Don’t ever think that what you want to say is stupid or invalid, that’s something we’ve all learned since kindergarten. No question or comment is stupid. The only stupidity is not saying what you want to say. It’s essential to express yourself.
