not sure whats wrong with the function i've written

Im almost certain this code for the function test is correct but it keeps saying its wrong, did I miss something?

function returnValue (said) {
  var echo = said;
  return echo;

document.write (returnValue("hello") );
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

<script src="script.js"></script>

The function passes the challenge but could be shortened to this:

function returnValue (said) {
  return said;

The second task wants you to store the result of the function in a variable called echo. You are using document.write().
