Say the Perfect Thing

Listen to clip
Written by Todd Stuart and Doug Harvey

Verse
What you feared was never there
Was there all along
And what you feared might let you down
Unraveled in our sleep

Verse
I know you wonder where I am
All you know is that I’m not with you
I know that I’d be with you now
If you asked…Oh well

Chorus
Love comes from nothing
From nothing at all
It slips away like it was never here at all
Say anything, anything at all
I can’t wait for you
I can’t wait for you to say
Can’t wait for you to say
The perfect thing

Verse
What can I say to you
That’s not been said before?
How do I go on when I know
You don’t want me anymore

Verse
I’m better off without you now
They say it won’t be long
But they don’t know you like I do
They haven’t loved you like I do

Repeat Chorus

Bridge
They say that patience is my protection
In the cruel hard light of love’s defection
Tell me they’re all wrong
Tell me they’re all wrong

 Verse
Sometimes in my dreams at night
I have no song to sing
Sometimes in my dreams you speak
You say the perfect thing
You say the perfect thing
You say the perfect thing
