lyrics

You cannot go on striking matches
'Cause we are not the matching strikes
And love doesn't spread in patches
It's no hundred mile tightrope hike

It's not about asking for permission
Your ego seems to be painted in red
With your strings of a special mission
And a superhero cape made of lead

Every possibility
And all of your voices
Are too obviously confusing me
Can't go on with no choices
It's ok if you want to wait
But then I have to move on
I can't see no other way
Well if you dare follow me

Say what you wanna
Say what you wanna say
Say what you wanna do
Before we are drowning in flames
Say what you wanna
Say what you wanna say
Say what you wanna do
Before we are drowning in flames

I cannot go on striking matches
'Cause we are not the matching strikes
Let's concede defeat with a few scratches
And get rid of our spikes
And I don't need your appreciation
To love you low-key
And you don't need any translation
'Cause you even misread our ABC

Every possibility
And all of your voices
Are too obviously confusing me
Can't go on with no choices

Say what you wanna
Say what you wanna say
Say what you wanna do
Before we are drowning in flames
Say what you wanna
Say what you wanna say
Say what you wanna do
Before we are drowning in flames
Say what you wanna
Say what you wanna say
Say what you wanna do
Before we are drowning in flames
Say what you wanna
Say what you wanna say
Say what you wanna do
Before we are drowning in flames

Say what you wanna
Say what you wanna say
Say what you wanna
