"You Tell Me" as written by and Tom Petty....
Baby I heard thunder
I woke up, middle of the night
Baby I saw fire
I went left, I went right

So you tell me what you want me to do
This might be over honey, it ain't through
Let me know when you're finished with me
What you want me to be
Baby you tell me
Honey you tell me

Baby I don't understand this
But that's alright, I can take a little pain
I've been winnin' and losin'
Baby I've been in and out of reach

So you tell me what you want me to do
This might be over honey, it ain't through
Let me know when you're finished with me
What you want me to be
Baby you tell me
Honey you tell me

Well you put me to your faces
And you twist me so felt I died
Yeah the last thing now you're leaving
Was I finally realizing you lied

So you tell me what you want me to do
This might be over honey it ain't through
Let me know when you're finished with me
What you want me to be
Baby you tell me
Honey you tell me
Baby you tell me
Will you tell me?

    General CommentA somewhat-unknown gem from Damn the Torpedoes, which has a cool late 70's groove. It's obvious the song is about some girl putting the screws to the singer, but the music has a serious tone to it.

    General CommentI love every track on Damn the Torpedoes, literally. This track, like the others, is very honest in what it wants to say, it feels like it's coming from the heart. Love it!
