[Verse 1]
Boy just give me it straight, don't overcomplicate
The words you're struggling to free, just let 'em speak to me

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Cause I know what you want and I know what you need
And I swear this time I'll behave
Now I know what I want but you're so hard to read
Why'd you make me translate?

[Chorus]
Say what you mean
Spell it out for me, what you mean
Say what you mean
Tell me what you want from me
Oh, oh, say what you need
Oh, oh, say what you need

[Verse 2]
Boy I made a mistake but I'm here to compensate
So take a hold of my hand, tell me you understand

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Cause I know what you want and I know what you need
And I won't let you get away
Now I know what I want but you're so hard to read
Why'd you make me translate?

[Chorus]
Say what you mean
Spell it out for me, what you mean
Say what you mean
Tell me what you want from me
Oh, oh, say what you need
Oh, oh, say what you need

[Bridge]
My love, my love is here for you to take
It's written in my face
Why's it so hard for you to say?
My love, my love is here for you to take
It's written in my face
Why's it so hard for you to say?

[Chorus]
Say what you mean
Spell it out for me, what you mean
Say what you mean
Tell me what you want from me
Say what you mean
Spell it out for me, what you mean
Say what you mean
Tell me what you want from me
