Annie Bethancourt - Say, Say, Say lyrics

I walk in the moonlight
down the street toward the corner market
It's only a block but feels so far away
As if I'll never return
I look at the faces of the people on the carton of milk,
give the man at the counter the rest of my change
Lord knows how hard he must work
I climb the stairs to my apartment
You're waiting at the door.
I can guess the words from your lips
it's not hard, I've heard them before

You say you will be different,
with repentance on your face,
and you ask me to stay.
You promise that this time
you'll change your aversion to change
you say things will be better now,
but I know your words are weak houses of straw
that your actions will soon blow away
With you it's always the same old 'say, say, say'
With you it's always the same old 'say, say, say'
But never 'Do'

You search my cupboards for coffee
though I don't drink it. I never did like
the taste on my tongue - so strong and bitter too.
Still you look for the drug as you fill the air up
with your words of how you know me better than anyone,
and I wonder if you really think you do.
It's like the time you tried to sing my favorite song
but the words kept coming out wrong.

You say you will be different,
with repentance on your face,
and you ask me to stay.
You promise that this time
you'll change your aversion to change
you say things will be better now,
but I know your words are weak houses of straw
that your actions will soon blow away
With you it's always the same old 'say, say, say'
With you it's always the same old 'say, say, say'
But never 'Do'

Oh boy, are you sure you want to do this game again?
You never win 'cause you never play
Truth be told it's getting old, and I'm tired anyway
Been beaten by your 'say say say'.

You say you will be different,
with repentance on your face,
and you ask me to stay.
You promise that this time
you'll change your aversion to change
you say things will be better now,
but I know your words are weak houses of straw
that your actions will soon blow away
With you it's always the same old 'say, say, say'
With you it's always the same old 'say, say, say'

I am so tired of your 'say, say, say'
You know I'm through with your 'say say say.'
