“Don’t Say” is a melancholic pop song with mournful vibes all around. As a result, the song starts off very slowly, highlighting Feudo’s peachy vocals in a sad way. However, later on, the song takes on a more electronic tone. It becomes a twist from sadness to frustration, and both feelings make sense to me alongside the lyrics. Lyrics like “I just keep breaking while you use me up / Don’t say you love me, this isn’t love” show courage in talking openly about hurtful moments. There’s nothing quite so damaging nor as scary as opening yourself up to others. Yet, Feudo manages to do both perfectly. In addition, this song can be relatable for people who have been in a toxic relationship. So, stream Alissa Feudo’s “Don’t Say” to learn how to open up a little more.
