"I've Told You Now" as written by Sam Smith and Eg White....
You know what I mean
It's like walking in the heat all day with no water
It's like waiting for a friend
Watching everybody else meet theirs on that corner
Or losing in an argument
Although you're right can't get your thoughts in order

Still I refrain
From talking at you, talking on
You know me well
I don't explain

But what the hell
Why do you think I come 'round here on my free will?
Wasting all my precious time
Oh, the truth spills out
And oh I
I've told you now

You know what I mean
Although I try my best I still let down the team
You're everything I want
Why should I resist when you are there for me?

Still I refrain
From talking at you, talking on
You know me well
I don't explain

But what the hell
Why do you think I come 'round here on my free will?
Wasting all my precious time
Oh the truth spills out
And oh I
I've told you now

I've told you now
And I've told you now!
And I've told you now!

Still I refrain
From talking at you, talking on
You know me well
I don't explain

So what the hell
Why do you think I come 'round here on my free will?
Wasting all my precious time
What the hell
Why do you think I come 'round here on my free will?
Wasting all my precious time

Oh, the truth spills out
And oh I
I've told you now

    General CommentI think his feelings have been said to someone who struggles with hearing them and who is incredibly insecure. The person already knows what he is going to say but is not satisfied unless those things are said out loud, and he refuses. It's a waste of his time if he keeps talking and he's still not heard. Why do you think I come round here wasting all my precious time.... Because I want you. You know me well enough so I'm not going to explain. But that other person is starving to hear his words...like walking in the heat all day without water... Missing that connection... Like watching friends connect and not connecting with yours... Losing an argument because though you're right, you can't get your words in order. That person deep down knows he's there but just can't get themselves in order enough to believe it. He believes his person should know him well enough not to keep having to explain himself. He is there and that should be enough.

    General CommentMaybe he’s telling a story of the day he confessed his feelings. He’s frustrated from “walking in the heat all day with no water”, then waiting for a long time for the friend to show up, then getting into an argument and he can’t express why he’s mad. Maybe the friend is taking him and what he does for granted. He’s been tip toeing around the subject of love for this friend, but now, the levee has broken and it all comes out. This is a literal translation of the song, I know :)
