Video Watch : Say Something

Wonderful song by A Great Big World featuring Christina Aguilera. When you listen, it moves you. When I watched the video, I simply cried.

What are the lyrics?

Say something, I’m giving up on you.
I’ll be the one, if you want me to.
Anywhere, I would’ve followed you.
Say something, I’m giving up on you.

And I am feeling so small.
It was over my head
I know nothing at all.

And I will stumble and fall.
I’m still learning to love
Just starting to crawl.

Say something, I’m giving up on you.
I’m sorry that I couldn’t get to you.
Anywhere, I would’ve followed you.
Say something, I’m giving up on you.

And I will swallow my pride.
You’re the one that I love
And I’m saying goodbye.

Say something, I’m giving up on you.
And I’m sorry that I couldn’t get to you.
And anywhere, I would have followed you.
Oh-oh-oh-oh say something, I’m giving up on you.

Say something, I’m giving up on you.
Say something…

What do the words in bold mean?

  • to give up : to admit you can’t do something and stop trying
  • to stumble & fall: when you  hit your foot somewhere and then fall. In this case it is means that you are learning something unexpectedly so you may make mistakes.
  • to swallow my pride : to be humble

How would you interpret this song?

In my view, it’s totally about love. The singer loves and cares for someone deeply, he still wants to work things out and would do anything for that other person but he is very hurt by the lack of response.

Can you answer these questions?

  1. Had you heard this song before? What do you think of it?
  2. Did you like Aguilera’s performance and look?
  3. Which scene moved you the most in the video? Why?
  4. Have you ever loved someone without having a similar sentiment in return?

Like, share & comment. We always appreciate it.

Lem..xo
