Tell Me Lyrics

by The Green Children

Mama's drowning, and she won't stop,
Until she's sinking, until all has been forgot.
It's getting heavier, holding you up.
Well we're going under if you decide you're giving up.

Mom, I need you to swim to shore.
Show me you're fighting in a war.
Isn't it in you to wanna believe you like before?

So tell me, tell me now,
Tell me, you're gonna try.
Tell me, you don't want to break my heart.

The world is getting colder.
It's nearly frozen over.
I'm finding it hard to move,
And soon we're gonna lose.

Mama's falling.
She's falling fast.
And I can't reach her 'cause she's stumbling on the past.

Mom, I need you to wake up.
Leave what you've lost, see what you've got.
I am what you forgot.

Tell me, tell me why.
Tell me, you've gotta try.
And tell me, 'cause you've been breaking my heart.

The world is growing colder.
It's nearly frozen over.
I'm finding it hard to move,
And soon we're gonna lose.

The world is growing colder.
It's nearly frozen over.
I'm finding it hard to move,
And soon we're gonna lose.

I just don't read you.
Are you calling for help?
You're letting me go every time I lay down my rope.
Are you calling, are you calling?
Make me understand.

I just don't read you.
Are you calling for help?
You're letting me go every time I lay down my rope.
Are you calling, are you calling?
Make me understand.

Tell me, tell me now,
Tell me, you're gonna try.
Tell me, you don't wanna break my heart.

So tell me, tell me why,
Tell me, you've gotta try.
Tell me, you don't wanna break my heart.

The world is getting colder.
It's nearly frozen over.
I'm finding it hard to move,
And soon we're gonna lose.

We're both growing older.
I feel us flowing over.
And soon it will be too late, to realise our mistakes.
