Tell Me Lyrics

by Bob Dylan

Tell me, tell me I've got to know
Tell me, tell me before I go
Does that fire still burn? Does that flame still glow?
Or has it died out and melted like the snow

Tell me
Tell me

Tell me, what are you focused upon?
Tell me, will it come to me after you're gone
Tell me now with a glance on the side
Shall I hold you close or let you go by?

Tell me
Tell me

Is that the heat and the beat of your pulse that I feel?
If it's not that then what is it you're trying to conceal
Do you have any secrets
That will only come out in time?

Do you lay in your bed
Do you stare at the stars?
Is your main friend, someone alone
An acquaintance of ours?

Tell me
Yes, tell me

Tell me, are those rock 'n' roll dreams in your eyes?
Tell me, behind what door your treasure lies
Ever gone broke in a big way?
Ever gone the opposite of what the experts say?

Tell me
Mm, tell me

Is it some kind of game that you're playin' with my heart
How deep must I go, where do I start?
Do you have any morals?
Do you have any point of view?

Is that a smlie
That I see on your face?
Will it lead to glory
Or lead me to disgrace?

Tell me
Mm, tell me

Tell me, is that my name in your book?
Tell me, will you go back and take another look?
Tell me the truth, don't tell me no lies
Are you anybody's someone, praise for or price?

Tell me
Mm, tell me
