- james labrie

I remember when we were so young
You embraced my fears and made me strong
Never did you actually hold my hand
Your silence no one else would understand

Did you fall?
Did you crawl?
Will you open up at all?
Did you hear
Things you fear?
Did I make it clear?

Tell me what you're thinking
Tell me what you're thinking
Tell me what you're feeling inside
Tell me what you're thinking
Tell me what you're thinking
Tell me what you're feeling inside

Do you like the clothes she wears today
Colliding love affair against a shade
Often times I wish she'd speak to me
Her holy open book, a world revealed to see

Did you fall?
Did you crawl?
Will you open up at all?
Did you hear
Things you fear?
Did I make it clear?

Tell me what you're thinking
Tell me what you're thinking
Tell me what you're feeling inside
Tell me what you're thinking
Tell me what you're thinking
Tell me all you're feeling inside

So easy, easier
If you spoke to me
So easy, easier
Speak to me

Tell me what you're thinking
Tell me what you're thinking
Tell me what you're feeling inside
Tell me what you're thinking
Tell me what you're thinking
Tell me all you're feeling inside

    General Commentits a shame i'm the first one to submit a comment! this is in my opinion the most beautiful DT song... its a gem! personally i like james labrie backed up by this sort of music... i prefer DT to do slower, cleaner, less technical songs... stuff like SILENT MAN, HOLLOW YEARS, THROUGH HER EYES...

    SPEAK TO ME... what can i say? where can i begin?? deeply romantic, and oddly sentimental (in a good way)... personally i think the song is about unrequited love... or rather the love returned but not in the way the protagonist desires... he wants his beloved to open up... more... so that souls may touch.

    a timeless song. its great music to make love to. great to play at weddings too! everytime i hear it i remember a voice, a smile, and a face.

    General Commentthis song is simple great.
    i think this song is about a girl broke up with a boy, and she doesnt dare to say why, because she is scared of the unknown

    "the song is about unrequited love... or rather the love returned but not in the way the protagonist desires... he wants his beloved to open up... more... so that souls may touch."
