How many times do I have to try and tell you
That I'm sorry for the things I've done
But when I start to try to tell you
That's when you have to tell me
This kind of trouble's only just begun
(Only just begun)
I tell myself too many times
Why don't you ever learn
To keep your big mouth shut
That's why it hurts so bad to hear the words
Falling from your mouth
Falling from your mouth
Tell me


I may be mad, I may be blind
I may be viciously unkind
But I can still read what you're thinking
Let's go down to the water's edge
And we can cast away those doubts
Some things are better left unsaid
But they still turn me inside out
Turning inside out
Turning inside out
Tell me

Tell me

This is the book I never read
These are the words I never said
This is the path I'll never tread
These are the dreams I'll dream instead
This is the joy that summers bring
These are the tears we shared
This is the fear, this is the dread
A lot of conscience off my head
And these are the years that we have spent
And this is what they represent
And this is how I feel
Do you know how I feel
Don't think you know how I feel
I said think you know what I feel
