"Tell Me Something Good" as written by and Stephen Bryce Avary....
You ain't got no kind of feeling inside
I got something that will sure 'nuff set your stuff on fire
You refuse to put anything before your pride
What I got something will knock all your pride aside

Tell me something good
Tell me that you love me, yeah
Tell me something good
Tell me that you like it, yeah

Got no time is what you're known to say
I'll make you wish there was forty eight hours to each day
The problem is you ain't been loved like you should
What I got to give will sure 'nuff do you good

Tell me something good
Tell me that you love me, yeah
Tell me something good
Tell me that you like it, yeah

You ain't got no kind of feeling inside
I got something that will sure 'nuff set your stuff on fire
You refuse to put anything before your pride
What I got something will knock all your pride aside

Tell me something good (oh, yeah, yeah)
Tell me that you love me, yeah
Tell me something good
Tell me that you like it, yeah

Tell me something good (tell me baby baby, tell me)
Tell me that you love me, yeah, yeah, yeah yeah
Tell me something good (oh, tell me, tell me, tell me)
Tell me that you like it, yeah, yeah

    General CommentHe's struggling with feelings of pride and wanting to be the best, but his religion tells him that that it's sinful to think that way. The knowledge he possesses causes stress and leads him to break down and he's asking for some comfort from someone that he's not the only one who feels this way.

    General CommentI think this is a growing pains song. When you're a kid, you want to be this great person, and do all these great things. When you're an adult, wou have to realize that might not happen, and that this isn't the worst that could happen. But in between, there's this point where you have to hold both views at once, and it's hard.

    And I think this is about having a crush, too. Just a little bit.

    General CommentI have always thought of this song along the same lines as tallgirl.
    which is why instead of "so like a show I gotta be strong", I have always heard "so like good Job I gotta be strong".
    I thought that is what it said for the lyrics in the cd book thing too. I'll check again later, but it makes sense doesn't it?
    I think I get the gist of the song overall. He wants to know there is something good to live for, because right now all he knows is that he wants to be the best, but he knows it's wrong. that's what I get from it. but then I look at it line by line and all the tell me something goods and the I want something bads get jumbled.
    but basically. I love this song. It's beautiful. his voice, the lyrics, the music, the meaning, everything.
