Just Say Yeah Lyrics

by Jackson Browne

I wanted to be somebody you'd see
When you're feeling good
I started looking for your little MG
In my neighborhood

I started feeling kind of funny and free
When you were around
And I began to cook up a plan to
Take you out of town

Not really dating, we were relating
We were friends
It's hard to say where the relating leaves off
And where loves begins

A friend will tell you all kinds of stuff
That a lover won't
And you would think you would see love coming
But of course, you don't

I want to hold you, don't want to mold you
Into someone else
I never could have invented you
Or written you so well

I never met another woman who
Possessed your particular charms
I want to be that man who will see that
You never come to harm

Must have been you I dreamed of
Yeah, that was you all right
You were the laughter, I was listening to
Standing in the light

You were the lover in the sunrise
Who had begun to slip away
Though I was just a kid
I must have known you'd be real someday

I want to know you, I want to show you
That you're not alone
You've been the only thing steadyin' me
And I guess we've both known

Maybe you never were that ready to see
That I could take you there
Well, that was then but this is when
I need to hear you say, yeah
Baby, just say, yeah
Baby, just say, yeah

Yeah, yeah, baby
Just say, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, baby
Baby, just say, yeah
