Tell me, tell me, tell me why you look at me that way
Your eyes scream everything that your lips don't wanna say
7 billion people in this world, somehow you're all alone
No matter where you rest your head, you're 7 billion miles from home
But when did you get to thinking that there's nobody left out there who can help you now?
I guess somehow the idea slipped between your fingers
But that same old wanting lingers
It's cold outside except for the light from your cigarette
And I'll bet that you'd rather be anywhere else in the world right now
Tell me, tell me, tell me why you won't tell me anything
This blackbird wants to fly away, she doesn't want to sing
Will she find her way back home, or will she fall into the sea?
She's like an out-of-tune guitar that just can't find a melody
Tell me, what's your story
Tell me, what's your name
Tell me why after all this time, you're still playing the game
Let go of whatever you've been holding in so long
Tell me, tell me, tell me what went wrong
When you fell out of the sky, back into broken dreams and lies
Did it hurt, or was it just another day?
And once you leave this place for good, leave knowing that I understood
Why you didn't tell me everything you wanted to say
