"What To Say And How To Say It" - Third Cat

when you let me feel the warmth of your love
you're melting the ice off of my cold heart
wanna tell you how you spun me around
but i open my mouth and there's not a sound

i don't know what to say
and i don't know how to say it
la la la la la
and i don't know how to say it

***instrumental break***

i don't know what to say
and i don't know how to say it
la la la la la
and i don't know how to say it

can't find the way in
can't see the sunbird
don't know who i am
i've lost my password

when you let me feel the warmth of your love
you're melting the ice off of my cold heart
wanna tell you how you spun me around
but i open my mouth and there's not a sound

i don't know what to say
and i don't know how to say it
la la la la la
and i don't know how to say it

What To Say And How To Say It
Micah Sommersmith

You stand in line
A line that shuffles slowly and seems to stretch for miles
You wait to give your line
To the family all in black with their red-eyed smiles

A line about how sorry you are
About the pain they must feel
It’s all rehearsed in your head
But it just doesn’t seem real

You try to figure what to say and how to say it
You search for words that might supply some healing balm
Who knows the price of grief? but now you watch them try to pay it
Maybe it’s easier to say nothing at all

And then some day
You face the line
A line that shuffles slowly and seems to stretch for miles
You hear a thousand lines
You receive them with a nod and a red-eyed smile

These lines about how sorry they are
About the pain you must feel
It’s all rehearsed, but their eyes
Tell you the feeling is real

You won’t remember what they say or how they say it
There are no words that will supply that healing balm
You’ve learned the price of grief, and now you’re busy trying to pay it
You’ll just remember that they said something at all

You won’t remember what they say or how they say it
You’ll just remember that they said something at all

What To Say And How to Say It - Paco del Stinko

So you done died and I gotta say something (something)
Lay down and glide (glide) 'cos it don't mean nothing

I'm good at what not to say (dit didit baht baht bayo)
I'm good at what not to say


So you done cried and I just couldn't feel it
Don't say there's no tried, you just wouldn't unreel it

I'm good at what not to say (dit didit baht baht bayo)
I'm good at what not to say
Don't say it - don't say it


Perfect day - Like each is in its own way
Going astray - Cold ash in the tray

How to say it - How to say it - How to say it

I always say it's just best to say it
Grab a hold then let go
Like the melting of snow
Whan all that you do's just for show

So I done lied and you can tell that's the truth
Ain't no gonna deny you're playing the wrong suit

I'm good at what not to say (dit didit baht baht bayo)
I'm good at what not to say
Bringin' the stink since 2006.

What To Say And How To Say It
Evil Grin

It’s been a long time
Since you’ve been, been in my bed
But every moment, every moment
You invade, invade my head

It doesn’t matter
Our beginning or our end
Just want this one night, want this one night
So we can, so we can blend

Is it alright
If I take the reigns tonight
And tell you
What to do
Wanna tell you
Wanna tell you

What to say and how to say it
What to do and how to do it
How to please me, how to tease me

Where to kiss me and how deeply
When to push me, when to pull me
How to take me, how to break me

I’m lying here
In anticipation
To tell you
What to do
Wanna tell you
Wanna tell you

What to say and how to say it
What to do and how to do it
How to please me, how to tease me

Where to kiss me and how deeply
When to push me, when to pull me
How to take me, how to break me
How to take me, how to break me

I’m lying here
In anticipation

What To Say And How To Say It
Jim Tyrrell

“There’s only two things keeping me from writing
The next great American novel”, he said
“One is what to say, and the other’s how to say it -
By the time I get it figured out I’ll prob’ly be dead.

“I’ve had this idea building up for ages
And now it’s like a rat crawling ‘round in my head
If I don’t get it out, pretty soon it’s gonna kill me
But I’m gonna live forever if it ever gets read.

“Read all about it -
They’re all gonna shout it:
Welcome to the wonderland waiting on the page!
If I can figure out what to say and how to say it
Maybe I can find my way out of this paper-white cage.

“I’ve got a point but I don’t know how to make it;
It’s something ‘bout redemption and something ‘bout a girl.
And in my notebook every night I try to chase it
And there isn’t enough coffee in the god damn world.

“Read all about it -
They’re all gonna shout it:
Welcome to the wonderland waiting on the page!
If I can figure out what to say and how to say it
Maybe I can find my way out of this paper-white cage.”

Instr.

“Pen to the paper,
A waking world escaper -
Still looking for that wonderland hiding on the page!
If I can figure out what to say and how to say it
Maybe I can find my way out of this paper-white cage.”

My Social Uniform
what to say and how to say it

all the anger you hide within
spills out on the floor
if you’re overwhelmed when it pulls you in
I will close the door

if I only knew what to say and how to say it...

I will carry this for you
hold you up
until your feeling returns
I will carry this for you
I remember how it feels

funny how your thoughts cloud
and act without thinking
I will go down with your ship
even if it’s not sinking

if I only knew what to say and how to say it...

chorus

this never gets any easier
you just learn to keep moving on
and the paths never get any clearer
just drag your baggage along

if you need someone to hurt
i’ll be right here

chorus
I am right here
I am right here

I’m sorry that I won’t be calling you this evening
but I’m working on a script that you’ll have some chance of believing
and it only has one act, there are just two roles to play
but with each revision I get further away

I turn it over in my mind
constantly replay it
because I don’t know what to say
or how to say it

I’m sorry that you haven’t heard from me in ages
I cannot find the strength although the words are on the pages
though they look OK in writing, it doesn’t seem inviting
to speak them all out loud, and so my tongue I keep on biting
