Lyrics

Still Say Yes

Written By: Brandon Love

No matter what comes my way, my soul will always say yes. Yes.
No matter what comes my way, my soul will always say yes. Still say yes.

To your will, to your way.
To your word everyday.
It don't matter, come what may,
yes is what I'll say.

Heartbreak, I'll always say yes.
Depression. Still yes.
Disappointment. I'll always say yes.
Oppresion. Yes
