It was released digitally in the United Kingdom in March 2007. It was the album's fifth single in Latin America. "Say It Right" attained worldwide success, topping the charts in more than seven countries, including the United States, France, New Zealand and many European countries.

In the day
In the night
Say it right
Say it all
You either got it
Or you don't
You either stand or you fall
When your will is broken
When it slips from your hand
When there's no time for joking
There's a hole in the plan

Oh, you don't mean nothing at all to me
No, you don't mean nothing at all to me
But you got what it takes to set me free
Oh, you could mean everything to me

I can't say that, I'm not lost and at fault
I can't say that, I don't love the light and the dark
I can't say that, I don't know that I am alive
And all of what I feel I could show
You tonight you tonight

Oh you don't mean nothing at all to me
No you don't mean nothing at all to me
But you got what it takes to set me free
Oh you could mean everything to me

From my hands, I could give you
Something that I made
From my mouth, I could sing you another brick that I laid
From my body, I could show you a place God knows
You should know the space is holy
Do you really want to go?
