A Great Big World Lyrics

Say Something Lyrics
Say something, I'm giving up on you.
I'll be the one, if you want me to.
Anywhere I would've followed you.
Say something, I'm giving up on you.

And I am feeling so small.
It was over my head
I know nothing at all.

And I will stumble and fall.
I'm still learning to love
Just starting to crawl.

Say something, I'm giving up on you.
I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you.
Anywhere I would've followed you.
Say something, I'm giving up on you.

And I will swallow my pride.
You're the one that I love
And I'm saying goodbye.

Say something, I'm giving up on you.
And I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you.
And anywhere I would've followed you. Oh-oh-oh-oh
Say something, I'm giving up on you.

Say something, I'm giving up on you.
Say something...

Say Something Info:

• Say Something was written by the duo members, Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino, while production was handled by Dan Romer. The single was re-recorded to feature vocals from Christina Aguilera, after she heard the song and loved it.

• Sonically, the indie pop, piano ballad is underlined by a piano and string arrangement. Lyrically, the song talks about a breakup, with the singers evoking the emotion felt when choosing to leave a failed relationship even though love still remains, with the lover imploring to make a statement that could potentially reverse plans.

• Lamb also explained the song, writing that, "Instead of being filled with anger and desperation, it is a song expressing a powerful combination of humility, sadness and regret." The song was written at a time when both members were experiencing individual heartbreak. "Writing the song was part of the healing process," says Axel. "Whenever we perform it, it's like revisiting the scar. It's always a part of me, and I can always go there and feel it."


• The song won the 2015 Grammy award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance
