John Mayer - SAY (New Track!)


You know, I should probably wait for this to go up on iTunes, but with so much coverage of my worthless non-guitar playing pursuits, I think I owe you all a bit of what I actually DO for a living. This is a song called "Say", and was written for the upcoming film "The Bucket List", starring the powerhouse acting duo of Nicholson and Freeman. Of course I'm speaking about the great Frank Nicholson and Moishe Freeman, who haven't reunited since the hit '70s sitcom "That '50s Show".

And if you happen to see me in pictures looking as if I'm having the time of my life, just remember that I'm probably actually thinking of something quite somber. So rest easy, superfans.


John Mayer

And here the lyrics -

Take all of your wasted honor
Every little past frustration
Take all of your so-called problems
Better put them in quotations

Say what you need to say

Walking like a one-man army
Fighting with the shadows in your head
Living out the same old moment
Knowing you'd be better off instead if you could only

Say what you need to say

Have no fear for giving in
Have no fear for giving over
You better know that in the end it's better to say too much
Then never to say what you need to say again...

Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open

Say what you need to say...

Thanks for letting us hear it!

I can't help but think (hope) he's going all folky à la Vedder. The beginning of the song reminds me of the soundtrack for Into the Wild. Good song. I like Mayer. :)

Just when it seems like another season of "The LA" is going to overwhelm....John Mayer releases another song. Thank you, I play guitar because of what John is.
