about

Say You Love Me is the moment when you've packed all your bags and you're standing at the door, looking back at your former partner, wondering if it all was worth it in the end. Alison Young narrates the internal monologue, as you internally take stock of how much went wrong over the years.

lyrics

You faded long ago
Into the background of the scene
Audible when speaking
But not saying what you mean

I've been building you a palace
Where the two of us could stay
But the ground is never stable
And the walls are giving way
You can pick up all the pieces
Or just choose to walk away
But when you leave
Say you love me

I echo through the hall
Like the chorus of a dream
Right beyond your memory
And never what I seem

We wander through the space
Commit to tired, aching lies
Going through the motions
When we should have said goodbye

In the remnants of a castle
You can find your broken heart
Take the pieces of your love
And set the shards of mine apart
I thought I'd be hurt forever
But I turned you into art
So when you see
Say you love me

In the remnants of a castle
You can find your broken heart
Take the pieces of your love
And set the shards of mine apart
I thought I'd be hurt forever
But I turned you into art
So when you see
Say you love me

Say you love me
