How many times, do I have to try to tell you
That I'm sorry for the things, I've done? ooh
But when I start to try to tell you
That's when you have to tell me
Hey, this kind of trouble's only just begun, yeah

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
That keep on falling from your mouth
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, ooh
And I've heard it said too many times, that you'd be better off
Besides, why can't you see this boat is sinking?
This boat is sinking, this boat is sinking

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's seldom spread
These are the tears, the tears we shed
This is the fear, this is the dread
These are the contents of my head

And these are the years, that we have spent
And this is what they represent
This is how I feel, do you know how I feel?
'Cause I don't think you know how I feel

I don't think you know what I feel
I don't think you know what I feel
You don't know what I feel
