Aimee Mann — Say Anything lyrics

You see me as a judge
Though I deny it
And hold me like a grudge
Then justify it
But when you take such pains
In searching for something that explains
Please take a good look at our remains
[Chorus]
'Cause if you were everything you say
Things would be different today
And maybe there's room for compromise
But signs that I get say otherwise
Say anything 'cause I've heard everything
As hopeless as it seems
I wouldn't worry
You'll get your chance to tell
Your side of the story
While you're raising your right hand,
Whatever defenses you had planned,
Remember that when you take the stand
[Chorus]
If you were everything you say
Things would be different today
And though I'd be happy to believe
I'd have to be much more naive
Say anything, (I've heard everything)
Yeah say anything, (I've heard everything)
Now I've heard everything (now I've heard everything)
Now I've heard everything (now I've heard everything)
So why do I refuse
The truth, when I clearly cannot use
The comfort of one more lame excuse
[Chorus]
'cause if you were everything you say
Things would be different today
And if you were everything you swear
We wouldn't be beyond repair
[Chorus]
If you were everything you say
Things would be different today
And if there has got to be an if
Get it over with
Say anything, 'cause I've heard everything
Now I've heard everything (now I've heard everything)
Now I've heard everything
(repeat the above a couple dozen times)
