"Tell Me" as written by and R.w. Johnson Kim Boyce....
what was forever
and will never be the same
everything you took from me
how could i complain?

tell me that it's over
was it really ever worth it?
there is no one here to blame
tell me that it's over
was it really ever worth it?
this is never gonna change

and i see in the sunlight
how it feels in the background
it is awfully dark here
and i can't find my way out

did you meet someone new
and tell her the same things
when you were through?
did you find out the same things about you?

tell me that it's over
was it really ever worth it?
we can't always be in love
tell me that it's over
was it really ever worth it?
will this ever be enough?

and i see in the sunlight
how it feels in the background
it is awfully dark here
and i can't find my way out

and i see in the sunlight
how it feels in the background
and i see in the sunlight
how it feels in the background

(tell me that it's over
was it really ever worth it?)

    General CommentThe juxtaposition between the upbeat, happy chords and the dark, dark, dark lyrics is incredible. Favorite song on the new album.
