Say When Lyrics

Play "Say When"
on Amazon Music

I see you there,
don't know where you come from
Unaware of a stare from someone
Don't Appear to care
that I saw you, and I want you

What's your name?
Cause I have to know it
You let me in and begin to show it
I'm terrified
cause...

    I think this song is about a soldier who falls in love with a woman in a country he’s trying to protect. Because they come from different cultures and have different faiths-they aren’t supposed to be together. War threatens to tear them apart but they end up finding a way to be together. There is a part of the song that makes me picture an attack and the soldier needing to rescue her.

    I feel like this is a song about two people who (dating most likely) He knows there's something wrong, something happened she won't tell her something that hurt her badly. the memories keep appearing in her head she's breaking down, all he wants to do is be there for her but she won't tell him what happened. he instead stays with her. at the end, she tells him. She's afraid he'll leave her, and she'll be all alone. but he reassures her. he won't ever leave her. and comforts her.

    I think this song is about a very special Lady. When and what people that have become apart of her ideology are willing to do to protect her, you and us all. She stands tall, thanks to people such as John Locke, Frédéric Bartholdi, Gustave Eiffel and all those who have given everything for her. Including those who have died to protect her and our way of life.

    This song reminds me of the Holocaust. I think it is talking about a possible future event like it.
