Songs > Speak Up > Lyrics

So my conscience said, "Don't you ever think that you're asking for too much?"
Yeah I know right now that I got more than enough
Keep it off the record 'cause that's no crime
Yeah keeps me honest, well most of the time
Every little thing about myself that I come to dread
Every little thing, every little thing, every little
It all becomes a permanent part of me instead

Ooh, maybe you're right, this time I should stay
Ooh, tell me why you think that I should meet you halfway
Ooh, tell me what you want, tell me what you really want
What do you really want from me
Ooh, 'cause I don't think it's right, you say it's a waste of time
That's not the way it's supposed to be

And all those words that nobody heard and you wish that you had said
There was never a time, never a place
I never really had anything worth saying
It's like every little song you heard in your head and you wish you had sung
It's singing "ooo la la, yeah, I'm still stepping underneath your toes"

Ooh, maybe you're right, this time I should stay
Ooh, tell me why you think that I should meet you halfway
Ooh, tell me what you want, tell me what you really want
What do you really want from me
Ooh, cause I don't think it's right, you say it's a waste of time
That's not the way it's supposed to be

Speak up, speak up
You better tell me now please and I won't betray if you got something to say you gotta say it right now
Can you tell me now please and I won't betray if you got something to say you gotta say it right now
