Don’t we all want to feel loved? The type of love that makes us feel giddy, up and about, giving us those butterflies in our stomachs would definitely make us melt. But with Dierks Bentley’s “Say You Do,” it is a different kind of love that we somehow felt at one point in time.
Written by Matthew Ramsey, Shane McAnally, and Trevor Rosen, the song was released in October 2014 as one of the singles in Bentley’s Riser album. It was certified Gold by the RIAA in June 2015 and peaked at the number one spot on the US Billboard Country Airplay and 5th on the US Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
Meaning Behind The Song
A lot have said that it is a no-no if you’re begging for your significant other to get back with you after a break-up. Listening to “Say You Do” by Dierks Bentley might get you questioning those people.
Bentley’s single speaks about a man begging his ex-lover to still be with him and love him even if she won’t anymore. The country singer mentioned that the song is about somehow wanting the love back even though it might not be good for you. He also added that this thought might have people relate to the song as it is something they experienced at some point.
Although it is a bit different to beg for someone who doesn’t want you anymore, it may be an experience that will lead you to become a wiser person in the future.
