"Tell It Like It Is" as written by Tony James and Mick Jones....
Tell it like it is
We've got to stop going so fast and figure out what's going on
Tell it like it is
I know there's lots wrong, but we gotta try to be together

Tell it like it is
We're like a ship barely afloat, we can't go on
Tell it how it is
I wanna be around for the good things, I wanna come along

Tell it like it is
We're in a race against time that we should've never run
Tell it how it is
We've got to try to take our time to be together

Tell it like it is
I need to get it all straight and I can't wait too long
Tell it how it is
I wanna be around for the good things, I wanna be strong

Tell it like it is
Maybe I'm wrong
Tell it how it is
I wanna be strong

Tell it like it is
I might be wrong

Here me now, E-Zee-Kill
Tell it like it is
People, everybody
Listen, tell it like it is

Tell it like it is
We've got to stop going so fast and figure out what's going on
Tell it like it is
I know there's lots wrong, but we gotta try to be together

Tell it like it is
We're like a ship barely afloat, we can't go on
Tell it how it is
I wanna be around for the good things, I wanna come along

Tell it like it is
Maybe I'm wrong
Tell it how it is
I wanna be strong

Tell it like it is
We're in a race against time that we should have never run
Tell it how it is
We've got to try and take our time to be together

Tell it like it is
I need to get it all straight, I can't wait too long
Tell it how it is
I wanna be around for the good things, I wanna be strong

Tell it like it is
I might be wrong
