Maybe He's Not Sooo Bad

Ok, I've been hating on John Mayer ever since the awfulness that is "Your Body is a Wonderland" played non-stop on the radio. But I've got to give it to the man; his songs may be super simple sans all the crazy production some artists fall back on like a crutch, but they usually have a great message behind it. Case in point: his latest song "Say." For those who have yet to hear the song, here are part of the lyrics below. I don't know about you, but I think it's something worth striving for.

"If you could only...Say what you need to say (x8)

Have no fear for givin' in.
Have no fear for giving over.
You better know that in the end
It's better to say too much, than never to say what you need to say again.

Even if your hands are shaking,
And your faith is broken.
Even as the eyes are closin',
Do it with a heart wide open.

Say what you need to say"

Correction: This version corrects the song title to "Say."


  1. I love "Waiting on the world to change"....

    "one day our generation will rule the population, so we keep on waiting, waiting on the world to change"

  2. Oh yes, that's another good one. And I might have had an unspoken soft spot for "Daughters."

  3. oh psh oti, come on!! "i wanna run thru the halls of my high school. i wanna scream AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS!" those high notes are spectacular. oh y tambien: "if you wanna make love, well make it, swim in a deep sea, of blankets.." man that johnny mayer knows all the right things to say/sing to melt women all over the world into puddles of goo!

  4. What would happen if John Mayer was just super pissed one day and then decided to write a little song...

  5. Well that's just preposterous!! John Mayer never gets mad. When God created John Mayer he left that feeling out. John Mayer is calm, patient, kind, and happy, and his voice was made to soothe.

    P.S. I happen to know that John Mayer spends some of his time making silly lil vids and uploading them on his site, imaginate si un dia he decides to google himself and comes across this??? Hi Johnny-boy!


Say word.
