Van Etten, Sharon - Tell Me (Live) Lyrics




Woke in a sweat
What I can’t forget, and what I’ll never ask to you
Tell me that I’m something that you just don’t know
Tell me that I’m somewhere you don’t want to go
Tell me that I’m someone you don’t want to know
Like the back of your hand
I don’t understand
Undone, disarmed
Well I don’t know and you don’t mind
This time there’s no time
Well I don’t know and you don’t mind

Deep inside of the day, anyone else would fall in your arms
But I do not
Do I, do I, do I want that
I was something that you just couldn’t feel
I was something that you couldn’t feel that was real
I believed you when you shut your eyes and dreamed a dream without me
Mmmmmmmmm
Sometimes I don’t think about you
Hmmmmmmmm
Sometimes I don’t think about it
Oh oh

Tears are falling in the underground
Falling into thoughts that turn to colours
The colours are the colours of my thoughts and they’re painting you
Sometimes I live my own life, my own life

    Woke in a sweat
    What I can't forget, and what I'll never ask to you
    Tell me that I'm something that you just don't know
    Tell me that I'm somewhere you don't want to go
    Tell me that I'm someome you don't want to know
    Like the back of your hand
    I don't understand
    Undone, disarmed
    Well I don't know and you don't mind
    This time there's no time
    Well I don't know and you don't mind
    Deep inside of the day, anyone else would fall in your arms
    But I do not
    Do I, do I, do I want that
    I was something that you just couldn't feel
    I was something that you couldn't feel that was real
    I believed you when you shut your eyes and dreamed a dream without me
    Mmmmmmmmm
    Sometimes I don't think about you
    Hmmmmmmmm
    Sometimes I don't think about it
    Oh oh
    Tears are falling in the underground
    Falling into thoughts that turn to colours
    The colours are the colours of my thoughts and they're painting you
    Sometimes I live my own life, my own life

    Tears are falling in the underground. Falling into thoughts that turn to colors. The colors are the colors of my thoughts and their painting you.

  9. eduardo veldi

    where i can find the lyricis of this song?

  10. chojinosebest

    This is so good, I just can't stop listening! I wonder why she didn't put this on Tramp, but anyway, it rocks.

    Jesper Sahner Pedersen

    Agree! Not on "epic", not on "Tramp", but on "Tramp Demos" and also later on "I Don't Want To Let You Down" in a live-version
