Ruel - say it over (feat. Cautious Clay)

[Chorus: Ruel]
Say it over
If you can't come back tomorrow
I lost my words over you, and I'm sorry
Am I supposed to act worried?
I didn't mean to be cold, guess it's just a sore throat

[Verse 1: Ruel]
We stopped talkin'
The conversation was fadin'
The TV's off, got no coffee
I called you up to tell you I'm changin'

[Pre-Chorus: Ruel]
You can be hard to pin down
I can pull up and turn around
I always leave my phone on
Fallin' asleep, we don't talk
When everything is crashin', you stay
I couldn't keep my head away
You say my jeans don't fit right
You say you're leavin', so am I

[Chorus: Ruel]
Say it over (Over, over)
If you can't come back tomorrow
(If you can't come back, if you can't come back)
I lost my words over you, and I'm sorry
Am I supposed to act worried?
I didn't mean to be cold, guess it's just a sore throat

"say it over" follows "as long as you are," and similarly arrives as yet another breathtaking moment for the enviable tour de force. Joined by Cautious Clay, "say it over" moves with a gentle serenity all its own. Ruel's neo-soul musings on a relationship on its last legs hang just above the gorgeous minimalistic soundscape. The effect is an exquisite marriage of neo-soul and pop, of reflection and moving on. In addition to being a spellbinding track, "say it over" is the latest taste of Ruel's EP "Bright Lights, Red Eyes". He spoke further on the EP, sharing: “I want to get across that this project is another step forward in maturity for me. Free Time was a step up from Ready, and this Bright Lights, Red Eyes EP is a step up again. This project was a stream of consciousness when I was writing it at the time, and I feel like that's the way all projects and songs are for me. They are moments in time.” "say it over" arrives with an accompanying visualizer that reimagines Ruel as a '60s crooner, not a far stretch from the nostalgic air on full display. Yet, while the visual and track do emanate a certain sense of nostalgia for the golden age of soul, there is an undeniable timelessness to Ruel and his latest work of soft-spoken magic. - Ruby Scott. Ones to Watch "I wrote it in Paris with Sarah Aarons. […] and I kept hearing his voice on the song, I kept hearing his tone, and I asked him and he said yes. And I’ve met him a few times, so there’s already been a relationship there, and yeah, then he came back with his verse and I was blown away. Bada bing bada boom, Ruel featuring Cautious Clay – say it over." – Ruel via ELLE
