"Tell Me" as written by Rachel Taylor, Trevor Kelly and Jon Leidersdorff....
Waiting for you, waste the night away
Sing for your return another day
Pace myself or waste away
Everyone else holdin, I can wait

Tell me what you got, tell me what you got
Maybe you were handed a fate
Tell me what you got, tell me what you got
Maybe you were scared to explain

Taking off my clothes I feel a change,
Out of body staring in your face
I have a dream I can't erase
I float above the room and into space

Tell me why you're not, tell me why you're not
Maybe you were locked into place
Tell me why you're not, tell me why you're not
Come down and I'll do the same

A burning rush of color to my face

Tell me what you want, tell me what you want
I'll give the most you can take
Tell me why you're not, tell me why you're not
Maybe you were scared to explain
Tell me what you want, tell me what you want
Over and over again
Tell me why you're not, tell me why you're not
Come down and I'll do the same

    General Commentomg i don't believe this song has no comments. it's so fucking good.
    sadly, i can really relate to it right now in my life.
    we are separated because of drugs. i really love him, but i have to decide whether i'm going to wait for him, when he will be gone so long, with no guarantee that we will ever live in the same city.. =/
