What I would say lyrics

Living off that sunset boulevard
I'd see the lights, I'd hear your car,
I'd drive right through parking lots and bars
I'd watch the phone, I'd watch the door
I'd pray your name out to the shore
My head and heart always at war

I carry on sunglasses on rainy days
A place to hide behind just in case.

[Chorus:]
I know just how to cry
Won't even have to try
I've practiced what to say when they say
Are you doing okay?
Maybe I'd find some grace
Say he's in a better place
I hope I never have to find out
What I would say
What I would say

Your hello's sound like goodbye
But you were always meant to fly
I just hoped it would be in my sky.
Still a boy out on the beach,
Always just out of reach
The things you love you have to release

I've got the dress, and I've got the shoes
Know who I'd call if I got the news.

[Chorus:]
I know just how to cry
Won't even have to try
I've practiced what to say when they say
Are you doing okay?
Maybe I'd find some grace
Say he's in a better place
I hope I never have to find out
What I would say
What I would say

What I would say.

I carry sunglasses on rainy days
A place to hide behind just in case.

[Chorus:]
I know just how to cry
Won't even have to try
I've practiced what to say when they say
Are you doing okay?
Maybe I'd find some grace
Say he's in a better place
I hope I never have to find out
What I would say
What I would say.

What I would say.
What I would say.
What I would say.
