Moody Blues – Say What You Mean lyrics

Say what you mean
Mean what you say
Say what you mean
Mean what you say
Think about the words
That you're using
Speak for yourself
Say what's on your mind
Think about the life
That you're choosing
Whenever you need somebody
Whenever you're looking
For somebody who knows
When trouble won't leave you alone.

Say what you mean
Mean what you say
Look into the world of tomorrow
Say what you want
Want what is true
Check out of the room
Full of sorrow
I'm ready to take you with me
I'm ready to be the one
Who's there by your side
When you've just got
Nowhere to hide.

And oh,
The angels will walk with you
Whenever you need them
Yeah, the glory that comes with love
Yeah, yeah, yeah
And oh,
The treasure that waits for us
Whenever we need it
Now, I just can't hold it back
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

The work and the pain
The thunder and the rain
The word of the earth has been spoken
The bird on the wing
Free as the wind
Knowing that the spell
Has been broken
Now you can laugh with meaning
Now you can throw away
The cloak of disguise
As you turn your face
To the sky

The blue of the night
The secrets of the light
The touch of the hand
That can lead you
I known you recognize
The shiver of surprise
Then you realize
That he's seen you
Into the strange unknown of love
Standing before me
How your nakedness shows
Now I just can't leave you alone

Ah oh,
I'm ready to take you now
Whenever you want to go
Yeah, my heart is there for you
Yeah, yeah, yeah
And oh,
The glory that comes with love
For always and ever, now
Now you can feel me love
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Say what you mean, mean what you say
Tell me about the love that you're feeling
Say what you mean what you say
