"Tell Him" as written by and Lauryn Hill....
Let me be patient let me be kind
Make me unselfish without being blind
Though I may suffer I'll envy it not
And endure what comes
'Cause he's all that I got and
Tell him...

Tell him I need him (yeah)
Tell him I love him (tell him)
And it'll be alright
{Background singing} Telll himmm be alright be alright
Tell him tell him I need him
Tell him I love him
It'll be alright

Now I may have faith to make mountains fall
But if I lack love then I am nothin' at all
I can give away everything I possess
But left without love then I have no happiness
I know I'm imperfect (I know I'm imperfect)
And not without sin (and not without sin)
But now that I'm older all childish things end
And tell him...

Tell him I need him (yeah)
Tell him I love him (tell him)
And it'll be alright
{Background singing} Telll himmm be alright be alright
Tell him tell him I need him
Tell him I love him
It'll be alright

I'll never be jealous
And I won't be too kind
'Cause love is not boastful
Oooh and love is not loud
Tell him I need him
Tell him I love him
Everything's gonna be alright
Oooh oooh yeah yeah aww yeah

Now I may have wisdom and knowledge on Earth
But if I speak wrong then what is it worth?
See what we now know is nothing compared
To the love that was shown when our lives were spared
And tell him...

Tell him I need him (yeah)
Tell him I love him (tell him)
And it'll be alright
{Background singing} Telll himmm be alright be alright
Tell him tell him I need him
Tell him I love him
It'll be alright

    General CommentSuch a feel good song and her voice is so soothing. Something to listen to when you're lover is away from you but you can't help but think of why you love him so much and that he makes you so happy. You wish he could be there beside you to say all these things to him. But you know that he knows this in his heart.
