about

Say When comes 4 years after the release of debut album 'Love Joints' and is the first single from forthcoming album 'The Lookout' (to be released next year on Hipdrop Records). There will be a gig to celebrate in Feb 9 2019, venue TBC.

Say When is a love song: an apology to a partner for not paying her enough attention, for not listening. Danny G takes the first verse, full of promise and remorse. The female part of the duet is sung by French artist Osmojam who asks for action, not apologies. On a wider societal level, we heard echoes of these feelings in the Repeal movement. The Republic of Ireland was not listening to its women, and the historic referendum result in May 2018 was experienced by many as an acknowledgement of the pain caused, an apology, and a promise to do better. Both this movement and the activists involved gave us hope for the future - that our daughters could be raised in a fairer, more just society. There is still much work to be done. I hope this video serves as a small but fitting tribute to everyone involved with the cause, and a celebration of their momentous success.

lyrics

Stop what you’re doing
I’ve got something I wanna say to you and
How I’m sorry about the way I’ve been treating you
I’ve been caught up in my own thing
Made you feel invisible
How could I do that when I made a promise to love you
And that’s what I’m gonna do to you

And I’m not gonna stop
‘Til you say when, say when, say when
I’m not gonna stop
‘Til you say when, say when, say when

Stop all your promises
I’ve heard them all before, every single one
Don’t want you to talk about it
Just show me, show me
Come home, don’t delay
The only words I wanna hear you say are
Don’t stop what you’re doing to me darling,
Just love me
Well that’s what I’m gonna do to you

And I’m not gonna stop
‘Til you say when, say when, say when
I’m not gonna stop
‘Til you say when, say when, say when
I’m not gonna stop
‘Til you say when, say when, say when
I’m not gonna stop
‘Til you say when, say when, say when

I don’t wanna stop at all, no, no
I know you sure love to ball, baby
I'm gonna break down every wall
Just to love you
Well that’s what I’m gonna do
That’s what I’m gonna do
Well that’s what I’m gonna do to you

I’m not gonna stop
I’m not gonna stop
I’m not gonna stop
Say When

I’m not gonna stop
I’m not gonna stop
No I’m not gonna stop
Don't make me I don't ever wanna

And I’m not gonna stop
‘Til you say when, say when, say when
I’m not gonna stop
‘Til you say when, say when, say when
I’m not gonna stop
‘Til you say when, say when, say when
I’m not gonna stop
‘Til you say when, say when, say when
