"Tell-Tale Heart" as written by Cyrus William Bolooki, Chad Everett Gilbert, Ian R. Grushka, Stephen Lee Klein and Jordan I. Pundik....
Don't tell me
What it's like to love someone.
A different song for a different girl.
And to think I might be wrong.

Tell tale heart again.
Words like these won't win
Theses words and hearts.
You would come over to talk,
We'd act like there is something to say
I've learned that time can heal your wounds.
But a reminder of a scar will stay

Stay,
Right here,right by me.
Stay,
The flame has died,
Down.

Don't tell me
What it's like to love someone.
A different song for a different girl.
And to think I might be wrong.

Tell tale heart again.
Words like these won't win
These words and hearts.
You would come over to talk,
We'd act like there is something to say
I've learned that time can heal you wounds.
But a reminder of a scar will stay

Stay,
Right here,right by me
Stay,
The flame has died,
Down.

    General CommentAwesone song, but I don't understand the title. I've read 'Tell Tale Heart' and I really don't see how it applies. Anyone have an opinion?

    Does it just sound cool, or does it actually have a meaning?

    The only way I can see it working is that maybe he broke a girls heart and feels bad for doing it. He tries to be friends with her but it really doesn't work out. Their conversations are dry and there is always a constant reminder of their relationship in his mind. Despite the relationship being dead, its still beating and living in his mind.

    Wow, it makes sense to me now. Kinda cool how that worked out... as I typed it started to clear up for me!

    General Commentin the 'tell tale heart' by poe the eye and the beating heart of the man never go away because he hates them so much. thats where i get confused... in the song it seems like he almost doesn't want her to leave... the only thing i can figure out is the fact that neither one will go away

    General CommentYa... I'm still not fully understanding the song. He says "Tell Tale Heart again..." what the heck?

    Lets look at what he says before that.

    "don't tell me
    what it's like to love someone.
    a different song for a different girl.
    and to think i might be wrong."

    "tell tale heart again"

    This is what I'm thinking. In the first part he is talking about finding the right girl. Maybe he is playing girls and coming up with clever ways of getting rid of them. He thinks he is doing a perfect job of disposing the relationships, but when it is all done he hates himself for it.

    Thats kinda like the story... not really though.
