Tell her not to go
I ain't holding on no more
Tell her something in my mind freezes up from time to time

Tell her not to cry
I just got scared that's all
Tell her I'll be by her side, all she has to do is call

Tell her the chips are down
I drank too much and shouted it aloud
Tell her something in my heart
Needs her more than even clowns need the laughter of the crowd.

Tell her what was wrong
I sometimes think too much
But say nothing at all
And tell her from this high terrain, I am ready now to fall.

Tell her not to go
I ain't holding on no more
Tell her nothing if not this; all I want to do is kiss her.

Tell her something in my mind
Freezes up from time to time.

    General Commentthis song is amazing. its one of my favourites... its ironic becoz the lyrics so poetically sum up everything he is feeling, yet the original problem is that he couldn't express his feelings to her....

    General CommentI love this song. I like how it has such a cliched subject but doesn't sound cliched at all. I especially love the clown line.

    General CommentI also heard this song on Scrubs... and it really hit me, because I was going through the same situation. So yeah, this song really hits close to home for me... I can just seem to say what I should.
