You Say Lyrics

I keep fighting voices in my mind that say I'm not enough
Every single lie that tells me I will never measure up
Am I more than just the sum of every high and every low
Remind me once again just who I am because I need to know
Ooh oh
You say...

    I believe this song implies that we sometimes feel we are weak at certain situations, our past experiences are weighing us down and making us feel our lives are shattered and can never be healed.God is telling us all chains are broken in this song, we are loved and we are healed all we need to do is believe HIM cos HE is LOVE.

    This song is a reminder about your identity. It’s a reminder that I am weak and he is strong. How do I change that? How do I bring that to my everyday life? This is the truth. I experience patterns of highs and than lows. After rough nights how do I come back to normal? Expectation leaves me questioning my identity. Where do I even fit in this world? I keep getting pulled in so many different directions. Fear, rejection and lies which I must overcome. I don’t measure up to everyone else and I will never be good enough. My own negative inner voices and past experiences are weighing me down which makes me feel weak and as if I’m living shattered that can’t be healed. God and others around me are saying that I’m strong and loved and that they truly believe in me but I can’t seem to believe in myself and have any confidence. I keep thinking that I’ll never be good enough. Where is my security and where do I belong? When I feel inadequate how is it that there’s always moments where I feel like god steps in and supersedes my inadequates. I base how I feel a lot of the time on my insecurities,fears and rejections but even in those times I have doubts on my mind where I think no this is the truth. People tell me I’m strong even though I think I’m weak and this is what keeps me going. At time I need a break from everything to let myself figure out why I’m feeling this way. When I finally start to believe in myself I begin to wonder what people will think of me and if I’ll be good enough. I experience the highs and lows patterns again and it becomes a lot and I do finally believe in myself with no doubts until the past comes back up and ruins me and I can’t do it, I can’t believe in myself and I’ll never be good enough for anyone. I had a few bad experiences where I messed up and I haven’t been able to forgive myself or move on from the past ever since. The voices in my mind say that I don’t want to listen to them and hear what they have to say about me. I’m not enough for this person and I fight the voices so that I don’t have to think about it. I’m not enough for them and never will be..

    It’s okay to feel lost in this world, when our humane imperfections catch up to us and we want to drown in them…the highs and lows ( good and bad days, mood swings, emotional stress, work or finance strain anythinggg)
    GOd is always constantly loving, being there always steady and ready to stretch a helping hand. Just as we are, he wants us and he’d make our ordinary extraordinary.

    All that matters is GOd.. he’s all that matters eventually . It’s in him we find our purpose, reason and everything.. he has everything from failure to victory to everything.. and regardless of how we feel, we believe that it’s what he thinks and say of us that really matters.

    It's a beautiful song, I interpret it differently, I think there r two sides in this song, one is related to God towards divine power, that always believe in God's love and sayings this believe gives us energy to live a life when we feel depressed and down, we must believe in him that he must uplift us. And other side of this song is the manly love, love of a woman and a man as a woman always want to be loved by her man she gain power by the sayings of her man, she believes her love, God make us in pairs and a woman always believes in the sayings of his man if he says that ur strong then she feel strong, if he says that ur week she think so she got energy by his words,so this song has a great impact

    The lyrics are NOT a true representation of the Word of God. The Bible says, when we are WEAK, HE is STRONG. It doesn't say, God says we are strong. This song is misleading people who are searching for God's truth and love. God forbid if I ever have to rely on my own strength because without Jesus I can't survive. For in Him we live and move and have our being(Acts 17:28). God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble(Psalm 46:1).

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    We fight a spiritual battle daily against Satan and the principalities of this world. Always wanting us to feel bad about ourselves, not worthy, and this battle is fought in our minds. This song is telling us to remember what the scriptures say over us. That God loves us no matter what. And because of the blood of Jesus our sins and imperfections are covered and we are whole in His Love and perfection- if only we believe❤️Loved this song the day it came out - I am singing it in worship service Sept 20

    I think that she is referring that she does not find in our society that we don't look at what god sees and that we only see what others want us to see. so if something is called "trendy" that's what we look for but what god sees is us in our fullest. He sees the perfectness inside of each and every one of us instead of our imperfections he wants to highlight are specialties. I think that in this song this is what she is notifying, like when she says "You say I am strong when I think I am weak" god is the "you" saying that she is strong when she says "I" that's really like society saying she is weak and they have convinced that into her. This is continued throughout the rest of the song.

    For me it's talking about where and how I fit in to the world. We base how we feel a lot of the time on our insecurities, our fears, and our rejections but even with those doubts in our minds it's like I have to think no, this is the truth. For example when it says in the song you say I'm strong when I think I am weak, you say I am loved when I can't feel a thing and when I don't belong you say I am yours.

    This reminds me of my role model. She always tells me that I am strong when I feel I am weak and helps me to keep going. I know that this song seems to be as though Lauren is talking about God, but I also think that it could be about a role model or anyone else really that has helped you through a tough time.

    I believe this song is connecting Laurens heart and feelings with God. Through all the thoughts going through her head and over-whelming actions happening around her. She's needing a break to realize who is she and why she's feeling this way.
