Maggie Rogers - Say It Lyrics




Standing in the open light
Within the swelter of the night
I found myself staring at you
And every time our fingers touched
I felt like it would be too much
And too little to hang on to

I cannot fall in love with you
I cannot feel this way so soon, so soon
I cannot be this way with you
I cannot fall in love with you

I knew it when you looked my way
That I'd be begging you to stay
I couldn't say it to myself
I couldn't say it to myself
I fought that burdened pain away
I held on when you moved away
I couldn't say it to myself
I couldn't say it to myself
I couldn't say it
I couldn't just say it

And every evening, every time
I keep replaying in my mind
And wondering if you do the same
And if it makes you lose your breath
And if it makes you just forget
That all of it's a bit insane

I cannot fall in love with you
I cannot feel this way so soon
I cannot be this way with you
I cannot fall in love with you

I knew it when you looked my way
That I'd be begging you to stay
I couldn't say it to myself
I couldn't say it to myself
I fought that burdened pain away
I held on when you moved away
I couldn't say it to myself
I couldn't say it to myself

I knew it when you walked my way
That I'd be begging you to stay
I couldn't say it to myself
I couldn't say it to myself
I fought that burdened pain away
I held on when you moved away
I couldn't say it to myself
I couldn't say it to myself
I couldn't say it
I couldn't just say it

That I cannot fall in love with you
I cannot feel this way so soon, so soon
I cannot be this way with you
I cannot fall in love with you

  51. Aj Michelle

    Looks like she could be Sigrid's older sister

  52. Edd Dampios

    ever since her album dropped, i couldn't stop replaying this song. it's the perfect song to listen to when you're crushing on someone you can never have, and you have to painfully remind yourself that you have to stop loving them or else you would end up in pain. it's so bittersweet, beautiful, intimate, painful, and delicate at the same time. and idk if it's the added experience with this song, but this song is just so hauntingly beautiful that i can't stop playing it. very few new artists can have an impact like that on their listeners.

  53. Dua Elisa

  62. Juan galindo

    I didn't know I needed this until today. I'm blessed

  63. S&DH

    She's talented, but flaky and narcissistic as hell, swears like a trooper, tells the press she's a "witchy feminist Rock Star' (one reviewer says maybe in her own mind but not in fact, she's none of that) and boasts that she's "totally together'. Ahem. She likes to call people "dude," is into tarot, and endlessly talks about herself. And to make things worse she's collapsing into the homogeneous pop scene, barely folkish anymore, and will probably be wearing thongs on stage soon. If she doesn't get back to her roots she'll fade too early, because as her initial music showed she does have some talent.

  64. deesine

    The female Chet Faker

  65. anotheridea Idea

    Since I first heard Alaska I felt personally connected to Maggie. Her music just gives and gives. She's a true artist and puts so much of her heart and self into the work. It's incredible to receive something like that and I'm just so thankful she exists. Thank you, Maggie.
