Say Something Loving

This song is by The xx and appears on the album I See You (2017).

Original video
(Before it slips away)

Say something loving
I just don't remember
The thrill of affection
I just don't remember
Say something loving
I need a reminder
The feeling's escaped me

I went looking for it
Could have been anyone's kiss
Throwing my arms at no-one
When I gave up I found love

The thought flows through my mind
And it's growing all the time
I do myself a disservice
To feel this weak, to be this nervous

You say something loving
It's so overwhelming
The thrill of affection
Feels so unfamiliar
You say something loving
Without hesitation
It hits me, hits me
It feels so unfamiliar

(Before it slips away)

Your touch stays on my skin
I feel it start sinking in
Here come my insecurities
I almost expect you to leave

Were you really looking for me?
Try your best to reassure me
I was impatient to meet you
Am I too needy, am I too eager?

I don't know, I don't know
I don't know, I don't know
What this is but it doesn't feel wrong
I don't know, I don't know
I don't know, I don't know
What this is but it doesn't feel wrong

Did you hear me say it?
Say it
Did you hear me say?

I say something loving
I can't hold it inside
The thrill of affection
Is only getting stronger
I say something loving
All my hesitations
Are fading, fading
I feel it taking over

(Before it slips away)
Don't let it slip away
(Before it slips away)
Don't let it slip away
