Song Lyric Sunday – Say You Like Me by We The Kings

If I had one band that I could say was my favorite, it would be We The Kings. They just make me happy – the music, the lyrics; and I have to tell you, the music video to this song is an all-out geek fest and I loved it! Oh, and the lead singer is a red-head, so there’s that…

I started listening to them right before I took Adelle to our first Warped Tour. We were still in line when they started playing on the main stage, so I had to listen to most of it from a distance. I was pretty sad about it because they were the only reason I was truly excited about going. Everything else was entirely for Adelle.

Since then, I have seen them live on several occasions. The one that sticks out most in my head was when they played at a small venue in down town Salt Lake City. I took Adelle and two of her good friends. We ended up right near the front and by the time it was over, none of us had a voice.

They played this song and there was a part where they actually filmed the crowd singing it. Adelle’s friend posted the video on her Facebook feed a few days later and we all got a kick out of pointing ourselves out, although mostly all you could see was an arm or the top of someone’s head. I was still able to pull the video up a few years ago, but when I tried to find it recently, I realized I was no longer friends with the individual. (Is it weird that I’m friends with some of my kids’ friends on social media?)

I could probably do the memory-lane thing all day when it comes to this band. So I will just post the song and let you have fun with it. As always, feel free to read the rules below and post your own.

Say You Like Me by We The Kings
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics
(There’s a lot of repetition, so I removed some of it for ease of reading)

She’s the girl that no one ever knows.
And I say hi, but she’s too shy to say hello.
She’s just waiting for that one to take her hand
And shake her up.
I bet I could.

I wish my heart was always on her mind.
‘Cause she’s on mine like all day, all the time.
Forget me not, forget me now.
I’ve come too far to turn around.
I’m here tonight.

‘Cause I’m never going down,
I’m never giving up.
I’m never gonna leave,
So put your hands up.
If you like me,
Then say you like me.
I’m never going down,
I’m never giving up.
I’m never gonna leave,
So put your hands up.
If you like me,
Then say you like me.

Whoa, oh, oh, oh.

She’s the girl that no one ever knows.
Works a double just to buy her clothes.
Nicotine and faded dreams,
Baby, just believe
There’s no one else like me.

‘Cause I’m never going down,
I’m never giving up.
I’m never gonna leave,
So put your hands up.
If you like me,
Then say you like me.
I’m never going down,
I’m never giving up.
I’m never gonna leave,
So put your hands up.
If you like me,
Then say you like me.

Whoa, oh, oh, oh.

It’s time to fall into my arms.
‘Cause I’ve been waiting for too long.
You’re an angel,
Grab your halo,
And lets fly tonight.

‘Cause I’m never going down,
I’m never giving up.
I’m never gonna leave,
So put your hands up.
If you like me,
Then say you like me.

‘Cause I’m never going down,
I’m never giving up.
I’m never gonna leave,
So put your hands up.
If you like me,
Then say you like me.
I’m never going down,
I’m never giving up.
I’m never gonna leave,
So put your hands up.
If you like me,
Then say you like me.

Whoa, oh, oh, oh.
Just say you like me.
