Tell Me That You Love Me
William J. Hall - January 19, 1980

  1 I was playing in the back streets
  2 I was looking for promotion
  3 You were hanging with your dead-beats
  4 Complaining about the commotion
  5 You used to say I was a wierdo
  6 You used to laugh and call me egg-head
  7 Now you're sitting in the front row
  8 And you can't wait to get into my bed
  9 And tell me that you love me
  10 Tell me that you love me
  11 Tell me that you love me
  12 Tell me that you love me
 
  13 Then I try to make some money
  14 I hear you say you think I sold out
  15 Let me tell you something, honey
  16 You don't know what you are talking about
  17 You used to say I'd never make it
  18 You used to say that there was no way in hell
  19 But now you stand in line to take it
  20 And you are buying whatever I sell
  21 And you tell me that you love me
  22 Tell me that you love me
  23 Tell me that you love me
  24 Tell me that you love me
 
  25 I know that you've been hanging around
  26 You've been seeing every poor-boy in town
  27 Got such a penchant for poverty
  28 You go make fools out of them
  29 Then you come back again
  30 And tell me that you love me
 
  31 I used to think that there was nothing I'd want more
  32 Than to hear you call my name and clamor at my door
  33 And to see you - in the street - like I used to be
  34 I used to wish that
  35 You would see me
  36 And you would like it
  37 And you would tell me that you love me
 
  38 Now you're sitting in that front row seat
  39 You got my picture on your tee shirt
  40 You want to tell them all you used to know me
  41 When I was down and out and working cheap as dirt
  42 You go ahead and brag about you used to know me
  43 Go ahead and talk, talk is cheap
  44 Go on now, talk about me
  45 You know I'd love to know you're losing sleep
  46 Over me, babe.
  47 Tell me that you love me
  48 Like, tell me that you really care
  49 Tell me that you want to hear me
  50 Tell me that you'd follow me anywhere
