Tell me your thoughts now baby
Tell me what's on your mind
Tell me what's eating you alive
Tell me your latest story

Maybe you should tell me what is up with you
What's eating you up at night?
Tell me all that's bothering you
And every tear that's on your face

It's not that clear
I don't know what's eating you away
But you're burying yourself away
