Tell me

Spread the love

original

 

I’m worn out always being afraid;
In the sun or up into the shade.
Its not gonna work;
Driving me berserk.
Baby, turn on your smile;
Cause its been a while.
Take my hand and I will dare;
Turn glances into stares!

Tell me what to do?
Tell me, tell me what to do?
Cause I m hung over you.

Watching as you heave and sigh;
Cast my eyes up in the sky.
Starting to snow;
Whisper faint and low.
Baby looking forlorn;
Don’t bear alone.
Take my hand and I will share;
Whether joy or despair!

Tell me what to do?
Tell me, tell me what to do?
Cause I m hung over you.

Drowning in your world tonight;
Roses red instead of white.
Its not gonna work;
Driving me berserk.
Baby no need for lights;
Your eyes so bright.
Take my hand and I will swear;
Upon love that we do share!

Tell me what to do?
Tell me, tell me what to do?
Cause I m hung over you.

    Oh, very nice. Enjoyed the recording. This def scans like a song – i like the turn on the smile. There is unforced story telling in this and you dont give it all away but let us understand the feeling. I like.

    Very nice, Sanaa. Enjoyed the poem as well as your singing of it! Glad you included the recording. Sometimes one doesn’t know for a while whether a relationship will work out or not. No one can tell another person what to do…each has to figure it out herself/himself.

    It was lovely to first read your poem – so passionate. And then delightful to hear your very beautiful soft voice singing the song. It added a nice detention to the words to hear them sung.

    So much to give and so much to share! A pity sometimes such overtures are not snapped up by one so blind. Ladies ought to play hard to get and men ought to open their eyes! Thoughtful write Sanaa!
