[Verse 1]
You got a plastic name and a plastic heart
You can play the game or you'll never start
I'm talking to you
You got a plastic house and a plastic fence
Gotta look around or you'll lose your sense
Am I getting through?

You got a plastic girl in a plastic bed
And she's in your house made of gingerbread
You're in there too
Got a plastic smile on a plastic face
But it's underneath that you can't erase
But what can you do-do-do?

[Chorus]
Say love
(Tell me what I want, what I want to hear)
It's not that hard after all
When everybody does

Say love
(Tell me what I want, what I want to hear)
It's gonna tear down the walls
If everybody loves

[Verse 2]
You live in a plastic dream through a plastic card
But reality you don't disregard
You know that it's true
You got a plastic goal in a plastic life
Gotta search your soul, gotta make it right
And here's what you do-do-do

[Chorus]
Say love
(Tell me what I want, what I want to hear)
It's not that hard after all
When everybody does

Say love
(Tell me what I want, what I want to hear)
It's gonna tear down the walls
If everybody loves

[Verse 3]
Wake up in the morning
Some are not sleeping tight
A matter you've been ignoring
Why can't you just say it?
Will not wait forever
Can't you see I'm right
I want you to endeavor
To tell me again and again

[Chorus]
Say love
(Tell me what I want, what I want to hear)
Say love
(Tell me what I want, what I want to hear)
It's not that hard after all
When everybody does

Say love
(Tell me what I want, what I want to hear)
It's gonna tear down the walls
If everybody loves

(Tell me what I want, what I want to hear)
It's not that hard after all
When everybody does
Say love
(Tell me what I want, what I want to hear)
It's gonna tear down the walls

(Tell me what I want, what I want to hear)
(Tell me what I want, what I want to hear)
