Tell Me (Who You Want Me To Be)

from by Tom Ricci

lyrics

Tell me what you want, tell me,
What you think of me.
What's been on your mind, tell me,
Won't you let me be.

Tell me what you want, tell me,
I'm not good enough.
Never satisfied, tell me,
Is it all my fault?

I want you to know, that it pains my heart.
I want you to know, that I played my part.
Tell me who you want me to be,
Tell me who you want me to be like.

What can I do? Tell me,
Keep you entertained.
Where d'you wanna go? Just tell me,
For me it's all the same.

'Cause I just rather stay, home and safe tonight.
You can go away, any time you like.
Tell me who you want me to be,
Tell me who you want me to be like.

Tell me more lies, tell me,
'cause I won't find out.
Are you satisfied? Just tell me,
Now you're having doubts.

But I just want to know, how it feels inside?
Do you sleep at night, don't you wanna hide?

Now it's time you should know, that we're not the same.
I can't change who I am, and I'm not to blame.
Everybody can go, back to their own lives!
Just wanna be left alone, please don't ask me why.

Tell me who you want me to be,
Tell me who you want me to be like!
Tell me who you want me to be,
Tell me who you want me to be like!
